planting trust…

When I asked if they had any pansies left she said… Yes… but they don’t have much color on them right now

I said… That’s OK… grabbed a wagon and headed to the greenhouses she numbered off…

And Yes… she was right… not much color…

Some older plants… had few blooms… I gathered a couple of flats… with the colors I wanted…

Then… I saw flats of new plants… healthy… green… but no blooms… no color…

Looking at the tag… I saw what I wanted… multicolor clear blooms…

So I put back the others… and took four with absolutely no color… except for the tiny pictures…

Back home… in the garden… the words came to mind… planting trust

Trusting the tag…
trusting the picture…
trusting future growth…
trusting color to come…
I planted…

Wednesday… I planted trust… on top of hope

And I see how this is like prayer… a planting of hope… and trust…

Taking time… and energy…
Reaching out to the unseen… unheard… with words… requests… questions…
Hoping He hears… responds… works… forgives…
Trusting His presence… sovereignty… love… grace…

Exercising prayer… like planting a garden…
waiting for hope to spring forth…
and trust to prove worthy…

“… have regard to the prayer of  your servant and to his plea, O Lord my God, listening to the cry and to the prayer that your servant prays before you, that your eyes may be open day and night toward this house, the place you have promised to set your name, that you may listen to the prayer that your servant offers…
2 Chronicles 6:19-20 ESV
