Day 10

Walk in the Promise

by Destiney McIntosh

The seed planted in darkness takes one hundred days to grow

In darkness she sits

Confused

And unsure

Water rains down

Kissed by rays from the sun

The seed is nourished

In darkness she is unaware

That where she is planted

Why she is planted

Is necessary for her to grow

But when the stem sprouts

She can see light

And believes that

There is purpose in her journey

There is a promise that awaits

So when rays from the sun kiss her

She kisses back

And when water rains down

She soaks in the nutrients

And waits patiently for her promise to be revealed

The seed believes

There is something stored inside of her

But what it is, is greater than what she can imagine

And when the sun kisses her

She kisses back

When the water rains down

She takes in more life

And waits patiently for her promise

Her stem rises

But nothing flourishes

She questions her journey

Questions her purpose

The purpose of the sun

And rain

When it seems nothing is changing

The sun kisses her

The rain nourishes her

She must wait patiently for her promise

The seed planted in darkness

Takes one hundred days to grow

She must wait patiently for her promise

And on the hundredth day,

The bud opens up

Revealing bright yellow petals against a dark center

She is vibrant like the sun

Stretching to the heavens

She is living in her beauty

Living in her purpose

Living in her promise

The seed planted in darkness

Takes a hundred days to grow

But it is worth the wait

Today’s blog post is dedicated to my sister, Aariana, a beautifully vibrant sunflower with whom God plans to do BIG things beyond what we can see or imagine.
