I was praying about the separations and divisions I have recently gone through — nothing having to do with strife, but geographical relocations of those near and dear to me. I am missing them!
Not every division is a bad thing. We divide lily and tulip bulbs to create a new planting of flowers in a new location. When the bulbs are divided, then the flowers can spread out and multiply. This is what I believe is happening with the divisions in my own life. God is dividing us, so that He can multiply His influence, His love, and His truth in new places.
