Conversations In The Garden
When I pray for the Holy Spirit to go with me and imagine going into a beautiful garden, I always always find Jesus there. He is sitting on a bench or the ground, sometimes pruning vines or smelling flowers, walking on a path or recently sitting on a high rock overlooking all below. I usually have way too much on my mind, but he is patient. I often ask questions and He responds with love and guidance. Sometimes we just walk, or a word or two will be given to me. Other times I listen to Him speak at length. Often scriptures and devotionals come later that confirm what was said and I always write down our conversations in a special journal.
God never disappoints. He is always there, and even in silent times He is always loving. Recently I was reading a post at another blog and came across a statement that just came alive for me. She spoke of the garden of her heart, and I realized that this is where Jesus meets me......in the garden of my heart. How precious is that?!
I have decided to share bits and pieces that come to life for me during this special time with Jesus. Things I hope will inspire, encourage, and give you food for thought.
Meeting Jesus in the garden of my heart. I am so very blessed.
