Grow: Undergo natural development by increasing in size and changing physically; progress to maturity. Develop, come into existence, increase, become gradually or increasingly. We talked about planting – the painful but necessary process for growth. And we talked about flourishing, how just saying the word flourish sounds lovely and fun. There’s something beautiful about the idea […]
Flourish: Grow or develop in a healthy or vigorous way, especially as the result of a particularly favorable environment. Develop rapidly and successfully.

Friends, we are now in our last week of the Flourish study! Find the verses for week 8 here!
We’ve have loved studying Flourish the past six weeks with you. We’re recapping week Six on Kindness and Goodness, and praying that we would believe He is our true Good.

What is the difference between waiting and practicing patience? How can our heart find rest and our soul say, “It Is Well” even as we wait for the Lord? We want to be women who have joyfully surrendered to our Father’s good timing, not just people who pout in the waiting.

But Christ was always there – just as He was – and that was enough.
