Consider the lilies of the field
How they grow.
In the Springtime, rising out of the dark earth, green spears show up.
After some waiting, lily buds appear.
And then behold the lovely blossoms!
Consider you and me
How we grow.
God is working with us also.
Growing spiritually is a long slow process;
We do not come to maturity in a month or a year.
Our faith is enlarged as we walk with the Lord through sunshine and cloudy days.
It is then that we discover we really can trust God!
In the process, His Spirit puts love, joy and patience into our lives.
Lord, I want to keep growing.
You promised to work in me until the end of my journey
Then I shall experience Blossom Time also.
“Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.” – Philippians 1:6
