I planted the seed, Apollos watered the plants, but God made you grow. It’s not the one who plants or the one who waters who is at the center of this process but God, who makes things grow. Planting and watering are menial servant jobs at minimum wages. What makes them worth doing is the God we are serving. You happen to be God’s field in which we are working.

1 Corinthians 3:6-9 MSG

We have this place that allows us to be free. We are free to dance and sing and play children’s games. We can run and laugh with joy. None of life’s burdens are allowed to enter this place. We can relax and know that all is well because we are in the Garden of Mercy and Jubilation.

Recovery in Christ is like a lush garden. When we first enter this garden, we’ve forgotten how to play. Some of us never knew how to play. We see others who have dropped their heavy baggage and are now running free. Like children, they play without the bondage of wearing masks or wondering what others are thinking about them. Free people are free to love with abandon.

This is our garden. What grows here is miraculous. We learn how to plant the seeds of love, hope, and freedom. Christ, then sparks life in all the seeds that have been planted. Streams of living water nourish our gardens and the outcroppings grow and spread. Our garden is recovery. We tend to our garden and it brings forth much fruit. Our garden is an oasis of love in a desert of brokenness.

Lord Jesus, please plant good seeds in my heart so that they will bear fruit for You. Teach me to be a good gardener. Let Your garden grow in abundance and it’s fruit be overflowing.  Help me to be a wise and patient gardener. Amen.
