GARDENER

"I am the true vine,
and my Father is the gardener."
John 15:1

 

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, I long to make you like a well-watered garden filled with the fragrance of My love and beauty - a place where every dew-dropped petal offers praise to Me and gives evidence that you are Mine. Let Me feed you with the fertilizer of My Word and water you with the breath of My Spirit. Trust Me when I cut back the dead leaves and branches that no longer produce growth. Together, let's walk in the garden often.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
You've planted a garden of dreams in my heart, Lord. You've nurtured them carefully and pruned them painfully. But You've given me the wisdom and skills to cultivate, so I can tell the weeds from the flowers. Thank You for caring, master gardener.

SIMPLE TRUTH

No matter how small the garden, each plant is a unique treasure from God.
