You’re a gardener.

Ever think of yourself as a gardener?

– We “plant seeds” in people’s hearts by speaking life and by pointing people to Jesus through God’s word.
– Others might come alongside those people and “water those seeds” by encouraging them in the right way through action, etc.
– Then God actually makes these seeds grow.

1 Corinthians 3:6 (http://bit.ly/2lBDpyI)

When you feel like your words of hope/seeds are falling on deaf ears/infertile soil because there is no growth – just know that your planting or watering is not in vain. God will grow that seed in due time.

Ps. Remember to always carry those people in prayer! x


God’s proud of you.

I watched the baby I was babysitting take her very first steps. What a proud moment! Her steps were not perfect, she would fall every time she lost her balance. We would help her get up to try again – this sometimes took patience.

This made me think of how proud God must be of us! When we start using our gifts He’s given us, when we achieve or learn something new etc. Even when we fall down, He is the one that lifts us up. Even though we might feel disappointed, God is smiling because we’re growing up.

Through it all, God is patient.
1 Corinthians 13:4 (http://bit.ly/2LnwtQf)



In Luke 15 (http://bit.ly/2ND6Xre) we read a story about a sheep that goes missing.
Sometimes, you and I can be like that sheep. We go missing.
We stray away from God.

What does He do?
He comes and looks for us, of course!
I like this imagery: “And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home.”
When God finds us, like a Shepherd would carry a sheep on his shoulders, so God does the same with us.

Why not talk to Him while He “carries” you on His shoulders today.



In Psalm 139 (http://bit.ly/2EfiANJ) we get an idea that God thinks about us: “How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!”

You’re not a mistake!
You don’t irritate God.
He thinks of you. He is thinking of ways to show you His love daily.

Question is: Are you looking out for Him?

Max Lucado once wrote: “If God had a wallet, your photo would be in it.”
Face it, God is crazy about you.
Before you rush off today, why not thank Him.
And tell Him about how you love Him.
