The grass is not greener on the other side, but it is greener where you water it. Of course fake grass or grass that never wethered the storm looks nice and green, but when the storm comes, it will wither away. And well fake grass is just that, fake…
The grass is green where you tend to it, where you nourish it, and then and only then will your grass grow and become plush. God tells us he will never leave nor forsake us, he will never give us anything more than we can bear, yet we tend to crumble under the pressures of life and wilt away when the rain comes down hard. However, the rain is there to nourish the seeds planted, to provide sustainance to our dry grass, provide it the necessary nutirients so it can continue to grow and flourish.
We ask God for more, and when the storms come we blame him for forsaking us. He is a just God, who loves us more than we can imagine, he won’t leave us in the storm alone. He knows what our grass needs.
Don’t get discouraged by the conditions of another mans grass, for you dont know the sacrifices they had or the storms they weathered to obtain such landscape. Rather than focusing on their terrain, what can you do to nurture your own? How can you prepare your landscape for the next rainy season? Even the most manicured lawn didn’t start that way, it takes months of patient and dudiligence.
Properly manage and maintain your own grass, cut out the weeds, throw in some seeds, enrich it with the breath of life, and watch your grass grow strong and mighty, to withstand even the rainest of seasons. Watch how the seeds you have planted grow and produce far more than you can ever imagine.
