Victory over the stubborn sins

I went to to my allotment today; this is a piece of ground where I grow fruit and vegetables. Every year before the winter I have to clear all the weeds. One particular weed is called a Docking Leaf (this is its name in Scotland I don’t know what it is called anywhere else). The leaves show above the ground but it has very deep roots.

Sometimes the leaves come off and part of the root comes out the ground. You need to get the whole root out. I can get half the root out then rake the ground and it looks like it has been dealt with. In a few months it will reappear.

This is like my walk with Jesus the ground being my life, the docking leaf are my issues like fear, anxiety, anger, depression and self hatred. I can deal with some of these things and for a while things look fine; but I have only got part of the root out.

After a few months the same issues can reappear I can suddenly feel hopeless again, or fearful leading me back into hiding from people and Father God. I scream to myself  ‘but I thought that I had dealt with these things’. I can feel like I have never moved on back to square one.

I need to let Father God look  into my whole heart and deal with my people pleasing, my masks and my self hatred. Only this will get rid of the whole root.

Today Father I choose to let you closer to my heart than ever before.

Will you let him come closer to your heart today? Will you let him take all the root out today?

About cleavinghearts

I go to church in Troon Scotland. I want to see men from every nation rise up in Christ and be who they are called to be. I am interested in men getting together to praise and just do men's things. I also want to see women rise above their pain and turmoil so they are free to follow Jesus without the hindrances of their past.

  2. I try and let Jesus closer to my heart everyday. That way he can set me free in a deeper way. Thanks for your comment. Bless You. Richard

    This is good. I become some frustrated with reoccurring weeds. Just when I think I’m free, they grow again. I will begin to ask God to come closer to my heart to weed out all that is not like Him.
