So how would one go about making this flower blossom into this beautiful color- actually it is as simple as coffee grounds. By simply putting small amounts of coffee grounds (or other organic material) into the soil. As the material decomposes, the organic materials will add aluminum to the soil (making it more acidic). This process will not take place over night, but slowly the changes will start to occur. The plants then slowly start to show signs of the new brilliant color. Finally, over time they will be transformed into the "Hydrangea blue" you were awaiting.
Now that you have had your science lesson I guess the question is how is this relevant? Well I am glad you asked. Christians are so much like the hydrangea concerning the spiritual walk. You can be influenced greatly by the things that are around you, whether it be positive or negative. What soil are you growing in today? Is it one of negativity and despair, or one of gratitude and thankfulness. What nutrients are you feeding your soul? Is it the word of God that is infallible and Holy, or the truth the world would have you believe? Everyday is a chance to build yourself up to grow the way God intended you to, but there is also an equal opportunity to flounder in the twist and turns of life. You must be willing to continually feed on the Word of God, and put it into action in your life. You see if the coffee grounds sat on the shelf beside the the plant, they would have zero effect on it's color, but when mixed in the soil they begin to produce beautiful results. The same is true about God'S Word. Its not enough to read or hear God's word, it has to be poured into every nook and cranny of your life. You have to be submissive to God in every facet. Certain areas cannot be boxed off, but have to be willing to die to self, in order to allow an amazing transformation. I encourage you today to look at what is being poured into your life. Then figure out what is producing deep change, and what needs to be thrown away. Only allow those things which deeply grow your character and love for others to remain.
1 Corinthians 13:13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
Philippians 4:8 whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things.
