Chapter Five - Make A Path; Leave A Trail

Within the year, all three bougainvilleas had more gorgeous fuchsia pink flowers than anyone would ever be able to count. When I mentioned this to the landscaper one afternoon, he remarked offhandedly that he had seen a lot of plants struggle to “make it.” And in all his years of working with plants, the plants that were damaged the most and really struggled and had to fight to survive ended up blooming better and became the prettiest, strongest, and hardiest plants.

I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase (1 Co 3:6-7).

As you walk and work through your own personal process, you will find the consummation of your own uniqueness coming forth, unlike any other. There is greatness inside of you. It is God’s little spark of divinity that ignites the fire in you.

Personal Process Assessment

You are second to none. You are unique, and you were born with the propensity to make your own path. What makes you different than anybody else? How are you unique? How are you free to express yourself?

God calls you through His love. The more you internalize this thought and let it seep into your spirit, the more you will be drawn to God. When we feel loved, we feel safe enough to be who God meant us to be. How do you make others feel safe? Who makes you feel safe? Do you feel drawn to God calling you?

Mentoring ignites the spark and fuels the fire. It is most effective when rooted in God’s love. Love does not demand its own way. Which friendships in your life are second to none? What makes them unique?
