Time Well Spent

Time spent with God,

Is time well spent in deed.

It is time spent in the garden,

It is watering each seed.

 

He is the water of life.

He is the only way.

Time spent with Him,

Is the way to start the day.

 

He will supply the food.

Time will cause the roots to grow.

It takes time and patience,

It takes a spade and hoe.

 

You have to dig deep,

To understand the Word.

You have to take out weeds,

To make room for the Lord.

 

Time spent with God,

Is time well spent in deed.

It is time spent in the garden,

It is watering each seed.

 

He will shelter you in storms.

He will become your light.

He will help you grow strong,

Through the darkness of night.

 

The harvest will finally come.

It will be well worth the wait,

To be able to enter His garden,

Beyond the pearly gate.

James 5:7 

 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.

Galatians 6:9 

 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

 

The Bible frequently speaks of the harvest. We know that we have to wait for the harvest and we know that gardening takes attention and work. A garden will not thrive unless someone takes care of it. Ground needs to be prepared and seed needs to be planted.  The garden needs sunshine and rain. A garden will be ruined if weeds are allowed to grow that will take away the nourishment that the plants need. Some weeds actually choke the life out of the crop. Sometimes the weeds get so thick and plentiful, that the seed that was planted withers and dies. This is the perfect story about our Christian life. The time we spend with God in the garden of our soul is important so that we will be watered and fed with His grace and love. The time we spend in this perfect environment will cause us to thrive as a Christian. We will become stronger with every gardening session with God.  A good strong crop will more likey produce good strong seed which will be able to sustain in this world.
