During the month of April the chilly winds of winter fade and the long nights give way to longer days. It is also a time when we begin to think of and make preparations for planting. There is a process that is followed that takes us from tilling the soil to harvest.

The first thing one must do is prepare the soil. When we till the soil, we break through the hard surface. Let each ask, “What has hardened my heart? What clumps block the way when I try to open my heart to Jesus?”

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” (Romans 12:1 – 2 NKJV).

We ask the Holy Spirit to be with us as we dig deeper into the place where our relationship with Jesus grows.
