I prayed to overcome a feeling of hopelessness and God filled my mind with a garden. Join me in this garden of hope where our faithful Creator unshackles the mind, and renews the spirit.
~ As we wrestle with unbelief for a better day, we stumble upon a garden of hope. In this garden an array of flowers surround us with incomparable beauty, and an elevating bouquet. We feel the soft brush of virgin growth, and sense a fresh purity of life, as the flora around us wave upward toward their Maker.
The atmosphere tugs on our hearts and beckons for our participation. Compelled, we acknowledge the wonder. We remove our shoes and dance among trusted companions.
In this garden we enjoy the freedom to dig in rich soil. Here we unearth treasures of truth. In this garden we find the confidence to plant ourselves into the substance of God’s will.
Here we join with those who reach toward the heavens; we worship the Son, and we wait for the appointed time when He will send us a quenching rain.
The Bible tells us to, “Be joyful in hope”. In this garden, it is easy to do. ~
Romans 5:5 NLT And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.
