Through the Lens of Worship - My First Post

I love gardening.  But, I hate weeding.
Yet weeding is necessary, and not just because the unwanted organisms are unsightly.  It is necessary because weeds act like parasites, depriving the plants of a garden from the vital water and nutrients in the ground.  They are killers.  Surely I am not the only one who has had a garden once beautiful with blossoms taken over by an invader like bermuda grass.

I love the idea that God is a gardener caring for me.  But I hate weeding.  Or to the point, I hate being weeded.  It is necessary.  It is necessary for me to be a vibrant spiritual being.  It is necessary that God should reach into my corrupt heart and dig out the invader: the invader who slowly but ever so surely depletes my sometimes weary soul.

Lord, teach me to love your careful weeding.  You are my gardener.  I am a branch in Your vine.
