About a year ago, I decided to buy some plants and keep them in containers fill up a little space in our front yard. Know very well that I was not ready to plant them in the dirt, I kept most of the plants and replanted them from their small plastic pots and experimented with planting them with other flowers grouping three plants together.

I noticed my flowers recently are outgrowing the container in which they have been planted.

The leaves are small, the flowers are small and they’re screaming: get me more dirt and more space! I want to grow deep so I can grow LARGE.

What my plants are teaching me is that I want to grow deep so I can grow larger (my capacity).

My prayer this season is asking God to grow my roots deep in him so that I am ready to grow up in Jesus. I don’t know if that resonates with you! Let’s pray together: God will you grow us up in you and your word? Draw us near to you so that we can grow deep roots and mature in you. Amen.

Life can be full of hope and abundance; I am certain we can find it because the life we want and desire: Jesus came to give us life and we can have it abundantly! A little about me: I am a wife, first. Next, I am a mama to five children; my husband and I have four daughters and son! I love to connect and talk about things of God and look for beauty in life.
