sun + rain
Spring is here! And while there are plenty of things I am behind on- regardless of how many days I work until I am exhausted- the Lord is reminding me that often the most important things I tackle are invisible.
Like the underground roots of a plant, they remain unseen. Immersing myself and my children in God's Word, memorizing Scripture and applying it, speaking kindly, prayer. Seeking to hear my children and to know them.
Many times failed.
But they work together to create the tiny hairlike root system that gives support, strength and hope for the future. That underground system that requires water. And weeding. And tending.
Isn't God good? He helps us- because we couldn't do it without Him. And He 'gets the glory' I can hear my grandma's voice echo.
I love this video by Francis Chan. Hope you will take a few minutes to view it.
Blessings to you!
