Grow to Your Fullest - Stand Firm in Your Failures
So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the teachings[a] we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter - 2 Thessalonians 2:15
Time is flying. It turned out to be August. Over half of 2021 has gone. Last Sunday, our pastor delivered a message, Stand firm in trials. It reminds me of the lilies I planted.
This year is the fifth year, but it is the first time for me to see such a beautiful blossom. Every year, before blooming, the Lily is swept away by the animals at night. This year, when I saw many flower buds, I began to carefully protect it from being trampled on by animals. But still, one day, I found most of the buds were eaten by animals over night, leaving only four buds. Finally they bloomed their inner glory to their fullest. See picture left.
From this we can learn that even though we have failed many times in the way of following God or chasing our noble dreams, as long as we don’t give up and don’t leave God, just as this lily, always root in the soil, one day we will be in our full blossom. Shine beautifully as the flowers.
I have stopped blogging for a while when I have been busy to rewrite the book and been stopped by other life priorities. In May, the book, Grow to Your Fullest has been republished. Now I will get back on track on my blogging and start writing series of blog posts. In the blog posts, I will share with you holly and practical recipes of growing to your fullest lives.
