Most of us are familiar with the parable of the sower (Matthew 13). One of the things it teaches us is that the soil is critical to a good, abundant crop.

Bloom

Our hearts are often closed off to relationships, growth and happiness due to something that has happened in the past or a fear of the future. In order to bloom, which is God’s will for your life, no matter where you are, it is very important to tend to your heart soil.

If past circumstances have caused you to build walls, tear them down with prayers to God ,the treasure of his Word and the support of people you trust.

The absence of these walls guarantee an entry of fresh oxygen and refreshing ventilation.

If people have hurt you in the past by their words and actions, release the weight into the arms of God, forgive them and respectfully detach from them if you feel reconciliation is not what God desires for you.

The absence of past hurts leaves your heart free of weeds.

Fear is incredibly common (I feel it myself, several times a day}. The remedy for fear is truth. And this: Perfect love drives out all fear (1 John 4:18). God loves you. Inside and Out. Old and New. Nothing you have done can stop Him. Let go of the fear.

The absence of fear allows the seeds to take root.

Take care of yourself. Cultivate the tender soil in your heart.

Laugh as many times as you can throughout the day.
Dance/Exercise at least once a day. Take care of the body that God gave you.
Read, believe, soak in the rays of hope.

Then unfurl your petals to the beauty of the sky.

Bloom.

  1. Hi there. I found you at FMF as your post is just before mine. Thank you for sharing this. It was very concise and to the point with many things I think most of us forget. Particularly about reconciliation not always being what God desires (either now or forever). That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do our part and what God commands (forgiving and giving it to Him), but we cannot force what isn’t ours and may not be in God’s plan for our relationship with that person.

    God bless!

    1. Thank you very much for your lovely comment! I am very happy that you took the time to stop by! The point about reconciliation really stood out to me. It was just what I needed to hear.

      Thank you and God bless you!
