Abiding {Day 2} The Garden of God’s Heart

Used with permission.

Today I wanted to share with you a painting that my best girlfriend gave to me not too long ago.  Yes, she painted this. Isn’t it amazing?  The first time I saw it, I nearly cried.  It reminds me of the garden of God’s heart, and how He draws us there to commune with us.  He longs to spend time with us, to share the secrets of His heart with us.

This is where I want to abide, in the garden of God’s heart.  This is the place where I must learn to go.  I want to stay in this place, to remain in His garden.  I never want to leave.  I long to abide there, in the garden of God’s heart.

Will you come with me?  Let us abide together in His garden.

I hope that this painting will bless you as much as it does me.

    It is beautiful. 🙂 And I am sure that being painted by a dear friend makes it even more of a treasure. I actually have a painting of trees along a pathway hanging in my room that was painted by one of my dearest friends. How very much it means to me! How thankful I am that He not only blesses us with His own love, He also gives us sweet friends to share this walk with. 🙂
