A little science lesson: For new life and growth to happen, literally seeds have to separate from the plant and die. And in that dying of self is where God allows supernatural life to happen — but that only occurs in the right season and at the right time and right conditions.

“Curiosity led the fish off-course. Taking the bait led to temporary satisfaction & eternal regret.” How are you allowing “harmless” temptations to hook you in and take you off-course from where God wants you to be?
You’ve heard it said that “LIFE is a JOURNEY.” But some of us are stagnant on that journey, or at best walking in circles without a sense of which is up or down. You may deny it, but we are all searching for something — something deeper, bigger than ourselves.
