Do you feel tired, burned out, wilted, faded, thirsty, weary?
I (unfortunately) neglected my garden yesterday – not good in this Southeast Louisiana 100 degree heat! This morning, as I went out in the yard to tend to my plants, I thought that they look how I often feel – when I don’t give God the time He asks of me. When I neglect Him, or take my relationship with Him for granted, I easily get withered, worn out, tired, thirsty – thirsty for the peace that the world cannot give.
Here’s the same bee balm plant, only 15 minutes after watering.Amazing, huh?! Full of life – totally refreshed in only 15 minutes. God works in much the same way. He has so much good stuff to give us, but He’s not going to force it on us. Fifteen minutes in silence – talking with Him… then listening. If fifteen can work wonders, can you imagine what 30 or 45 minutes could do? It’s something to work towards:)
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
