Come to my garden

MOORE — Your life is more than chaotic and that’s putting it mildly. You are pulled from every angle and no matter how hard you try, you just can’t keep up. I have the perfect answer to your situation. Come take a walk with me.

It isn’t very far and I promise when you are finished, you will be refreshed. Of course there are roses in my garden; every variety, every color that you can possibly imagine. As you inhale, peace washes over you and you are ready to walk further.

You can take my hand if you want to, but it isn’t necessary. You know I am right here with you. You are not alone. It’s nice to have this quiet time with you, time when you aren’t distracted by all the things you need to do. It’s just you and me. Believe it or not, I cherish this moment with you. I cherish the time we spend alone.

I enjoy hearing about your day. I know you are troubled and I know just taking the time to talk to me will ease your worries. Please, stay just a little longer and you’ll see.This is one of my favorite places to be: The Garden. I love to hear the birds singing, and the quiet just draws me closer to our Heavenly Father. The flowers are just a glimpse of the beauty you’ll see in heaven. Just imagine being surrounded by such beauty for all eternity.

First. I want you to tell me all of your troubles. You can’t possibly enjoy my garden unless you are free from care. I’ll take your burdens and we’ll leave them at the entrance. They have no place here.

Now, let my peace surround you. Feel my love and drink in the beauty of this special place. Let’s sit by the stream and listen to the water as it flows over the rocks. Close your eyes. You’ll feel the weight lift from your shoulders.

Stay as long as you’d like. I plan on being here forever. You can come and go as you please. Remember that this time is as special to me as it is to you. It’s something beautiful we share away from the hustles of life.

I’ll be looking for you.

Love, Jesus
