I bought bulbs of daffodils, tulips, and crocus, in the fall, and never got them planted. Seeing daffodils blooming in other people’s yards reminded me that mine were still in their mesh bags.
When I checked the bulbs, they had started to grow in the bags. I found several resources on line that said although it is best to plant them in the fall to allow them to establish their roots before spring, if you didn’t plant them at the appropriate time, it is still best to get them in the ground. See this resource.
So I planted them this week.
Now I shall wait and see. I love flowers so much, I really hope they do well. If they don’t this year, I am sure they can establish their roots and will take off next year anyway.
With many things in life… it is never too late. If you haven’t gotten something right in the past, you can still work on it, plant it, or change it. Sometimes we think it is too late and give up, but just as the tulips tried to grow in their mesh bag, things that need to be changed in your life are trying to emerge, they just need a little help from you.
See Luke 8:5-15
“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1
Are you planting Seed (The Word Of God, see Luke 8:11) in fertile ground (your mind and soul), or are you leaving your Seed in the bag?
