The Beauty in the Bloom

Prefer to listen? Play audio here.

If we’re not growing, we’re dying.

It’s true for plants and people the same.

But here’s the deal: Maybe that “death” you’re experiencing right now—the collapse of a marriage, the diagnosis of a child, that change of job or rebuilding of your faith—is there to re-root you. Maybe the messy parts of life yield the biggest bloom.

I know that’s been the case for me. I lost everything that was certain in my life but in exchange I gained true connection.

“New life starts in the dark. Whether it’s a seed in the ground, a baby in the womb, or Jesus in the tomb. It starts in the dark.”
– Barbara Brown Taylor

Don’t fear the periods of no progress. Nothing blooms year-round, not flowers or families. But that’s okay.

Sometimes things have to “die” for new life to begin.
