The other morning, I lost track of time while pruning my plants. Each time I thought I was done clipping the dead parts away from some of my plants, I realized there was still more work to be done. As I clipped away, I realized that I was very clear on my Earthly assignment. God sent me here to be a gardener.
Yep, that’s right. I am a gardener. Now, I may or may not be adding it to my bio, but let me break it down.
In Genesis 2:15, God gives Adam the task of tending to the garden. Adams’s only job was to care for and nurture the land. In other words, he was to work from the ground up. You see, I am convinced that most people lose in life because they are afraid to get down in the dirt to build from the ground up.
Gardening is time-consuming. It requires your undivided attention, your patience, and, a keen sense of detail. It’s work, but the beauty of the garden is worth your effort.
What would happen if you got serious about your first assignment? What if you nurtured and watered your garden; not someone else’s. Imagine what you could see. Imagine who you could become.
