Amidst all of her worries,
she kept her heart set on the hope
that the seeds she planted mattered,
and in their season,
they would grow.

For whatever seeds you have sown lately, may you know that there is still time for them to grow. They may not grow at the pace in which you want them to, but they will grow in their season. Remember this when you are overwhelmed by all of the things that haven’t happened yet. Remember this when you’re tired from the longest days at work, or at school. Remember this when it seems like everyone you know is rapidly moving past you. You may be feeling a little weary, but even then, the seeds you have sown will grow. Even then, the sun will still pour in through the leaves, and rain will still fall from the clouds. So just be. Be faithful. Be patient. Be hopeful. There is still time for these seeds to grow.

You don’t have to hold yourself together perfectly in that place. You can be honest. You can be gentle with yourself. You can say, “I do not know what is going to happen, but I am going to try to take this day by day, breath by breath. I am going to try to be present to this moment in front of me, even here in my uncertainty.” This might be easier said than done, but remember, you are on a journey. Remember, this is all a practice. “Taking it day by day” isn’t learned all at once. Just know that in those moments when you find yourself worrying about tomorrow, questioning your purpose, your identity, if you can carry on, and if you even belong here, beneath it all, you are still growing in the way you were meant to. You are still being shaped into who you were meant to be. And knowing this, you are free to be at peac
