Have you ever had the opportunity to tend and cultivate a garden? Even a small house plant takes attention and care. As you give attention to the garden and plants…you visually observe the growth and development that happens. The root system becomes stable…and eventually the plants or flowers are flourishing and producing. The small amount of effort you have taken to give the plants and flowers what they need…has given you positive results. If you take the same concept you use on tending to your plants and garden…and apply it to anything else in your life…you will achieve the same results. Things need effort…attention…and nurturing to be built up and grow. Often times we are guilty of ignoring and taking for granted…the very things that should be the focus of our attention…and then we wonder what went wrong? Seek God’s guidance in everything you face in life. Pray for Jesus to help you…and He will show you how. Tend to your spiritual life…tend to your children…tend to your marriage…tend to anything…and it will surely flourish.
The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. ISAIAH 58:11
Jesus says: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.” MATTHEW 7:7-8
God is with us.
