In our lettuce greenhouse, the newly transplanted Red Sails Leaf lettuce is finally growing fast! During the first week after transplanting, they hardly changed in size. The next week came along and still they seemed slow to move. This morning, I walked into to the greenhouse and was astounded at the growth that happened in just one day.
We often believe that growth is only happening when we see it. Philippians 2:13 “for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.”
Often we fall victim to thinking God is not working in our lives because we don’t see the growth. Just like the lettuce, there are root phases and leaf phases in our lives. If your leaves aren’t growing, you need to make sure you are growing your roots in Him.
