God the Gardener
James 1: 19-21 Post this at all the intersections, dear friends: Lead with your ears, follow up with your tongue, and let anger straggle along in the rear. God's righteousness doesn't grow from human anger. So throw all spoiled virtue and cancerous evil in the garbage. In simple humility, let our gardener, God, landscape you with the Word, making a salvation-garden of your life.
I have this 'weed' in my life that like a dandelion left unpulled, roots and all can turn the landscape of my life from HIS green to yellow. The desire for PURPOSE. Pretty enough on it's own, unnoxious and yet left to seed becomes the driving force of my life. Not Christ.......MY PURPOSE......looking to DO something of value. When He says following Him....following Christ is my purpose.....But how to rid yourself of something that is soooo prolific? What is the weed of your life?
I am praising YOU for being the gardener....for lovingly landscaping our lives to YOUR PURPOSE.....
