God is the Bonsai Master of our lives. The expert artist who looks after our growth with so much intentional care. Who has nurtured us and shaped us every moment of our life.
So often, the inadequacy we feel for our faith comes from when we think we have to be the gardeners of our own lives. We believe, falsely, that it is on us to craft our lives into our own perfect design. On us to have to shape our lives in the right way, to wrap the wire around the branches and contort ourselves into our own vision of who we should be.
