Our Growth in Gods Purpose

Text: John 12:24 New Living Translation (NLT)

24 I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat is planted in the soil and dies, it remains alone.

But its death will produce many new kernels—a plentiful harvest of new lives.


Life can sometimes bring us to a point utter frustration with the circumstances we find ourselves in. We often feel overwhelmed and buried by the burdens of being drained emotionally, physically, financially and spiritually. The places our spirits go tend to be so dark and empty that we feel afraid and alone without any hope. John brings us a thought from God’s point of view supported by His promise, Hebrews 13:5 ….. I will never fail you , I will never leave you, to let us know that He is in control and this valley find ourselves in is actually the fertile soil God brings us to in preparing us to grow into the New Life and Creation he has in mind for our Purpose. May can often stop where we are in the confusion and noise of the struggle we are in and recognize that the dark place we are in is actually right where God needs us to be so he can prepare us to come forward as a more fruitful servant in His purpose for our lives.
