Veggie garden is in....We have high expectations for our yield
I think the choices we make in life are like my description of our garden and yard...First we chose the soil we plant our lives in - rocky, sandy or good soil like my garden. Then we choose what waters our garden of life...is it living water that Jesus speaks of or is it the polluted waters of this world ? Filling our minds or hearts with worry, frustration, anger, striving after material things or is it the peace given to us by our relationship with our Savior , Jesus ? Do we surround our lives with people who encourage our Godly thoughts to grow like a fertilzer promotes the growth of a plant. Do we till our life with the tilllings of hard work and even good acts but not a life of service to His Will . Do we serve ourselves by our lives and follow every wind that blows across our path to follow our dreams our ideas of success ? Or are we happy with the following His Will wherever it leads...following with open hearts to be obedient to things we just are not comfortable doing but willing to go wherever He leads ?
I know this is where I want to be...some days I do follow willingly and some days I fail . I want to be like the " Blessed man " in Psalm 1:1 to 3 who is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers. So we will be reaping what we sow...I want to prosper in all I do...because I am following His Will and not my own. I want my life to yield to the Lord and to yield much fruit just like our expectations are for our veggie garden.
