"The Looking Glass"
As I grow in understanding, I open myself to receive more of God’s blessings.
When a plant blooms, it takes in the energy of the sunlight, the oxygen from the air, and the nourishment of water. Slowly, the furled petals of blooms unfold, revealing the face of the flower. I, too, am like that flower unfolding. As I mature into my spiritual development, I receive blessings available to me as a divinely created being.
So I prioritize my spiritual growth by devoting time and energy to God. Spiritual texts and other resources help me to learn and deepen my understanding of faith-based teachings. I bring what I have learned into my life through my thoughts, words, and actions. I create daily practices that support my further seeking of God. As I grow and allow more of God’s light into my life, my true self is further revealed.
May you be made strong with all the strength that comes from his glorious power.—Colossians 1:11
