What is growing in the garden of your life?

By Sandra Lee Herron, Crystal Cathedral Pastor

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition,

with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends

all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally,

brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever

is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or

praiseworthy – think about such things.”

-Philippians 4:6-8

Spring is the time for new growth. Trees bud, flowers bloom, and birds sing their

lovely songs again.

How about you? What is growing in the garden of your life? Good friends? Beautiful

prayers? Breathtaking life experiences? Lovely flowers? Fruit? Vegetables? Pretty

shrubs? Weeds growing out of control here, there, and everywhere? Whatever remains

in your garden is your responsibility.

Perhaps there are flowers growing in your garden that are a surprise. You did not

plant them. Perhaps they flew into your garden from somebody else’s planting. If

you like them, let them be.

Weeds also ride the wind into the garden of life and grow there. Perhaps the weeds

came from your grandparent’s garden, your parent’s garden, or a friend’s garden.

Weeds come in the form of persistent frustration and disappointment, poor relationships,

wild and non-productive growth, and separation from God. Flowers need care, just

as friendships do, but weeds grow even when neglected. In any case, you get to

choose whether the weeds stay or not.

Spring is an invitation to pull out the weeds and overgrowth of negativity from

our lives and concentrate on the beauty of new growth.

Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for the new life you’ve given me through the sacrifice

of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Devotion: What is growing in the garden of your life?

May GOD bless Nigeria, America and Israel and take care of us; May GOD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the LORD lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

May the grace the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen!
