A New Season!
It’s been a while since my last blog and as much as my heart wanted to write, my head would not respond. We all go through things; some make us feel more stuck than others. At times we may feel like we are walking in mud and at other times like we are in quick sand. I would say mine most recently has been the latter.
The process seems so long and we can sometimes get weary. So how do we deal with these things? For me, the key is to never lose faith! When we hold on, and keep on believing that God is there right in the midst of it all, hope is restored. Surrendering to Him is allowing God to change and prune us.
Does it hurt? Yes! Will it be worth it? Absolutely! Being open to Him cutting back the things that do not serve us any longer, makes us grow stronger and more vibrant!
His Word is Water to our Soul!
With a new season upon us, I think about gardening! My roots as a farmer’s daughter still resonate loudly for me as the season of planting arrives. It’s preparing the ground, planting the seeds and then watching them grow.
So it is with each of us. The seeds of God’s goodness are planted inside of us. His hope, joy, grace, kindness, love and all the magnificent gifts He places in our spirit are waiting to be watered by Him. Inviting His Holy Spirit into our lives is fresh water for our souls, our gardens.
