WHEN IT’S TIME TO GROW!!!
My sister has many pots of Geraniums that she keeps inside in the basement all Winter long! Over the
Winter, they get really scraggly looking and do not have that rich green that they have outside in the summer. She
take care of them though the Winter months, watering them, trimming them back, and picking the dead leafs
off, but when summer comes she cut’s them clear down to the soil, then they get to go outside again where the sun shines on
on them, and they get watered. The stems and leafs begin to grow a deep full lush green, just waiting to get
big enough to bloom lovely blossoms of various colors that are so vibrant.
Well a few weeks ago I rescued some Geraniums that were in bad shape, they were calling my name. Shanna
take me home and help me, and they were free. Who can pass up free flowers? NOT ME!! Well I did just what my
sister did I cut them down to the soil, they are just starting to grow new stems and soon they will be a full, happy
plant with lot’s of beautiful blossom’s.
This is what God does to us as we grow in Him! There are times when we need a good clipping, to build our character. I know for myself when I pray for changes, the pruning starts and some trials can
come. As hard as it is I know that I will become a better person, that God is with me in this process. He
says He will never leave us nor forsake us. I hang on knowing that it does not last forever, but what it produces
is deep Green, lush stems, with lovely blossom’s full of various colors. They are BEAUTIFUL!!!
Ephesian’s 2:10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us.
Character isn’t something you were born with and can’t change, like your fingerprints. It’s something you weren’t born
with and must take responsibility for forming. – Jim Rohn
Are you willing to be pruned now and then? I believe it’s worth it, it builds our character and
make us a better person. Are you willing to do it? I believe in you BEAUTIFUL ONE!!!! SHANNA
