Last year, I got ambitious with my porch flowers and ferns. 

Rather than keeping the flowers in their original, flimsy container, I actually transplanted them into a larger pot filled with dirt to grow. 

And you know what? My front porch and deck flowers were prettier than they had ever been before. I later discovered that in years past, my plants had become root-bound with no room to grow. My fern didn’t die. It was still nice to look at, but it wasn’t flourishing. 

You know, I bet some of us are root-bound. We are still green, but we’re not thriving. That’s not what God intended for you or for me. I know it. And I bet you do, too. New growth rarely happens in old places. So, when the Lord transplants us, let’s trust His process.
