Heart Preparation

In my devotion time this morning, God laid the word preparation on my heart. As I meditated on this word the thought of preparing my heart for Christ's soon return filled my mind.

God formed Adam from the dust of the ground. I imagined a plot of soil read to be tilled for gardening. As the soil must be prepared before planting seeds, so must my heart be prepared to receive Christ.

Proverbs 16:1 says "The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the Lord

It is God that prepares my heart to plant in it the fruits of the Spirit. As I spend time with Him, He waters and shines His Light and breathes His air upon me that I may grow. As I grow and mature, I bear fruit and those who come in contact with me know that I have been nurtured by the Master Gardner because of the fragrant fruit that I bear.


  1. What an encouragement. Thanks for sharing those moments God spoke to you!

  2. So many inspiring lessons in the garden of life.
