God will not give up on you.



On of my favourite things about going to church on the sabbath are the conversations I have. A recent conversation involved looking at the lessons we can learn in nature. These lessons are also known as ‘ChristObjective Lessons’.
I recently learnt a lesson from nature and can conclude in saying God will not give up on you.

 "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." 2 Peter 3:9

For about two years I have been trying to grow swiss chard. I decided to grow this plant because it is apparently easy to grow, it does not require much maintenance and the cost for some chard at the supermarket would drive anyone to grow their own.
During an early attempt to grow chard, my plant did begin to sprout but then some wind came and blow them away (I planted the seeds in a gardening tray). Fast forward some months I was away, and my youngest sister informed me that the plants I planted had began to grow at the end of the gardening. She exclaimed there was a lot! I believe when the wind came it must have pushed the seedlings down the bottom of the garden, they took root and grew.  Great new right? Nope, my mother got someone to cut the grass in the gardening this included my chard. So, no chard for me.
My most recent attempt involved growing the plant indoors. It was going will they began to sprout but they did not seem to get past a certain size. Other plants died.
I took the pot outside and forgot about it. Another failed attempt. I guess I just am not green fingered. I love the idea of growing your own food and really would like to be able to hence why I embarked on this journey, but I just keep failing.
As a result of not seeing any real results I gave the other seeds I had out to my mate who has an allotment and church members. I did keep some seeds and even brought some kale seeds. I am determined to grow something other than the hair on my head!
So, I had the conversation I referenced earlier and mentioned my failure to grow chard. The sister I spoke to suggested several reasons why the plant did not thrive. One being the quality of the soil or issues with the root. There may be skin deep issues that do not allow us to thrive. On a surface level things appear ok, but it soon becomes evident there is a rooted problem. Once we get to the root of the issue then we will be able to find a solution.
After the chat about chard I did not do anything but did have in mind to start all over again. That week I glanced at the abandoned pot and the plants that appeared to be died where very much alive! Not only that other seedling have appeared. I believed that this was because of where I had positioned the pot. I did not consciously place the pot where it could receive sunlight and water, but my belief is that it had been able to receive the latter and the former.
Whilst on our Christian walk we may feel as if the effort we are making is not amounting to anything and that God has given up on us or sees our case as one that is too hard to solve.
However, this is false. The things of God that have been rooted will soon blossom. We may not feel like God is working but he is! We will find ourselves in situations where we will put into practise that which God has planted in us. 
I left that plant pot and saw it as a lost cause. Others may see you as a lost case but God sees otherwise. He sees your potential and will create opportunities for you thrive. He wants you in his kingdom, he wants you to be saved he will not give up on you!

God will not give up on you.
