In The Garden

One of the things I have loved so much these days is walking through a beautiful garden.

Have you noticed how a garden seems to just beckon you to slow down and notice the beauty of God’s creation? The green of the plants helps you appreciate the newness of life in their growth. And all the different colors in flowers make you stop in awe and wonder at the handiwork of the Lord.

I recently spent some time in a beautiful garden at a home in southern California. And of course I had my camera out capturing many different images.

I couldn’t help but think about those first days for Adam and Eve in the garden where God was walking in the cool of the day (Genesis 3:8). And then that eventful day God confronted them with their sin. And oh, how thankful I am for the forgiveness and eternal life now made possible because of Jesus’ death and resurrection (John 3:16, Ephesians 2:8-9).

And now, we can walk with the Lord every day in a beautiful new garden — the garden of grace. Peter encouraged believers about this new beautiful garden —

Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
2 Peter 3:18

Grace is this wonderful new garden — an environment of beauty and joy where you are accepted in the Beloved, your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

So dear friend, today will you bask in the beauty and wonder of your Lord and Savior, and grow in His grace and in intimacy with Him. And experience His joy and love every day of your life as you walk with Him in the garden of grace.

God bless you, dear friend, as you continue on in the great adventure of knowing Him.

♥ Blessings and Grace to You!
