May your plantings flourish

May Jesus rain gently on the fields where you are planting the seeds of His Gospel, and may our Father provide healthy, sturdy growth in abundance. May His Holy Spirit sustain that growth, and may your harvest be plentiful.

May your heart drink deeply of His refreshing reign, and may your soul be flooded with warm, bright sunshine. May the windows of your heart glow with His radiant light, and may each soul that you teach fall completely in love with the God Who calls Himself “Love” … and may you fall in love with Him … completely … all over again.

May He touch your lips with sweet grace … and may His voice and yours be as one … as you share the Good News of Jesus Christ … the Son of God … with a world of souls who desperately need to hear the Good News that Jesus can give us each what we need the very most … forgiveness of our sins.

May all of your plantings flourish … may all of your harvests multiply … only in Him.


May our Father create in you a beautiful garden

May our Father … the Gardener … come to you in the cool of the day. May He see your potential … all that you can become … and may His vision of you become a reality. May He lovingly remove the weeds, the hardpan and the rubble. May He amend and cultivate the tired and weary soil of your heart … replacing the compaction and the lifeless clods with a generous infusion of His life-giving blessings … perfectly blended to create a holy and healthy plot of ground … pliable, workable and receptive to the seeds and seedlings that He has anticipated planting there.

May the roots of His planting sink deeply into the reaches of your heart … gathering every spiritual nourishment and the living water that so generously flows when the One Who first dreamed of gardens delights in tending yours. May His resources supply abundant growth to every plant … annual and perennial … large and small … that graces your humble borders.

May His strength be the rock that lies before you … deflecting the heavy rains and the hail. May His love surround your tender growth like a blanket … nurturing each growing talent and gift … and suppressing the germination of every unholy thought … every careless word … and every destructive deed. In His grace, may He skillfully and judiciously pinch and prune each wayward branch and every unruly stem … till they grow strong and hang heavy with abundant, sweet fruit.

May you brighten your little corner of the world and bring great joy to the One Who thought of you … designed you … and daily brings out the very best in you. May you finally understand your purpose. May you rejoice as you feel the value you’ve always dreamed of. May you find your esteem in His smile of satisfaction … His nod of approval … His continual care. May our Father create in you a beautiful garden … where a beautiful garden has never grown before.
