"Lord, I know that fruit is seasonal and that I won't necessarily be bearing fruit constantly. When I am in a season of rest so that the soil of my life won't be depleted, help me not to worry that my life is over. Help me not to strive against what is to be a time of preparing the soil of my heart for what is to come. Thank You that You will always produce a fresh crop through me as long as I am wiling to be planted." Stormie Omartian
This is my prayer for the day and a great reminder. We live in a culture that demands fruit in and out of season like fresh strawberries at the grocery store in February. Our souls and creative minds are different. We must allow for the season we are in because it is just healthier that way.
