The Earth

The earth is rich with nutrients
Seeds planted in the soil burst forth with goodness
Green shoots soon will bear fruit

The root word of humility is humus
Humus is the good earth

When we allow God to make us humble
Our hearts become fertile soil for God's word to take root

His word brings forth a harvest

Practicing His Presence

Here is something I believe the Lord spoke to me today.  I believe it will encourage you to practice His presence.

Tom, keep me in the center of your heart, the object of your focus. Pray to me throughout the day. Practice my presence. Develop a more keen ear to hear my voice. Watch for my vision – those inspired pictures that come to mind, that tell a story. I want you to be Spirit led. So draw near to me. Even in the middle of your busy days you can draw near to me. Value your time with me as the most important part of your day. It is the river that overflows into every area of your life. I will cause your life to spring up like the fresh flowers in spring. That which lay dormant in the winter seasons of your life will take root and grow yielding a tremendous harvest. Come to Me My son. Come to Me. I am with you.
