His promise will sprout!

“Wait patiently for the Lord.

Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.” Psalms 27:14 NLT

Guys! I’m that parent. I lost my patience with this Lima bean. I’ve done this hundreds of times. I know it takes 6-18 days for sprouting to take place. Still though, seriously it’s been 5 days since Ellie planted it I should see something…. anything! Nope! Nothing! . No spouting is taking place. I decided to pour the Lima bean out and try and plant it again. Maybe I didn’t add enough soil. Maybe the bean wasn’t getting enough water. Maybe I bought the wrong soil. Is there a wrong soil? Maybe my bean was defective. That’s it! I need a new bean. As I poured the contents of the cup out I saw something amazing. The Lima bean had doubled in size. IT WAS GROWING! Something was happening even when I could not see! I quickly put it all back together after snapping a picture. Then it hit me. It was clear to me. I couldn’t deny what He was reminding my heart. When waiting on God you don’t always see what is going on (beneath the soil) behind the scenes. Be patient! His promise will sprout.

Howdy! I am passionate about sharing simple God lessons through everyday real life events in my daily life. I’ve been writing since I was 11. What started off as a way to escape or cope with the uncertainty of life, has turned into a calling. I do believe that God has called me to share what He has placed on my heart with all of you! I recently published a children’s book The Chicks Save Easter. You can find it on amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Chicks-Save-Easter-Helena-Rayos/dp/B086Y6K19M I pray God finds you where you are and you allow Him to take you where He has called you to love and serve Him.
