My post today will be short and sweet because I have been under the weather all week.
I will likely be slow in getting around to my visits, depending on how I'm feeling, so please be patient with me!
When we become born again, God's Spirit comes to reside within us and we become His child.
He begins to change our hearts by planting us in His garden. He tends to us in that garden by pruning us and watering us with His Word. He is always with us because He is the Gardener, and He promises never to leave us.
In the beginning, we are like a tiny rosebud with our petals folded tightly together. But in time, with the care only the Gardener can give us, we open up into a beautiful full blown rose.
Once we are in full bloom, we ought to leave a sweet fragrance wherever we go. It is this sweet fragrance which brings glory to Him.
