Sunday Stillness – 1 Corinthians 3:7
Daffodils – picture taken early February in Mesa, Arizona.
Reading this passage from 1 Corinthians I am reminded – that just as God makes the plants, and flowers grow – so too He is the one who makes me grow. One may plant and another water BUT it is God who does the growing.
“It’s not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What’s important is that God makes the seed grow. The one who plants and the one who waters work together with the same purpose. And both will be rewarded for their own hard work. For we are both God’s workers. And you are God’s field. You are God’s building” (1 Corinthians 3:7-9, NLT).
Looking forward to spring, seeing the new growth and new life all around me and in me.
Today is Sunday Stillness – Do you have a Scripture that spoke to you this week? Please link below. If you post to Twitter use #sundaystillness.
Read the Sunday Stillness rules if you are new here.
I would appreciate if you would link only about God’s Word. If you have a linky party that’s okay if it is about the same thing. Please no sales or prizes. I want this to be friendly but I must ask you to abide by the rules. Others want to read God’s Word – and that is what I would like the links to be about. I will take down the links that don’t follow the rules. Thanks so much.
Comments always appreciated. Linking with Jumping Tandem, and Scripture and a Snapshot.
I have hope because I know that God is doing a new thing, behold the old is passing away. I look forward to Spring as well my friend.
Spring is always wonderful because of the hope – and yes I agree our hope is in HIm.
I love your photo and verse.
Thanks for coming by. And thanks for your kind words.
I love the idea that God is the one making us grow. So true! I can rest in Him and not try to make MYSELF grow.
We try way too hard to “grow” ourselves. We need to study, read and watch but God only makes us grow.
Wonderful message! Thanks so much for stopping by Visits With Mary and inviting me to join Sunday Stillness. Looking forward to joining again!
Thank you as well. I loved my visit with Mary.
Praise God that He grows the flower of salvation, if we plant the seed! Thanks for the beautiful photo and Scripture & for hosting, & God bless!
Yes – we plant the seed, someone waters. But God grows it. An awesome picture. Thanks for being here.
Daffodils are such hopeful flowers (especially on this snowy, windy day here in Nebraska!).
Oh for sure they are. We live in Canada for 1/2 the year. When we return to our home town we get to see the daffodils arise once again. I had never seen them in Arizona before – so it was quite a treat to find them the other day.
Here’s my link for the day. (I don’t see your linky setup) http://www.jonstolpe.com/2013/03/10/rediscover-possibility/
Thanks for telling me Jon. The link is now fixed. I forgot.
