Man’s chief end is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever. –Westminster Catechism
I am delighted to announce the release of my brand new children’s book: The Garden In My Heart! In this fun and easy to understand story, children of all ages (and grownups, too) will learn how to go through the door of Jesus and through the gate of their imagination to walk with God in their very own garden.
We all know that God created a garden for Adam and Eve, a place where they could encounter Him face to face and know Him heart to heart. We also know that access to this place was lost at the fall, but that it was purchased back for us with the precious blood of the Lamb. Yeshua said, The Kingdom of God is within you (Luke 17:21, KJV). So, because of the cross and because of the blood, those who are born from above now have a garden right inside our hearts. In that intersection of heaven and earth, we can enjoy uninterrupted fellowship with our Father once again and can explore and enjoy those “many mansions” in His heart (John 14:2).
The Father once melted my heart with this beautiful invitation to walk with Him in my garden, and I know He is extending that same invitation to you today:
Do you know My pleasure as you come and explore and even play in the depths of My heart? Do you feel My yearning for you to walk in the garden with Me once again? Joy! Delight! Ecstasy is waiting for you inside of Me. No separation! The flower only withers when it is plucked from the vine. And so it is with you. Death only has dominion where you are separated from My flow of life. Come and abide and live forever. Come and defy the laws of this natural realm. Come and abide, so that ‘joy inexpressible and full of glory’ flows through you to overflowing – true joy and pure. Come and let us laugh together. Let us run and play.
I hope that you say “yes” to His invitation and that you share it with as many others as possible. It is intimacy with you that satisfies the longing of His heart!!!
