10/8 To ‘Relinquish’ is a process

toomuch2We spend another post on the first stage of waking with the true Lord Jesus.  Recently It’s Spring in my part of the world, in Australia.  For those of us who do any gardening.  Spring means what?  Ohhoooo – weeds….over grown patches where the winter cold has let its mark.  Patches where once flowers bloomed and bushes thrived.  Wind and cold keep us indoors but now … warm sunshine.

Our life is much like a garden, especially when we think about inner growth and new freedom in Christ.  Old ways of doing things, of handling problems in our own self-effort become clear in the light of a new Spring.  Tangled vines, dead mind-sets, crumpled paths … and sometimes broken tree branches block our view.  We could go on and on but I’m sure you get the picture by now, even if you’re not a gardener.
