Everything in life starts with small beginnings. A tiny seed is dropped in dirt, covered in darkness, and struggle to reach the light every day until it grows into a mighty tree. We are somewhat like plants just a little more complicated as we have emotions. Our thoughts are the seeds we plant but they bring on varied emotions.
Our thoughts will either grow flowers or grow weeds – depending on what we have planted. Today you plant a thought and when that thought takes deep roots overnight, it grows into desires and before long it becomes your new reality. That is just how scary seeds of thoughts are. You never know what mighty tree is growing.
Whatever gets inside your mind will either weigh you down or lift you up. Not every person or thought that comes knocking on your door should be let in. I am extremely cautious with who or what I let occupy my mind. There is a quote I like – “Ships don’t sink because of the water around them; ships sink because of the water that gets in them.”
In other words, do not let what is happening around you get inside of you. It will only weigh you down and kill your roots. You do not need a new year to start over. Just change the seeds that you are planting. Hate no one no matter how much they have done you wrong. Think the best of each other and never stop praying for the best for everyone.
Watch your thoughts and if you get tired rest but do not oversleep. Look for the beauty in yourself and keep feeding it. Bloom where you are planted. You have no control who like you just simply be the best version of yourself. A year from today you will be happy you planted great thoughts.
Be kind to your mind by staying grateful. Stop carrying around weighty thoughts they will kill your potential. We all have failures and scars, but we continued to believe the best despite them.
It is unwise to wish you were someplace else or with someone else. You are right now where God has planted you. Live and obey and love and believe God right where you are today. God, not your status defines your life. You cannot be happy or live in peace without Jesus.
Faith is like a little seed it will grow. Talk to God because He is always listening. It is more productive than planting negative thoughts. In the end God makes everything beautiful and in its time. Whatever God does that is the way it’s going to be. Always. No addition, no subtraction. God settles it.
So, we will quit asking questions and simply trust God. A woman that believes God is clothed with strength and self-respect. She laughs without fear of the future.
Let us root for each other and grow together. Hang in there. The Lord will fight for you, you need only to be still. We need to make a decision on what kind of seed to plant with the time that is given to us.
