We are seeds. Today I saw a heart shaped seed. The shell was opened and the soft inside was exposed. It made me realize that as beings we are each a seed to someone's life. GOD produces us as seeds. We are here on this earth for people to benefit from our goodness. not to feel the wrath of our pain. Any hurt held in is what makes us bitter and toxic to ourselves and to others. To truly avoid this, it's VITAL that we intentionally stay prayed up.
Intentionally put ourselves in a position where we're being watered and fertilized with the Word of GOD. Allow yourself to be cultivated. It's the Lord who tills the land. Let the Holy Spirit till you. Like a seed things may be rough on the outside, but keep your goodness. Keep your softness. All the goodness, joy, and love inside of you, it IS your power.
The goodness that's inside of you has only been placed there by GOD, and it's been cultivated by every great experience and miracle you've had. Every kindness and generosity that you've experienced.
If the enemy tries to detract you from the belief in the goodness of people, think about all the ways different people have helped you throughout your life. There is definitely something even if you don't recognize it. Think about all the different ways people have helped water you. When you think on this, it will help you be more graceful and more loving, and in turn receive more water and more light.
The word shares not to put our trust in people, but it absolutely says "Love one another." It even says love others as yourself. You can't love yourself good if you're not treating yourself good. One great way to start treating yourself good is to choose to worship. Choose to come before your creator with rejoicing, because when you do goodness and mercy, and glory shines on you. You will be restored.
The Lord is a good Shepard.Psalm 23
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
