You are Growing

September 23, 2011

You think you are just waiting.

Just clinging to something but feeling like you are just paused.

Waiting.

In

Silence

You look around and think nothing is happening.

Who told you that?

Was it self?

You mean the self that doesn’t get to go into eternity?

The one whose work counts only here on Earth?

The one made from dust?

What if you take a second look?

Look closely?

Faith requires a filter.

You have gone through many things?

Inspired many people.

Is that not growth?

~

Self screaming you were not growing….you were sitting in silence…. just waiting around.

Look closer.

You are quietly growing

expanding

ripening.

~

~

You are not mono faceted….

You are a garden

Don’t listen to the snake.

Believe and walk in the growth.

When you stand in the Light you ripen and grow

If you stand in the Light you can’t help but grow

    Hey we are neighbors today….growth…silence… the theme of these days…quietly growing and ripening. All my post these days seem to spring board from biology with my daughter….planting…germination…
    I love the pictures…just lovely…

    Oh that line is beautiful “if you stand in the light you can’t help but grow”

      Yep I guess the key is to not cheat yourself out of actually standing in the light

    Beautiful words! I love how the growth process sometimes seems slow but that when we look back, we can always see how far we’ve come…especially when we stand in the light!

    You know with a plant you have to look hard to see growth happening. It just happens and overnight you think, “my, that plant is getting big!” Like with us, there is growth even when we don’t see it as it happens. I loved your poetry. Thank you for stopping by my place.

      yes we can learn so much from gardening.
      no small coincidence we were created from dirt in a garden.

    I love this:
    You are a garden
    Don’t listen to the snake.
    Believe and walk in the growth.
    When you stand in the Light you ripen and grow

    If you stand in the Light you can’t help but grow

    Amen…Be strong in the might of the Lord…Submit to God, Resist the devil and he will flee from you

    Growing in Jesus is such joy
