I'm getting Spring Fever or better described as the Garden Rash...I'm itching to get some seeds into the ground!
We've staked out our garden.
We've organized our seeds.
We've drawn out the plan.
But I still have to wait. It's hard to be patient when I'm ready to plant but the soil isn't yet prepared. Are you feeling this way too?
I've included many farmer themed Bible verses today to help me remember that I can't rush or control the gardening season.
"God is the One who gives seed to the farmer...And God will give you all the seed you need and make it grow." 2 Corinthians 9:10
"A farmer does not plow his field all the time...He prepares the ground. Then he plants the...seed." Isaiah 28:24-25
"A farmer is patient. He waits for his valuable crop to grow from the Earth." James 5:7
"The skies will send rain on your land at the right time." Deuteronomy 28:12
"The plants make seeds for the farmer. And from these seeds people have (food) to eat. The words I say do the same thing. They will not return to me empty. They make the things happen that I want to happen. They succeed in doing what I send them to do." Isaiah 55:10
"We are workers together for God. And you are like a farm that belongs to God." 1 Corinthians 3:9
Dear God, Thank You for providing the Earth and soil, sun and rain in preparation for sowing Your seeds. Bless the farmers and gardeners everywhere Lord as they prepare they soil, hearts and minds to sow seeds. Let us not forget the most important thing we need to sow, Your Word. Amen.
