There is a house in my neighborhood that has been neglected. The grass is cluttered with trash, and the yard is full of weeds. Driving by, I often wonder why they don't take better care of their yard?
Truth is, at times we neglect our own yard. The grass gets taller than we would like, or the grass goes from green to a slight brown from lack of watering. We get tired of watering our yard, in fact I have thought what a great investment it would be to get one of those automatic sprinkler systems installed. That way the water could be turned on automatically without any labor on my part.
To have a green, healthy looking lawn we must consistently water and tend to it. Each of us is much like our neglected yards, we need regular and consistent watering by God's Word in order for our spirits to be lush and green. If we only open our Bible every once in awhile, then we will remain patchy and weak but reading and meditating upon Gods Word daily, we will be thriving and vibrant Christians.
PSALM 1:3 "He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not whither. Whatever he does prospers."
Today, I am thankful for the sprinkler system that we have when Gods Spirit rains upon us! What are you thankful for today? Please join your grateful heart with ours, and link up below. HAPPY THANKFUL THURSDAY.
Sharing God's love and truth thru devotional writing here and across the web. My heart is to bring hope,love and forgiveness to those that feel broken and lost. I was once broken and lost but I am so glad that God didn't let me stay that way. Come along with me on this adventure of faith and may you also find the hope and love that you are longing for! :)
