Soil Soul


"God breathes life into dirt."


That wasn't the main point of the message this Sunday at church, but it is what I heard.
What I continue to hear.

"God breathes life into dirt."

I wrote about being a soil soul that God is making fertile for changes.
The Gardener requiring this dirt to rest, supplying me with Him the nutrients I require for His purpose.
I am content in the resting.
Content knowing He will plant  
In His Time.  

The Spirit is tilling these words into my soil heart, 
"God breathes life into dirt." 


And I embrace the mercy of the Gardener
who goes ahead of my humanity,
my questions
with  hope for my future,
"God breathes life into dirt."

And I think about the immeasurable love of God.
That Love reached into the very depths of the earth, 
formed man, 
and loves so immensely that we 
take the Creators breath away. 

I take God's breath away. 

You, 
His beloved, 
take God's breath away.

"God breathes life into dirt."

it's the waiting for "In His Time" that gets me.
i'm terribly impatient and try to breath my own self into my dirt.

doesn't work.

i need to get content in the resting.
oh my soul. be content.

love you.
and thank you for another kick in the pants.

Beautiful. Thank you for the reminder.

My brother calls us "mudballs" - and often reminds how much God loves us!

Blessings to you!
