Dig the Dirt. Plant the Seed.

Grow where you’re planted.

I’ve heard that the past couple seasons of this life.

And for someone who likes to rip up her roots and blow in the breeze, it’s been a major wake up call.

I naturally don’t like people.

I’m not a hugger.

I pride myself on my intelligence and have a hard time seeing it in others (but that might be because I got to Wal-Mart too much 😆).

You can only imagine the number of true friends I’ve had in the past. 🙄

But Christ made my heart new through an intense belief that He can do anything.

I like people now.

I hug people.

I’ve come to realize that my type of intelligence is only one particular flavor in the rainbow sherbet that makes up this little world of ours.

When we attended Southeast Christian Church a few years back, Kyle Idleman did a sermon on sowing and reaping. For the tried and true Christian, this type of talk may be old hat. But for someone who’s lived her life toiling in rocky soil, it was the playbook I needed.

Is there fear doing something counter-intuitive to your old way of thinking?


But Jesus isn’t wasting his breath when he talks about belief.

We have to take Him at his word.

So dig the dirt. Plant the seed. And watch life grow but only if you believe it will.
