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!
