A Thought About Growth

Daylilies Emerging

Yesterday I flicked aside some old leaves and matted dry grass in flower beds. Underneath the leaves and matted grass, the daffodils, crocuses, and tulips are pushing up towards the sun.

Seeing the persistence they display in pushing through the cover of leaves and grass made me wonder: Am I making the same effort to “push” through the “old leaves” of despair and unhealthy beliefs, and the “mat” of perfectionism to grow in my personal life and faith? While God can and does help me, I have a part to play, too. Am I doing my part?
