Planting Seeds of Hope
Sometimes the seeds we plant sprout later than we expect, or even seem to disappear, only to surprise us by sprouting someplace else entirely.
Have you ever invested time or energy towards trying to make something that is important to you happen, only to find the end results disappointing?
It has happened to me many times. And in the past, I would often sink into a state of discouragement that lasted several hours, or even a couple of days.
The problem with this, is that when we are in this state of disappointment or dispair, we miss out on many wonderful opportunities. And, haven't you noticed that we impact those around us with our gloomy state of being?
What is helping me bounce back more quickly is remembering my belief that there is a Power greater than us that can see a picture bigger that is bigger than what we see.
When something doesn't work out the way I had hoped, I try to have Faith that the Greater Power is at work, finding the perfect time and place for my Seed to Sprout and Grow!
What helps you hold on to Hope? When have your seeds sprouted in unexpected ways that renewed your Hope?
To help us all Plant and Hold on to Seeds of Hope, I am hosting a Virtual telegathering in honor of the Spring Equinox. We'll be sharing stories about people and things that have inspired hope in our lives. Contact me for dial-up information.
If you can't join us, I hope you will find other ways to plant your Seeds of Hope.
