“You are my rock and my fortress.”
From the beginning of the new season up to this moment, a pattern of growth has been emerging in the midst of darkness.
During prayer, I received a vision of a sprout pushing up through the earth; reflecting God’s strength in times of need, even when life happens or we miss a step or two.
There is strength in the divine that we cannot see. When the tide of life pushes against us and the rain comes down, the little stalk may appear to look as though it won’t survive the battle, “Don’t let anyone intimidate you.”
“Not a single sparrow falls to the ground without God’s knowledge.”
We can take comfort that this is a temporary situation that will not last the rest of our lifetime, “What I tell you in darkness, speak it in the Light.”
The sun will come out from behind the clouds and the ground will dry a bit, “Nothing is hidden that will not be made known.”
During this transformation that cannot be seen on the outside; the little sprout emerges into a plant. It will once again reach up to its source, as a child would reach out looking to hold the hand of a loving being, “All that springs to life, your peace presence brings.”*
“God your Light is greater than the brightest star. Your Spirit awakens all things.”*
