Progressing by nurtured love from above.

Today’s Five minute Friday prompt word is progress You can join in the fun here: https://fiveminutefriday.com

So I saw the word progress pop up and thought “Nah too difficult, to hot think I will leave it”

I then decided to sit in the garden and for lunch and looking at some flowers it made me think about progress.

The flowers in the photo above were brought and picked out by my husband in a garden clearance section for £2. I was obviously very ashamed of these flowers and didn’t think they would last or were worth taking a photo off at the beginning.

The flowers when brought were barely alive. They had one bloom falling off and the leaves were brown and wilted for days. I am now fascinated how they are flourishing and progressing in their blooming. Every time I thought they had fully bloomed they hadn’t.

My plant has progressed through belief from my husband they they were worth saving. Through planting in great compost and nurturing they are reaching their potential.

Remind you of anything?

Dear Jesus
I thank you that you love me so much I am worth saving.
I thank you that you nurture me and help me achieve all I was created for.
Thank you that you never give up on me.
You provide my every need.
I blossom and bloom not just once but day after day with your attendance.
Help me to continue to grow in you.
Help me to reach others that feel they are not worth saving realise how loved they are by you,
And let them blossom and bloom into a the creation they were born for.
Amen

For we walk by faith and not by sight.

2 Corinthians 5:7

A walk to refresh our views.

Petworth, Sussex, July 2020

A weary soul in need of rest
A walk with God in the countryside
A short drive to the south downs
To walk and take in nature.

Our walk around Petworth
Starts inside the town
Historic and dramatic,
The walls of the estate,
proudly standing tall.

Into the country we go,
The rolling hills and woodland,
Breathing in the beauty,
Resting in the woodland shade.

The thing about nature,
Is you cannot compare yourself to it,
There is no jealously from flower to flower.
You accept the individuality,
And find the beauty within.

With nature there is no black and white,
No discrimination but lots of diversity,
You accept each flower, tree and animal,
Not ovethinking,
Purpose and individuality.

Sometimes our souls
Just need to be refreshed,
And we need to look at others like we look at nature.
No judging just accepting
And let God do his thing
By his Holy Spirit,
Let us be creative
So we can accept indivuality
And blossom and bloom like nature.

“In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they’re still beautiful.”
