get rid of the root…..

Standard

So yard work isn’t really my thing, but it has to be done, so….there I am weeding a planter and I keep ripping the weed, not getting to the root. Trying hard not get frustrated, I just asked the Lord, “do you have any wisdom to share on weeding effectively?” He simply said, “Grab as low as you can and wiggle a little and it will loosen the root and come right out.” Knowing I did not previously know this, I knew it was Him, I did it and instantly the roots were loosening and the whole thing came out. That got me thinking about how I could have trusted in my own understanding and done all of that weeding and in a week it would have all grown right back. But by asking Him for wisdom, He showed me with just a little extra effort and time,getting a little messier,  the roots would slide out, permanently removing that weed …..this is true for a lot in life. Ask Him for a strategy and be willing to put in the extra effort, allow it to get messy,  and the root system of that thing you have been trying to get rid of in your life for so long, but it kept coming right back, is going to be gone for good. Maybe it’s time to plant some flowers, to replace weeds with something beautiful! You are something Beautiful!

  1. Wonderful post! It is amazing how much time we can waste striving and doing things on our own in our own way. He wants us to seek Him for everything. May we all learn from your weeding analogy and turn to the Lord so He can help us get the roots out so His plans and desires can flourish in our lives.
