It takes patience to plant a seed and wait for signs of life to spring through the soil, still longer for the bloom to grow into fullness.
Through it all, I do my part to encourage its growth. I provide water and sunshine and protect it from destructive elements that might harm the tender seedling. As it grows, I have faith it is evolving exactly as it should, unfolding in an orderly pattern.
I remember this as I support others as they grow. This may be overcoming a challenge or moving toward a goal. Either way, I resist the urge to push them in the direction I think they should go or rush their development. I know they are listening to the call of their hearts and their inner voices. I am patient and kind as I offer my support and love.
But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.—Romans 8:25
