Have a Little Talk with Jesus

My husband says I talk alot. I beg to differ.

I love love love to mow grass. I love the smell of freshly cut grass, but mostly I love to have therapy time with Jesus. He listens and I talk. I pray and he always answers in his time. The sessions are free and very rewarding. I ask for a lot of help and ask him not to give up on me. I tell him often that I'm turning this one over to you . I can't seem to learn that I never solve things alone...but I'm getting better at remembering that. When I let HIM be in control, it always gets worked out and for the better.
I had a great session tonight. I do worry sometimes that people driving or walking by might see what appears to be me "talking" to myself. I tend to have many emotions on my face and maybe some body language that could be perplexing to them.

I really hope the John Deere doesn't quit on me....I need those quiet and helpful times....

but even if it does....

Jesus won't.

Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

When I get world weary ~ a long talk with Jesus always leaves me calm and feeling hopeful. It is encouraging to know he is always there, never quitting or giving up on me and always ready to listen no matter how much I talk. I pray you will have many oportunities to mow your lawn this summer. :)

Hey Tanya...I found my way over here through Farming On Faith. I love this post!!! I too love to mow the grass and talk to Jesus. I live in the midwest so I haven't been able to mow yet, but the weeds are growing like I have been pulling like crazy, it's almost the same. Almost! Have a great day. ~Nancy~
