“The tiny seed knew that in order to grow, it needed to be dropped in dirt, covered in darkness, and struggle to reach the light.”
Now, how many of us can relate to this scenario? This life is not easy with many abuses and struggles that we have to overcome. But as we struggle to overcome the darkness around us, we will grow in strength, stamina, and endurance as we persevere to overcome… and we will see the Light as we break through the darkness of our pasts. Let us all persevere!
“Not only that, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us.” Romans 5:3-5
Dear Lord, give us the strength and endurance to persevere through all the trials of this life. Help us to break forth through the darkness that engulfs us and rise above the brokenness of our pasts. Deliver us from evil and bring healing and restoration to all with roots that grow deep into You… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
