Nurture The Gift

Someone said that sobriety was God's time.  The person could not give sobriety to themselves.  That was their experience.  But we can nurture a gift. Sobriety can be nurtured.  Faith is not something we can give ourselves.  It is a gift, but we can nurture it and grow spiritually.  Such people believe in a spiritual path.  But then they have to practice it.  We cannot make a flower grow.  We can plant a seed or a tree but there is no guarantee.  But we can nurture a flower so that it might fully bloom.  So too, we can nurture our spiritual life, the flower of a faith in something not us.  Do that and what might happen?  Bloom!
