Watering the Grass

You may have heard the expression, "the grass is always greener on the other side...." Well that's just a lie isn't it? In our sinful nature it is easy to always be looking over the fence, believing that there is something better. Then, sometimes in our haste and impatience we may jump the fence only to realize it's not all it's cracked up to be. In fact, the grass we were hanging out on before was much better.
There is an enemy who is in the business of false advertising to get our attention off of and away from the very blessing we have right under our nose.

The truth is, "the grass is always greener where it is being watered."
This week, if the enemy starts to feed you his line of bologna that says "what you have is not good enough" remember, Jesus is always better and He always takes care of His children even if it doesn't feel like it. Even if where you are today doesn't seem ideal, convenient, or even feel or look very green, remember, He is sovereign and Spring always follows winter. Hang in there friend. God has a plan. Keep praising God and watering your own lawn, taking care of what He has entrusted you with and in His timing, the brown, dead winter lawn will soon experience the bright hope of spring.

Even if it doesn't look the same as your neighbors, remember, it's yours and yours given by a Father that loves you dearly. Take some time to not only take care of what He has given you but also thank Him for always taking care of you and never abandoning you.
Have a great week!
