Pulling Weeds and Planting Seeds

Christian Author Writer The thought of doing any sort of weeding just makes me exhausted, but some weeding is necessary in order to maintain our spiritual and emotional well-being. Pulling weeds and planting seeds is the story of our lives. We are individual lots on which either weeds of negativity or the fruits of the spirit grow and flourish. Part of any journey toward spiritual growth involves recognizing that the power of change lies within ourselves. I cannot place blame on any other person for what I choose to do with my life or choose not to do with my life. That being said, my own life story has also shown that the people I surround myself with play a major role in supporting me in my desire to change, accepting the person that I am or dragging me back toward the person that I used to be, so weeding out certain negative people is a necessary task for spiritual growth.

This weeding process does not have to be a mean spirited ordeal, it can just be a transitioning to where you are spending more time in prayer or meditation and less time listening to the world and all the while, becoming aware of the people that you surround yourself with. If you as a person are in touch with your mind, body, and spirit, you will know from the feelings in your soul, the tension in your body and the thinking in your mind that the people that you surround yourself with are positive or negative influences in your life.

Pulling weeds and planting seeds is the story of our lives, so please have love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Galatians 5: 22-23) when you are choosing to plant the seeds of people that influence your life and remember to do the same, when you are choosing to pull the weeds of the negative people out of your life in order for your spiritual garden to grow.
