Weedsnests And Promises (aug. 2011)
While tending the weedsnests of the yard today, I noticed the soil was so dry, it was nearly impossible to loose the hold those weeds had. It made me ponder on the weeds of my life!.
One thing I knew, that if I added water to the mix, it would soften the soil & the weeds would let go more easily and the burden would be lessoned.
As I watered, the sun beat down so hard. Heat... Hot... It was late August afterall. It didn't take long to realize that in my own hands was Release. Comfort. Soothing Spirit was within my own power to take.
As usual though, I held a thrashing resistance to the change. It's so different, the cleansing water. What a shock it would be. But, it looked good as I imagined its cool comfort on my skin... in connection with my blood, which runs through and sustains my heart! "Take that leap of faith", my spirit yelled
Then listening to the impassioned sway, I raised the hose in praise and in pleading.
The cooling comfort of His Loving embrace fell so freely. And for a moment, there was hope... and clarity, as I saw the fullness of His Covenant. My own RAINBOW in the mist from a simple garden hose.
Not just a Bow, but it was Brilliant and in FULL CIRCLE. A Full Frontal HUG FROM GOD!
The best part is that at the end... where the Pot of Gold would be.... Was ME!
