What is your favorite summer activity?

Did anyone say weeding their garden? I very much like to weed.

So I thought until the other day, 7 hours later, you could finally begin to see rows in our garden.

As I pulled weeds, hoed the roots, sifted the dirt, I began to see healthy pea plants, cucumbers, and carrots.

I had neglected it way too long.

As I worked, I could not help but think about my life as a believer in Jesus Christ.

You see, my garden isn’t in my yard, so it’s out of sight

so I don’t think about it daily.

Kind of like my Bible being left in the vehicle all week, and I don’t think about it until the following Sunday.

Or, the fact, I would rather sleep in than have early morning time with God.

I sigh, the summer is short, so I can skip Sunday worship time,

there’s so much work to get done during this season or so few weekends to have fun.

Whatever reasons I may have, pretty soon, my life resembles the unattended garden.

Anxious, worried, angry, complaining, and ungrateful to list a few.

Matthew 6:21

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be.

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be.

God speaks most clearly to us through his word.

The more you practice it, the more you will come to need it.

2 Peter 1:5-8

In view of all this, make every effort to respond to God’s promises.

Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge,

and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance,

and patient endurance with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection,

and brotherly affection with love for everyone.

When we are in the word the Lord will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry

and restoring your strength.

Let’s take the time to clean out the weeds; it will be well worth your soul.

Until next time, Pam.
