It's like we're sitting around waiting for the perfect time or the ideal place. We've got a vision going on and it's grand and it sparkles bright. We keep our eye on it and hope and plan and dream that someday it's going to burst out big and large and oh so radiant.
But what might we be missing when our present has become all about the future?
What might our world look like if we bloom where we're planted right here, right now. In this very spot we find ourselves in, no matter how disappointing or scary or desolate it may be. What if that future and that hope that God promises us begins now and not later. Here right in this very minute and not out there on some nebulous magical distant shore.
Maybe we should be pulling out the yard tools, digging up the rich compost, getting our hands dirty in the deep dark soil. And fetch the precious seeds we've been hoarding close to the vest for some distant day.
Grab hold of the rusty watering can. 'Cause those blooms are just begging to spring forth. All your beautiful gifts, talents, creative juices, energy, imagination. And we have no idea what color, aroma, shape, or form they'll take as they emerge glorious and bright.
Not to worry. The Master Designer's got it all figured out.
