Come To The Garden

Wow!  I know I've read this verse before, but it did not sink in until today.  Here is the full context,   "And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought,
and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, 
and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not."  Isaiah 58:11

There are definitely times when we feel dry and parched and somewhat withered.  Whether it is in serving others, our family or the Lord.  Feeling as though we cannot meet one more demand, come up with one more fresh idea or be a vessel for service one more time.  

But oh, the refreshing that is found in the verse above!   God will guide us and lead us in those times of drought...he will enrich our bones and fill us with water.  Oh, thank you, Lord.  You are so faithful.

Although man was banned from His first perfect garden, He still brings us into the garden of His refreshing.   When we seek to be in His garden we are refreshed by the watering of His word (Ephesians 5:26), which fails not.  

Dear friends, I pray you come to His garden today and be renewed!

Illustration Note:  This is a watercolor painting of my granddaughters last summer.  It was a moment when your heart takes a picture!  They were drenched by the time we'd planted the flowers.  I know I've shared this pic before, but it seemed appropriate for this scripture.
