Gardens don't grow on accident.

Gardens don’t grow by accident. When you are in a season of spiritual “meh…”, the analogy from Hosea 10:12-13 may be a helpful guide to help you get unstuck. Like unplowed soil, the hard patches of your soul may need to be tilled and broken up so that you can receive the abundant shower of God’s righteousness and grace. This passage teaches the important lesson that when it comes to getting right with God, God’s grace is not the only player at work. You also play an important role. This passage looks you square in the eye and says, “It’s time. It’s time to take responsibility for your soul.” And when you put in the hard work, the reward is great. So may you break up the fallow ground of your soul, because it’s time to seek him, and he wants to shower righteousness on you.
