Time to Sprout and Flower
In two weeks we enter the “Sprout and Flower” half of YEAR THREE.
Behind us is the revelation of chaos, “the let there be light” of YEAR ONE. The continued shaking, even beating or pounding of YEAR TWO which revealed to us a space for future life with chaos above and below. In the last six months we have identified some bare ground as the chaotic waters have been gathered to their places of rivers and seas.
So far very few see what we see, or expect what we expect. Most wonder why we work so hard at something which seems to yield nothing. However, we know what happens next, we know new life is just around the corner and we aim to have added our efforts to the Creator’s pattern. We have worked hard for seemingly little benefit because we know the paradigm of seven and believe in its creative effectiveness.
Here are a few thoughts for the next seven months, the second half of YEAR THREE.
Put aside your cynicism, believe what you see. In this very short part of the cycle your natural eye is not deceiving you, the crowd is right. Most of them have not prepared for this moment but they will be scrambling to join the obvious new life of YEAR THREE. The Naturalists now agree but those in on the revelation arrived first and have been working to improve the space and the bare ground. This great opportunity comes with an obligation of generosity. Keep an eye on the revealed instructions, seven months from now some additional generosity is expected of us. (Deuteronomy 14:28-29, and 26:12-15) Don’t miss this opportunity to be a blessing and think of it also as an opportunity to reconsider all your enterprise as the YEAR FOUR dynamics of setting new standards is about to take hold.
Finally, enjoy the run, rejoice in your Creator and stay humble. Gather some as autumn approaches but let the trees grow!
