In the Garden

It was complete. It was finished. Two gardens. One purpose. It was good.

"Faith, Featured"

As we contemplate the Easter story this year, I found myself drawn to a detail I hadn't noticed before. A detail that reveals more of God's nature in his perfect, perfect plan. All throughout scripture, we see examples of God revealing signs to his people of the love he has for them, and his plan for redemption. And this detail that I noticed this week is centered around God's completion and perfect timing....the very last words Jesus spoke before his death. "It is finished."

All the negative self-talk about failure and qualifications. ALL the fears of being judged. How do you start? With itty-bitty steps. One positive thought at a time. Let that dream in your heart slowly creep out of the cracks in your droughty soul. That dream... the one that was put there with a fullness you can't explain. Pour a little more hope on that thought that you keep going back to. Soon enough, a tiny stem will push up, out, and away from the dark. Birthed upwards, towards the brilliant light of faith. Drip, drop. That little stem will…
