Forcing her nerves into a sense of calm, she shook her head. “I haven’t really gone quiet.”
“No. I’ve been in the dark, much like a seed.” Without looking at them she could almost feel their interest peek and a smile bloom with interest.
“Explain if you can. I like seeds, so much potential there.”
This made her smile. “Like a seed I’ve been in the dark. I have a lot of things pressing on me from every side, but the pressure is only promoting change. I have much to say. The words are on the tip of my tongue but I need to allow the right moment to arrive.”
“Like a sapling through the soil,”
“Precisely! Like a sapling through the soil. Seeds planted in Fall burst forth in the Spring.”
“Spring is right around the corner you know?”
Another smile. “Yes, it is. I can feel it in my bones.”
*No matter where you are in your process, trust that the Lord knows where He has planted you and you are not forgotten nor lost, not even under the darkness of pressure. Soon and very soon, your roots will reach their depth and you will breakthrough to His glory! Be encouraged. Your time is coming!
