His Love is Patient

When I think of the beginning of “Spring”…

I think of a time of gentle “unfolding”…

A beautiful, and sometimes surprising time of “surfacing“… of what has been hidden…

A time of revealing…what has been secretly growing underneath the surface.

An “uncovering“…of what has been preparing and growing in the place of “secret”…

“Alright little seedlings, it is now time to push through the surface and into the light of day! It is time to be seen and known and heard in the land of the earth! It’s time for all to see, who you’ve been designed and created to be…”

“My beloved spoke and said to me, “Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, come with me.”—SOS 2:10

And you know—

Sometimes it takes some time and seasons in the process, in the journey, in the hidden places…

For the seeds of truth to really sink into place, so the roots can begin growing in the deeper places of our hearts.

…”I DO belong…”

“…I AM enough…”

“…I AM loved…exactly where I am right now…”

“…perhaps I WAS created for such a time as this…”

“But you are God’s chosen treasure—priests who are kings, a spiritual “nation” set apart as God’s devoted ones. He called you out of darkness to experience his marvelous light, and now he claims you as his very own. He did this so that you would broadcast his glorious wonders throughout the world.”—1 Peter 2:9 TPT

“For the LORD takes pleasure in His people; He will glorify the lowly with salvation.”—Psalm 149:4

And I’m thankful for a Heavenly Father whose love so patiently allows for the time and the seasons that my heart needs to process through.

He knows what seasons we need in order to flourish and grow

He knows what our hearts need, in order to push through the surface and into the light…

He knows what our hearts need, to truly be able to thrive…and to live…and to love

And HE knows… exactly what He plans to do with “it all”…

…He knows just how beautiful the story will be. 📖💖🌈

And then, we can begin to truly know and see

Look with wonder at the depth of the Father’s marvelous love that he has lavished on us! He has called us and made us his very own beloved children. The reason the world doesn’t recognize who we are is that they didn’t recognize him.”— 1 John 3:1 TPT

Thank You, Father. 🌱💝☀️
