Growing On Up

Growing On Up

As adults we can be so presumptuous, like we know what’s best, all the time. God teaches us that we can plant and water, but He will make things grow. As any parent would amen, there’s so much relief in knowing we don’t have to make things grow. The design is for us to plant, cultivate, nurture and care. So let’s all take a deep breath in and a huge…Keep Reading
