The weather has been wonderful.
I usually am a skeptic with Spring. I’m not one of those where if we get a week of 60’s I automatically think “SPRING IS COMING”…I usually think “great, what a tease”.
But today, I honestly feel like Spring is coming. I just sense it. Will we get some colder days? Probably. But slowly and surely Spring will come.
This is going to be the best Spring yet for me.
I’m not only excited for this coming season, but I am prepared, ready, and determined.
Most years I have a plan. I have seeds started. I have a garden design. But my confidence is low. I’m always afraid to acknowledge my potential because to be honest I’m always afraid I’ll fail.
Not this year.
I’m expectant this year and ready.
Recently my husband and I have been determined and praying in detail about purchasing a farm and land. We have yet to feel God’s “Go Ahead” but we know it’s only a matter of time, and that we need to continue to be patient and wait on him.
One of the MAJOR things I was having a hard time contemplating and deciding was how I would even incorporate God into our garden/produce/herbal/flower business.
I have been praying and wrestling with it awhile. The other day, I finally felt like I knew what God wanted, and so I will share it with you all, as it changes my business plan and ideas slightly.
“This Farm and Business will not be for my own fleshly desires, but because I believe God calls us to be good steards of our Earth. God wants me to show people the beauty in growing something yourself; to rely on nature and God’s plan for food. He also wants me to show people his beauty in the blooming flower and how joyous it feels to be in the dirt and get back to the basics. Whether this is in healing/medicinal practices, food or general DIY home needs.”
This is essentially what I have always wanted to portray to people, but I had a hard time committing the the “God” aspect of it.
What I’m learning though is that I can do NOTHING without Christ. (John 15:5)
I don’t know if this will change but the verse for my business at this time will be this…
“Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:58
