Cultivate


God wants to give you great and beautiful things. But, His plans and purposes for you are not found fully grown and mature.  Instead, they are entrusted to us as small, tiny, insignificant-looking seeds. We must see those seeds as the greatest treasures and full of potential.

Cultivating something takes work, intention and grit. I am no farmer and I do not have a green thumb. In fact, I have never planted a single plant nor have I been a part of any gardening process.

However, I do know that planting something and seeing it grow doesn’t happen over night.

I am a firm believer that what God does in the supernatural, He also does in the natural. We see this time and time again as Jesus would speak in parables, often drawling a parraell between farming and our lives.

We live in a culture that you can have pretty much anything you want in a matter of seconds.

Yesterday, I went grocery shopping in my pajamas. Without walking the isles or standing in a single line, I had my groceries delivered right to my doorstep.

If I’m not careful, I can easily use the same approach when navigating life. Many of us have adapted to this quick pace of life and often find ourselves frustrated when things don’t happen in an instant.

As much as I wish it weren’t true, good things take time. And, just as a farmer doesn’t expect to witness growth immediately after planting a seed, we shouldn’t expect to see growth and maturity in what we have only began to do.

So, keep sowing, keep watering and keep nurturing what God has entrusted you with, in time you will see that seed of potential mature into something incredible.
