...Jesus led me to a place that I could only see by the light of His presence. It appeared to be an untamed garden surrounded by tall walls of crudely made charcoal bricks. A cold wind blew briskly, and I heard a sound of wailing. I recognized it as my own sobs and had flashbacks of memories of crying in showers and in a lonely bed. I wretchedly turned into Jesus' chest, and He folded His arms around me. He sighed and I instantly felt a new strength within me rise up. I wanted to cry at the sight of this neglected lot, but I seemed to understand that this garden represented me somehow.
"This place, My child, is your soul " He said with a smile...
Imagine, if you will, Jesus becoming real to you and He leads you into your troubled soul as a garden. He shows you the truth and lies rooted in the weeds of your fears, large stones of anger and bushes of rejection that have kept you from experiencing love of yourself and others, and Jesus Himself. And He wants you to be healed and delivered from the pain of your emotions of the past. Would you be willing?
