Keeping it Real...
Welcome! No matter how you found this, God knew you'd be here today. May you absorb the message He has for you. In 2011 I shared through my writing, today I've learned there is more to me than just writing. I have the energy and passion to share with others. Sometimes through Facebook live and others with my blog and most importantly, I've learned my passion to cook and bake is a vessel to share my writing and live presentations, while glorifying God in the process. I just needed to let go, and follow His lead.
I pray you've taken some time to reflect on the "rocks" in your life that you've moved out of your way to blossom and flourish as you were intended for. Take a moment to look at today's photograph. As you look at these two daffodil patches...can you connect it to yesterday's post?
I see two seperate daffodil patches growing from similar soil, with similar sunlight and same in species yet they are different. Some might say the soil is the same yet to physically touch the soil, the one to the right was a bit dryer than the one on the left. The one on the right has some bigger rocks surrounding it yet has bigger blossoms forming. The one on the left may have smaller rocks and less blossoms yet there are more actual daffodils growing in the group.
We are the daffodils - we're all surrounded by the rocks of life with similar feelings, reactions, hopes, prayers and pain while the color and size of the rocks might be different. We all have someone we can talk to and a support network of family or friends, and if you are truly blessed a support network of both family AND friends. I have a theory about why the left bunch has more flowers than the other - a fact you can't see in this photograph is the patch on the left receives more sunlight. It isn't a lot more yet it is more. The bird feeder slightly shades the one on the right when the sun is warming the soil and providing the necessary nourishments for growth.
We have a choice - we can receive the Son completely or we can hide in the shade and move those larger rocks out of the way in our own strength. We may appear to be growing and blossoming with more oomph than the next person yet on the inside...we just can't keep up. Eventually without enough Sonshine, fellowship and community - we will suffer the consequence.
In the fast approaching 17 years since Heidi's disappearance I have learned I need to absorb all the Son and sunshine I possibly can, surrounded by fellow believers and my family. With this...I will persevere and blossom. I might not do it as quickly as the next person but that is okay - God made me to be the best Lisa Allen Buske I can be.
I hope you can do the same thing...recognize your gifts, your trials and the hope you can have through prayer and a relationship with Jesus. :)
