See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are. The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God’s children now; what we will be has not yet been revealed. What we do know is this: when he is revealed, we will be like him, for we will see him as he is. And all who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure. –1 John 3:1-3

    A dried seed pod that looks like nothing could ever grow from it, hopeless, trash. But soon, life and fruit will come from even it. Warmth and green, maybe even a pretty blossom. This gives me so much hope – thanks!

So beautiful that you picked this same verse:}
