Righteousness and Praise Spring Up

This is part of the Christmas Break Exercise designed to keep us focused on the way of Christ in small ways each day.
"For as the earth brings forth its shoots, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring up, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring up before all the nations." Isaiah 61:11
The earth teaches us the way that God works if we pay it a little attention. God is the one who causes shoots to come out of the ground and seeds to spring up! If you were to watch these things happen this entire afternoon expecting to see the growth, I may think you are crazy. However, if you were to trust that God causes the growth over the course of this break with small moments of turning towards Him, I may think you are beginning to understand.
