The “Super Bloom” of Gods Word

By Allison McCoy

As the Women’s Bible Study Coordinator, I’m passionate about seeing God’s Word planted in women’s hearts.

Have you heard of the Super Bloom in California? The Super Bloom is an explosion of wildflowers that paints the landscape in swaths of amazing color. This doesn’t happen every year so what caused a Super Bloom this year?

Annual wildflowers, which live only one year, won’t germinate in dry years and will remain dormant in the soil until conditions are right. This winter’s historic rainfall in California caused those seeds to burst forth in blankets of vibrant wildflowers throughout the state, transforming the landscape. The photos are captivating!

The transformational power of God’s Word is just as striking in the life of God’s people. As God’s Word takes root in our lives, we are changed from the inside out! I see this happening in the women that I have the privilege to study alongside as part of the Idlewild Women’s Bible studies.

After a long day of caring for little ones, they come in perhaps discouraged about a “parenting fail” yet they leave encouraged by a promise of God found in their lesson. They express fear about uncertainty in their job yet find comfort as another member shares her experience of God’s faithfulness. Nothing changes externally, instead there is an internal grounding in the hope of Jesus that is found in His Word. It’s the transformational bloom of God’s Word!

By God’s grace, may the seeds planted in your heart this Spring bloom and become a beautiful display of the transformational power of His Word! Sure, our lives will still contain “weeds,” but the seed has been planted. Trust Him to take what might lie dormant and bring it to life in His timing as you continue to faithfully sow and water His Word in your life.

2 Peter 3:18 “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.”
