I’m helping my friends with the landscaping of their yard. Since my husband is a contractor, we are able to buy plants wholesale. There are a couple of nurseries I like to use, but my son-in-law told me about one that’s a little further out than than the others. He encouraged me to go because they would have everything that we would need. As soon as we pulled into the office, we could see their beauty, and their abundance. I was overwhelmed with joy, and felt lavished in plant heaven; it was like the Disney World of nurseries! I had to contain myself, and step back to think about my friends needs for their yard rather than my own desires. I get excited all over again just thinking about it!
God knows what makes us joyful, but who would have thought that helping someone choose plants for their yard could bring on such an overwhelming since of pleasure. Sometimes we have do monotonous things just to survive our days, but instead of going through our days with a ho-hum attitude, begin looking for God’s hand guiding your steps. When you start to see it, you will begin love your moments.
And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
