One of my very favorite things to see in creation are plants growing from little tiny seeds. I love the way the little seedlings grow and stretch their little “arms” toward the sky, as if they have just awakened from the best nap EVER.
Jesus uses the example of a mustard seed here in Mark 4:30…
And he said, “With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable shall we use for it? It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when sown on the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth, yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes larger than all the garden plants and puts out large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade.”
I LOVE that something so small can eventually be used for a much greater purpose.
How awesome is that?
My garden is such an incredible place to spend time in because it’s a reminder to me that God uses me the same way as the seeds I am planting (eating the fabulously fresh produce doesn’t hurt, though).
It reminds me: He has great plans for you, Bon.
Plans that are even bigger than you can see right now.
We always say we want to know what’s going to happen, but if He told us now, His plan would probably blow our minds or we would just not believe it.
When you feel like you are ONLY alive to work, eat, and sleep, remember His promises.
When I first heard that there was going to be a place like Beautifully Rooted, I was sooo excited. The people who have reached out to me with their words every day for the last few years have now joined with other awesome people I am getting to know, in one space. I have followed Heather for so long her blog even had a different name and she had only a few followers. She’s come so far in inspiring us all! Now Heather and Rachel have brought this glorious new space for Jesus followers to gather.
