Book Excerpt # 18 "Homeowner"
God’s Holy Spirit within me transformed a spirit that was void of life into a true home. I want to provide a place for him to rest. He wants me to be at rest.
He brings the seeds for our garden that will grow his fruit: love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Galatians 5: 22-23a).
With his help, I can be vigilant to notice anything that will disturb our sacred soil. Thieves are ever ready to break in and rip out the seeds that have taken root and are growing. These weeds of sin, doubt, fear, and self-pity are only a few potential home-wreckers. They need to be thwarted so that the garden thrives.
Bouquets from our home can then be shared with others.
