Ponds of Love
Soul Snack 7/13 ... Ponds of Love
God is the master landscape gardener. Across His garden of heaven are scattered countless glistening ponds. They are the composition of His garden, around which God has planted His foliage.
Into one pond God has abandoned my:
- flights of fancy,
- hurtful speech,
- vile thoughts,
- pride of knowledge,
- arrogance of position,
- lusts of the flesh,
- greed of the soul and my
- lethargy of spirit. (This list could be much longer.)
All this (and more that I may never realize) He has drowned in the life giving water of His Holy Spirit -- the water in His ponds.
He has immersed me too in his Ponds of Love and bathed me in His cleansing holy and living Spirit.
Heaven's garden is complete in ponds because He has a Pond of Love for everyone who can call Him Father and will bend the knee to Him as Lord.
There is a Pond of Love there for you too -- enjoy the swim today!
But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God's unfailing love for ever and ever. (Ps 52:8)
