A year ago today God planted my seed. I was in a dark place I couldn't see my future and I couldn't see my pain ending. God had a plan all along. As my roots began to grow in my dark place I began to understand faith. Each root grew with time; with prayer and reading. As time went on I noticed my darkness wouldn't end as quick as I'd like it to. God revealed to me I was holding onto the things I once was, the people that were once in my life and the hurt that I once felt. I began watering my roots with hope, courage, love and more faith. My darkness began to change and then I started to see a light. The light got brighter each time I watered my roots with hope, courage, kindness, meekness and faith. Of course, my roots weren't always watered as I'd like, I'd fall short, lose faith at times and I'd need grace. God had to continuously remind me that a flower blooms from the dark and it may wither and need extra water (faith) and sunlight (grace) often but that is okay. When the flower comes out from the darkness it blooms and everyone can now see the beauty. Not everyone will understand the depth of what we go through in our dark place. We often forget that we cannot see or understand everything a person goes through to get to where they're at (contentment, peace, creativity, etc) Keep in mind, we cannot see the flowers roots as it grows underground. That's what makes God so awesome. He has a personal connection to you in your darkness where it's intimate and for only you and him to see and feel His work within you (homeostasis). When you come out of the darkness He allows everyone to see the beauty of His work and you're the beauty.
We're the flowers and I'm thankful for my dark place and now I shine beautifully; understanding I can bloom a thousand times with God on my side. He allows me to blossom daily and I'm thankful for His grace!
Thank you for being a part of my journey. 😘 #shesblossoming
