Good day all. I hope this finding everyone doing well. I am doing OK but still having some issues. As I started my day however, I began to feel myself becoming overwhelmed with some sorrow and fullness. As I began to see and feel all what was happening, God placed this blog upon my heart. I ask you to think about this question as you read. When you are have a day that seems or is overwhelming, what is it that you do? 1) Do you have a melt down and let Satan put forth the confusion that he does OR 2) Do you stop, pray, and go to God’s garden?
Each day we get up there are many who dread to see the day start because of all that takes place throughout the day. We do not see the good things (or should I say we very seldom see it) taking place. The bad "karma” or problems tend to happen more thus this is what most people tend to take forth. We take the overwhelming feeling throughout the day and thus we end up having a bad day or overwhelming situations. How though do we turn these problems around? How do overcome the overwhelming issues of this life? The answer is very easy….Spend some time in God’s garden.
We are told that Christ has gone through every issue each of us has gone through. As I prayed about this and was feeling overwhelmed today, I realized this was true. The book of Matthew puts it very clear that this happen. Matthew is writing to tell us of Christ life and how he is fulfilling the promises of the Old Testament. In the twenty-sixth chapter of Matthew,
we are shown that Christ is becoming overwhelmed, sorrowful, and troubled . He goes to the garden of Gethsemane where He fell to the ground and prayed the following:
39- "My father if it is possible, may this cup
be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but
as you will.”
We can see here that Christ was overwhelmed and truly burdened with dying for us. He returned only to see once again the disciples sleeping. He reminded His disciples to stay in prayer so that they would not fall into temptation as the spirit was willing BUT the flesh was weak. He would then go back to praying the following:
42- "My father, if it is not possible for this
cup to be taken away unless I drink
it, may your will be done.”
As you can see when Christ became overwhelmed, He returned to the Garden of His father. He would rely upon His Father to pluck, prune, and de-weed Him…preparing Him to do God’s will. We therefore need to follow this example. For when we become overwhelmed with the things of this life, we need to return to the garden, just as Christ returned, to do exactly what it is that God wants from us.
Therefore I ask you, when the troubles of this world and problems arise and you become overwhelmed, are you going to have a total melt down and let Satan win OR are you going to stop and go to the garden of God just as Christ did? Myself, I would much rather visit God’s garden and let Him handle it.
Remember if you are interested in having me speak at your church, school, group, or organization or you would like to retain a copy of the book, all information can be retained from the front of this website.
God Bless and Keep you-
