Isaiah 58:10: “If you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday.”
With The GARDENER’s Heart!
What’s a three petaled rose or a daisy with four? Two options in view which some deem — incomplete.
What of Cars with two tires versus one legged stools? These off-casts are also. On such, few depend!
Misaligned to be certain, but real just the same. “Amputated”, cut short
and maligned. Yet…alive!
Thus feel those around us — perceived as “less thans“, by themselves while IN church, yet near those seeing clearly.
As such, protect those whose hearts need confirmation, embracing each “three petaled rose”!
As HIServant caring for HIS WORD and each soul without filters,
Devotional: Luke 12:27 “Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.”
Matthew 10:8: “Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.”
What rose is fully in bloom with three petals? None! Nor do we review such sights as “acceptable”, let alone, “Beautiful “.
No car operates well on two wheels nor does anyone pick a stool with just one leg…to stand on.
Isaiah 16:3 “Give counsel; grant justice; make your shade like night at the height of noon; shelter the outcasts; do not reveal the fugitive…”
But these “incompletes” come to our churches full of “complete” flowers and rather than being acknowledged as just as worthy as the other “flowers”…
…they’re often treated as “visitors” — not “fellow or sister” members of GOD’s garden.
Galatians 6:9: “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.”
So thank we the LORD as our MASTER who cares for HIS own garden;
….WHO sees and tends to the heart and soul of every flower HE created.
Thank YOU, FATHER…for giving us YOUR heart to lovingly nurture those who feel unwatered, unfed and uncared for this day.
John 20:15 JESUS said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?”
She, supposing HIM to be the gardener, said to HIM, “Sir, if you have carried HIM away, tell me where you have laid HIM, and I will take HIM away.”
YOU are our Righteous KING and attentive GARDENER, LORD JESUS! How great is YOUR NAME; how we long for YOUR touch!
So we give YOU all praise being made equally beautiful in YOUR sight…through CHRIST. Use us, LORD!
Amen and amen!
