Last night as I drifted off to sleep, I was thinking about seeds. I know, a bit eccentric, but that’s how my brain functions 🙂
All seeds have a purpose. Some germinate and flourish and produce more seeds. Some never germinate. Some germinate but then don’t have the right environment to flourish in and so eventually die or become a deformed version of what they were meant to be.
I am thinking that we are all a bit like seeds. I am thinking that everything that is within us – our thoughts, our words, our character, our mindsets – are also seeds.
Hmmm…Now I am thinking that as I develop and grow into a flourishing and seed-bearing creation, what I bear is going to be what is coming from within me.
So then, perhaps it goes to also say, that I am responsible for those seeds within me.
What I focus on, feeds those seeds.
What I believe nourishes those seeds.
What I say births those seeds.
What am I going to birth today?
After a couple of not so great sleeps this week, and a meeting to go to this morning, I am fighting the desire to allow negativity and self doubt to formulate and take hold of nourishing the seeds within me. It’s definitely a fight today. And that’s ok. I know I’m going to win because I’ve decided upon the outcome.
I’m choosing to receive and participate in only the truth about who I am.
And so with that, I have chosen that which I will allow to influence me, and therefore, influence the growth and development of the seeds within me. I have chosen to listen only to what God says about me, even if my emotions are not quite on board yet. I will remain staunch and stoic and maintain my careful guard over those seeds that have been planted within me, that the fruit I birth will be wholesome, flourishing, seed-bearing and everlasting.
So I encourage one and all to take a moment to check the health of your seeds 🙂 There might be a bit of gardening to do, but as you choose to nourish them intentionally with what you focus on, what you believe and what you say, I think you’ll be pleased with the plants that grow.
