The Garden of Her Heart

The Garden of Her Heart

********************************

Before He opened the gate

to the garden of her heart

it was overgrown with brambles

that had won the greater part

~

Once she’d given Him permission

the restoration had begun

until the flowers became the focus

under the gentle springtime Sun

~

In the fire branches were thrown

and their ashes used for good

until the borders bloomed glorious

as the Gardener knew they would.

I wrote this poem out of thanksgiving

for what God can do ย in a heart.

There are places that I do not like to go anymore–

places with brambles that choke out joy and peace.

ย  I know that some things are not lovely, pure and of good report.

The garden of my heart is tended by a loving and faithful Gardener.

I know that He cares for me too much

to allow invasive weeds to choke out our favorite flowers.

His plans are always for good so that I will be blessed

and his glory will be revealed.

Blessed be the name of the Lord!

PS – My novel draft is over 55,000 words now.

The last two weeks of writing were more challenging

as my confidence waned.

But I have been reading about other writers who have succeeded.

They, too, were often riddled with doubt–

they kept writing anyways.

That’s what I’m doing; I’m writing anyways.

My determination is waxing.

If you have a dream,

keep dreamingย 

and doing.
