Why are you blessed to be in a pile of manure all the time?
The Grace-Full Growth Formula!
“It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.” – Mark 4:31
The mustard seed doesn’t grow by being in a perfect location and never having any difficulties. The mustard seed grows by pushing through the difficulties and the hard earth and the manure because the mustard seed recognizes that Light and Love is waiting for it above!
Why is this important?
It’s important because the kingdom of God which is here and now to those under Grace is still growing in each and every one of us. It’s important because of the Grace Growth Formula that I want to share with you now.
We don’t grow by following more law- “All things are lawful” we grow by learning to Love like He Loves us! That is a gradual process of going into and out of the hell so many people face so that we can know the isolationism and the struggle that they face and show them the Love of the Father. This is how Paul learned to be content in any state he was in- “To live is Christ (Love) to die is gain (heaven and eternal peace).”
Here is a meditation for you. Find a time and a place where you probably won’t be disturbed and just take a moment to take a couple of deep breathes in and out. With each exhale just relax a bit more and let your stress leave you with your deep exhale. When you feel a bit more relaxed just get back to normal breathing and:
Breathe in and say:
“God my faith”
Breathe out and say:
Practice this each day and throughout tough days and know its ok to doubt and its ok to question but keep coming back to the knowledge that He is in control!
