The Master Gardener

The Master Gardener
Tenderly encouraging
each shoot to bloom,
 to bear fruit,
to be beautiful in all its
natural glory.
I am but a flower in your garden
Oh, Lord
Cause me to bloom as I still myself
under your tender, loving care.

I asked the Lord...

I ask the Father in his great glory to give you the power to be strong inwardly through his Spirit. I pray that Christ will live in your hearts by faith and that your life will be strong in love and be built on love. And I pray that you and all God's holy people will have the power to understand the greatness of Christ's love—how wide and how long and how high and how deep that love is. Christ's love is greater than anyone can ever know, but I pray that you will be able to know that love. Then you can be filled with the fullness of God.
Ephesians 3:16-19 NCV
