In Full Bloom |
I was talking with a friend last night about how, in order to grow, you have to be put into a larger environment that actually has space and encourages growth. If you stay in just small beginnings but never move from there, you never grow. We cannot despise small beginnings but we must transition out of them in order to continue to grow when it is due time. We actually cease to thrive when we fail to move into the next season.
There is also a crazy thing that happens with plants, if they are producing too much, it can actually cause exhaustion and death to where there was once flourishing life. This is why pruning is necessary. The cycles of plant life are so intriguing and help me understand how God works in rhythms. Embrace the rhythm. Be where you are.
