I've been gardening for several years now. The garden has not only provided physical food and nourishment to my family and me, but I've also received several spiritual applications for my life as well. I have shared some here on this blog, so feel free to look for those garden analogies (use search). I want to share with you the most recent:
We used a
lot of horse poo in the garden this year. While digging around in the dirt and poo this morning, God told me that if I let Him, He will
take all the poo that comes my way and use it to fertilize my heart
& spirit, causing good things to grow and reproduce in/through me.
BUT, I have to be willing to let go of the poo in the first place.
Otherwise it will stay put and build up toxins in my body and spirit, causing disease and quite possibly leading to death!
Lord, thank You for speaking to me in the everyday things of life.
Thank you for taking the poo of life and using it to help me grow in
ways I never imagined. I pray for my loved ones that they too will
allow you to do the same in them and for them. Jesus, thank You for
making all things new!
