Trees grow from seeds.
Seeds, lately I have wondered what exactly would the purpose of a seed be?
To be put into dirt, then ripped apart, to become something new.
As humans we experience the same things because we are living in a broken world.
Trees, when fully rooted in its own truth(purpose) become strong, firm, and significant. When a tree is fully grown it also provides a place of solitude and rest for the weary.
The God of the Universe created the seed. The God of the Universe knew it would suffer and be destroyed. Yet the God of the Universe knew the seed when rooted in its purpose, it’s truth, it’s life, would shine through. The trees life is all because God decided it would exist. God said this is what you can be, will you give up your will to do what seems right to follow mine, so you can really live freely.
When we, like the seed lay down our will for our Father’s, our life is lived in freedom. When we submit our will and confess our sins to Jesus, we are forgiven and free. When free, the Holy Spirit speaks, and how freeing it is to listen to the will of the Father for us. All we have to do is listen to the Holy Spirit and He provides the way to go.
Like the seed, we must be destroyed to truly beCOME who God created us to be.
Growth … Getting Rid Of Worldly-worth Turning-toward Heavens-worth!
Now from the precious word of God, instructions on how we can live in the way we were created (through Growth). Growth from the seed is growing into a beautiful tree. The tree when fully blossomed is full of life and even helps others rest in the source of life.
The Growth may hurt for a little bit, yet it creates a new beautiful freeing of one’s soul to its true purpose. Let’s Grow together.
“Therefore, as a witness of the Lord, I insist on this: that you no longer walk in the outsiders’ ways—with minds devoted to worthless pursuits. They are blind to true understanding. They are strangers and aliens to the kind of life God has for them because they live in ignorance and immorality and because their hearts are cold, hard stones. And now, since they’ve lost all natural feelings, they have given themselves over to sensual, greedy, and reckless living. They stop at nothing to satisfy their impure appetites. But this is not the path of the Anointed One, which you have learned. If you have heard Jesus and have been taught by Him according to the truth that is in Him, then you know to take off your former way of life, your crumpled old self—that dark blot of a soul corrupted by deceitful desire and lust— to take a fresh breath and to let God renew your attitude and spirit. Then you are ready to put on your new self, modeled after the very likeness of God: truthful, righteous, and holy. -” Ephesians 4:17-24 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ephesians4:17-24&version=VOICE
