weeds in my garden







After digging in the dirt and pulling weeds and a lot of sweating, our garden looks pretty good.  I've always enjoyed beautiful flower beds and the wonderful smell of flowers in bloom....but, it's a love hate relationship!  What I do not enjoy is dirt under my fingernails, rough hands and an achy back.  It is very difficult to have one without the other.


Walking with Jesus and being His disciple is like that.  Constant work and tending to, trying to keep the flowers in bloom and the weeds out.  Weeds like anger, jealousy, laziness, deceiving myself, and planting instead good things like love, joy, peace, and practicing longsuffering toward everyone, and
praising God with thanksgiving.
It is so worth the effort!  Watching God bless your work, tenderly watering and shining down on your
life and your loved ones.
Do not faint under the pressure dear one.  Keep up the good fight, don't quit, don't give in, the rewards far out way the struggle.


Galatians 6:5
For every man shall bear his own burden.
Galatians 6:6
Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.
Galatians 6:7
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
Galatians 6:8
For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
Galatians 6:9
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
 (KJV)

Mandisa - Overcomer (Lyric Video)

Calm down about things that don't matter,

Picking your battles wisely is a life quality that everyone should adopt. Ask your self:      why does this bother me      what will happen if I don't respond      will my opinion change the outcome      can I find a positive way to express the way this makes me I feel       When serious things do happen (and they will) over the top responses will only serve to hurt you mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, and  you will alienate people after time........... Discipline your thought life!   Don't allow every minor irritation make you irrational! Try focusing on  the positive and meditating on the blessings of God and watch the small problems fade from sight......... Philipians 4:8 Finally, brethren.....whatsoever things that are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
