You see this onion? This is onion is from my kitchen. It was not used by me yet in some delicious way. One day I saw a cute green sprig coming from it. I just let it be to see what would happen. Before I knew it, it grew really long.
It was preprogrammed by God to bioloigically grow on it's on. To me that is amazing. The growth was set on auto pilot basically by the creator of the onion. Every plant on the planet is set to do the same. WOW, if you ask me. It makes me think about human growth. We are always growing physically, mentally, spirtiually. Well most of us anyway, giggle giggle. We are growing either in a good way or bad.
This onion was not given the ground, water & at first no sun light, yet it started to grow with endurance. Why? It was created to do so. It did what it was supposed to do. When you grew as a child did you ever tell your bones or hair to grow? No! Growth is a natural accurance regardless of the environment. Sadly if put in the wrong environment, any living thing including people may not grow right. However, even then something miraclous might happen. Have you ever seen an inner city kid who had all the odds stacked agianst them yet they sought on their own a better and won!
Or a little flower in the mist of a big city grow up from within the cracks of the sidelwak? Growth in most situations will happen in some form or another.
Look at Romans 5:3 AMP 3 And not only this, but [with joy] let us exult in our sufferings and rejoice in our hardships, knowing that hardship (distress, pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance.
No matter who you are God cares about your growth. Do you care about your growth? I hope so! I took this onion since it was fighting so hard to grown and planted it in my little Victory garden I am getting ready for spring. I just had too! I was enjoying wacthing it grow and wanted to tenderly care for it. Since I did take that time, guess what, it might yeiid me more onions to enjoy fruitfully!
So where are you? Do you find yourself in a new place you are not used too as I was recently? Sometimes God's plans do not look like ours and we find ourselves in situations or places we never thought we would be in but you have a choice. To keep resisting the environment and GROW a cold potentially non fruitful heart or GROW an embrace your new situation and actually bloom! Do you see those beautiful flowers up there in the other picture that are growing in a not so ideal place for flowers, yet they grew another reaching towards the sun growing in the direction of it creator. End result, beautiful leaves that bless all who look upon them as they walk by and give glory to God in doing so. Did you know God cares for the flowers? How much more does he care for you in your growth?
You were made in the image of God and you are created to bring him glory in your own unique image.
Will you grow to glorify your maker NO matter where you are? Will you have a growing mindset you can choose!
