Growing my own herbs and vegetables from seeds has given me a new appreciation for the industry of farming, it can be very tricky. Some seeds will propagate and others won't and it really takes quite a while for your crops to grow till they are ready to harvest.
Some seeds are happy seeds. Nasturtiums will take the usual 2 weeks till the first little green leaves appear, but once they see the sun, oh boy, are they just ready to go grow wild. Other seeds are shy seeds. They take longer to appear and then there's quite a big wait to find out whether those two tiny leaves you see are actually going to grow into anything worth while.
Our gifts and talents can be like that too. Some things we are just naturally good at and they burst out of us like water over a waterfall, but others are like a still clear pond, they serve a great purpose but they will seldom make any huge impact.
All our gifts and talents are valuable. Learn to value the time they take to grow and allow God to bring them to fulfilment.
