God, make me a gardener
God is so amazing.
Months ago He planted a desire in my heart to want a garden. I know He did it because I don’t know anything about gardening, and never even thought twice about it. All of a sudden — right around the time I got super serious about cultivating my relationship with God — I really REALLY started to want a garden. I’m talking fruit trees, herbs and vegetables in the backyard …and beautiful flowers in the front and back.
I’ve spent time watching gardening videos on youtube. I’ve called around town trying to find gardening classes. I picked out a sunny spot in the yard. I look at pictures of beautiful gardens online. I stopped an older woman in the grocery store because she had plants in her buggy, and asked her for gardening tips. I pray for this garden to happen — and I have no explanation other than God as to why I want it so bad. I asked God to teach me how to garden — and bless the ground so that the crops flourish.
I was praying recently, and my garden came to mind. As, I started thinking more about it, the Holy Spirit revealed to me that this blog is the garden God placed in my heart! Wow, He’s amazing! I still want a real one though..lol — and I’ll have it before I leave this Earth.
Psalm 37:4 Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
I just wanted to share that. When God gives you an assignment, He knows how to make it the joy of your heart. He’s a Good Good Father! Everyone is welcome to have some food from this garden. It’s free!
And when I plant my physical garden this spring, the pictures will become a part of this blog.
I want to share something that God’s Holy Spirit told me about why this blog will help me be fruitful in His ministry. He told me that the garden I desire will become a farm of faith. He told me these things:
“You want to be a gardener, so you will be given the proper frame of mind.
A farmer is someone who makes time. A farmer is more than favorable towards his profession. A farmer is reproachful of anything that keeps him from his business. Farming is productive. It doesn’t worry about the produce. The produce comes when the ground is maintained.
It’s important to preach the message received. Provide them with the wisdom that is given. Many moral messages provide them with.”
The Holy spirit continues to minister to me about this garden. He tells me to always pray for the right reasoning of things. That means to be given a proper perspective of the things I want.
He tells me the reasoning of my heart’s desire to be a gardener is to bring forth wisdom. Wisdom is the fruitage of the Wise One.
I lack understanding in many things, and sometimes get frustrated because of it. He’s helping me understand that wisdom is a fruit that takes time to harvest.
Thank you Holy Spirit.
James 3:17 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.
