How Could That Plant Grow in a Rocky Place?
I was sitting in our house garage area yesterday. While praying and reading, I took notice of small plants growing on the edge of our rocky wall. I did stop long enough to stare and ask, "How could those little plants grow there in a hard, rocky place?" Then I think about how our life is. Life indeed can grow in the most unlikely places! For those who love and called of God, good can come from bad. Joy can come from sorrow. Victory can come from defeat. I'm thankful for the trials and sufferings because they serve as wake up calls. They have brought massive changes in my life and I feel that I'm becoming stronger. Growth takes strength and I believe God is giving me that strength. The Bible says, "He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength" (Isaiah 40"29). With God's help, that's ME growing up through the present rocks and hard places of life. It is promising. There is new life and growth.
