As part of reading The Carrot Seed last week, we planted some seeds (not carrot, they take too long to germinate for little ones!)
Every time I look at this little sprout, I cannot help but see what eagerness it is reaching toward the light with. It's goal and mission is to grow close to the light. This plant knows that light means life, food, energy, surviving and thriving.
Hmmm, is that how I live my life? Growing upwards in full surrender of anything else except getting as close to The Light as I possibly can? With my full posture straining ahead to Him?
Thank You, Lord, for teaching me from Your creation about how to live for You! Always reaching, stretching, growing closer to Your precious light! I want to draw from, live, feed and thrive on Your Light and Your Word!
