1 Corinthians 3:9 - ...You are the vineyard, the garden, the house where God dwells.
One thing that I have learned from gardening is that certain plants do better depending on the season. No gardener would continue to plant a certain crop just because it did well in one particular season. A good gardener knows what to plant in spring, summer, fall and winter.
We are now God’s garden that He tends to lovingly. As we allow the good gardener to cultivate the soil of our soul, we will find healing and wholeness. Our good gardener heals our heart and remove the weeds of fear and doubt by the roots.
As our heart is transformed, our Gardener will plant new seeds of dreams and purpose. As God’s seasons for us change, so will the desires of our hearts. As we let go of the old and embrace the new, we will find new open doors of opportunity.
If we try to stay in an old season because it was good, we will find that we become frustrated and bitter. Holding onto the past simply paralyzes our present and sabotages our future. As we let go and let God do something new, we can take steps of faith into new places. As we receive the grace for the season, we will find that we grow, develop, flourish and thrive.
