Jesus said, "I am the true vine, and my father is the gardener." (John 15:1)
We are part of God's vineyard. When we hurt, he embraces us with his love. No matter how wounded, distraught, or broken we may be, he has grace enough to fix our problems. He forgives our failures and strengthens our resolve. He patiently teaches us his ways. He fills our cup to overflowing with goodness and mercy. He never slumbers or sleeps. When we grow faint, he gives us strength. When we stumble and fall, he lifts us up. When we disappoint him, he understands. When we seek his guidance, he sends his Holy Spirit as our guide. When working for the kingdom, he hedges us about with his protection. Nothing takes place in our lives that he doesn't allow.
Isn't he a gardener we can trust?
