    The Constant Gardener

    “Now the Lord God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed.  The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.” – Genesis 2:8-9 One of the oldest professions in the world is Gardening.  Without gardening we wouldn’t have the beautiful flowers and plants to grace our living space with, and perhaps farmers wouldn’t know how to grow crops.  The Garden of Eden was created…

    The Human Spirit

    “This is true because, being made in God’s image, we are not human beings having an occasional spiritual experience; rather we are spiritual beings having a temporary human experience.” – Steven Sjogren (Excerpt from, “The Day I Died.”) We sometimes forget that we are only part human, and our flesh is mortal.  God is talked about as a triune being; therefore, if man is made in God’s image, we are also triune; yet we are one person.  Man, is made up of three different parts – Spirit, Soul and Body.  To live we have to take care of our physical man, our spiritual man, and our soul.  Too often we…

    The Good Part

    ” Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” – Hebrews 12:2 God came to the earth robed in flesh because He saw the Joy that was lacking in our lives, and saw a way to fix it.  That Joy comes from knowing and having a relationship with God.  Sin had caused division and separation; however, Jesus created the bridge back to God. This life can cause us so much anxiety, and stress.  One in three people has a mental illness,…

    Go Ahead And Ask

    “Gideon said to God, “If you will save Israel by my hand as you have promised— look, I will place a wool fleece on the threshing floor. If there is dew only on the fleece and all the ground is dry, then I will know that you will save Israel by my hand, as you said.” And that is what happened. Gideon rose early the next day; he squeezed the fleece and wrung out the dew—a bowlful of water.”  Judges 6:36-38  Gideon wondered why all sorts of bad things were happening in his life.  Much like we often ask the question in this world today, as to why God would…

    Transcendent Love

    On this planet we all long for love, love that can transcend the dimensions of time and space; quite a phenomenon.  God’s love goes beyond all physical laws, and is completely unconditional.  Here on earth we operate on time and all things relative.  We live by our emotions, which can be fleeting like the wind.  God loves beyond all things, He goes deeper. “And to know this love that surpasses knowledge–that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”  – Ephesians 3:19 God’s love is the only thing that can transcend time and space.  God doesn’t operate on time, like we do here on earth.  The…
