Are you a thorn in The Kings crown?
Still others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word; but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful. Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop—some thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times what was sown.” (Mark 4:18-20 NIV)
“I am a thorn in your crown”
Pluck the undesirable thoughts, actions, deeds Prune away evil, distrust, jealousy Plant within Delight, Love, Grace Water continuously with Mercy & Forgiveness.
Father, You have provided a garden for me. This garden is not a visible one but rather one that You have provided through Your word. Our bible the stories, teachings, and messages within holds the key to our perfect garden. We are called to keep the weeds out, our sin, doubts, evil thoughts or deeds. Replace these with the truth of Your unending, unconditional love for us.
Pray, read, study, meditate, fellowship. These are all our tools for keeping our garden lush, green, vibrant with life & beauty! You gave Your one and only Son for us, he bore a shameful, painful, crown of thorns for us. For me! Jesus saw my sin, knew what was going to happen & still chose to go through with it because he loves me. Me, a sinner! Me, a thorn in his crown! Thank you Abba father for Your daily dose of love. My choice is to choose to accept that love every day, pluck, prune, plant, water my garden each & every day until You call me home!
