The Seed – Accept, that huge sigh of ‘all right, it’s yours, Lord’
The Water – Surrender, let go after holding on so tightly to my own way
The Bloom – Commit – the sweet commitment to God’s way, whose hands are more capable to carry my needs, questions and fears than God’s. He is the only one that can do anything about my situations.

‘Open My eyes that I may see, Glimpses of truth you have for me’ …

Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God; Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day. 2Timothy 1:8 -9, 12
