I was watering dirt. No weeds. No struggling garden plant. Just dirt. But this dirt, Mom assured me, contained seeds. Seeds that would with water, sun, and God’s blessing, sprout and yield a harvest.
Sometimes, I feel like God is watering dirt and asking me to do the same. I get angry because there is nothing there! I’m watering dry, dusty ground. I see no plants benefiting from His work. But God knows exactly where the seeds are hidden. And with tender love and God’s Spirit, those seeds will bloom and yield a harvest.
If we keep watering them.
“Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me as the Scripture has said, our of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” – John 7:37-38
Come with me as we grow in fellowship with each other and our Savior to whom belongs the Amazing Escape from sin and death and the Amazing Journey into glorious life.
