What Bulbs can teach Us about Life!

30 05 2014

15417025_sLast time we talked about the importance of allowing things to go fallow. Today I want to talk about that period of dormancy which we enter as things in our life to go fallow.

With the coming of spring I associate dormancy with bulbs. Like bulbs we have periods of growth and flowering, followed by a period of dormancy where our works, like the foliage of a bulb die back to ground level at the end of each growing season. For spring bulbs, the end of the growing season is in late spring or early summer. Spring bulbs start to grow again in the fall and flower the following growing season.

When a bulb is in its dormant phase the underground structure is storing up nutrients for the coming growth season. How you care for your bulbs impacts the quality of the flowers which are produced in the following growing season!

During time when you are called by God into a dormant phase, remember what you allow God to pour into your life will affect the quality of the person you are and the works God can produce through you in the next season.

As one area of my life goes into a dormant phase I am truly coming to understand the importance of this valuable phase of life. God is speaking to me afresh about healing and its connection to the captivity and bondage we experience. So like a bulb which stores of nutrients, I am pressing in and studying and I am being healed.

God is breaking my captivity thinking, breaking the bondages which still exist in my life and the lies which stand like road blocks to the greater expansion of healing ministry God desires to flow through me! I look forward with expectation for the new season when it begins, yet I rejoice in the depth of intimacy I am experiencing with the Lord right now.

Join me next time when we talk more about this season of change!
