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!

Today I have invited Shellie to speak to us about beauty in the waiting. Here is Shellies story.
Many of us when everything around us seems to fall apart much like 2020. Want a hurry up and fix this quickly Jesus fix! We are all guilty of that at some time in our lives. After all we are human and we desire good things over the rocky mountain climb. However, sometimes when we rush things we miss the beauty and growth, that takes place in the waiting. I write this from a first hand experience. I would like to share straight from my heart about a journey of waiting that still has not ended! I promise it's laced with grace, hope, and beauty. So grab your favorite warm drink and join me while I share what God has for you to hear.
Today I asked the Lord what was on his heart. He said Royalty, his children are royalty. Think about that for a moment. The word will speak for itself.
Isaiah 62:3 (NKJV) You shall also be a crown of glory In the hand of the Lord, And a royal diadem In the hand of your God.
1 Peter 2:9 (NKJV) But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;
Ezekiel 16:13 (NKJV) Thus you were adorned with gold and silver, and your clothing was of fine linen, silk, and embroidered cloth. You ate pastry of fine flour, honey, and oil. You were exceedingly beautiful, and succeeded to royalty.
1 Peter 2:5 (NKJV) you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 4:24 (NKJV) and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.
2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV) Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
Revelation 5:10 (NKJV) And have made [a]us kings[b] and priests to our God;
And [c]we shall reign on the earth.”
Revelation 1:6 (NKJV) and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
Jesus mighty Yeshua is indeed King of all. He made us to be seated in Heavenly places with him.
Ephesians 2:4-10(NKJV) 4 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
If you do not believe me I challenge you to take that up with God this very day. Sit quietly for a bit today and wait and listen without distraction. Ask him are you royal? Ask him how he feels about you.
