Dash of Salt 007 - Buried or Planted?

Genesis 1:11-12 NIV

The Bible Says... “Then God said, ‘Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seeds in it, according to their various kinds’. And it was so. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.”


Just a Dash

Have you ever desperately asked God, “Why is this (still) happening to me!?”


· Why hasn’t my career taken off?

· Why am I still struggling financially?

· Why am I still single?

· Why is married life not living up to the hype?

· Why are my relationships suffering?

· Why am I stuck in a rut of anxiety/depression/fear/insecurity?

· Why are all of my plans falling through?


Over the past year or so, I’ve gotten so discouraged because the plans that I had laid out for myself were not coming through. There were times when I was so overwhelmed by the trials in my life that I felt buried under the weight of it all.

I recently stumbled across a post that asked, “Have you been buried or were you planted?”

When someone or something is buried, that burial marks the ceremonious end of a life. No matter how much was accomplished or achieved during life, once someone is buried, there is no expectation for any purpose, growth or development after that burial.

On the other hand, when something is planted, there is an expectation for growth and the production of new life! In Genesis 1:11-12, God commanded the land to produce vegetation (LIFE!). In the same way, God does not bury us in our circumstances. Instead, he plants us right in the midst of those trials to produce life…because that’s where He needs us to grow.


A Pinch More

In what areas of your life do you feel buried?

These areas are your soil!

Considering that God has actually planted you there, what growth is God expecting from you in the soil where you’ve been planted?

Turn your face towards the sun SON *wink* and see how much more you’ll grow!
