he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like a spring whose waters never fail.”
A few weeks ago Lila and I planted a garden. We planted sunflowers, three different colors of bell peppers, watermelon and tomatoes. I thought it would be a great thing for us to do together and decided to do it for a few reasons:
Right now I’m in a Bible study and we’re going through Lysa TerKeurst’s Ungluedstudy. It has been great for me to evaluate why I react the way I do. One of the important truths I’ve learned is imperfect progress. She says that if we give ourselves the grace to make imperfect progress, then we can make lasting changes in our lives. Sure, we’ll all fall off our routine, have a bad reaction or cheat on our diet from time to time because we aren’t perfect. We so often give up or vow that it’s not possible for us to change because we messed up.
