Weed Thoughts

Jeremiah 4:3 says, “…break up your fallow ground, and do not sow among thorns.”  We know what thorns do from Mark 4:19.  Thorns choke the word sown and make it unfruitful.  Thorns are the cares of this world, deceitfulness of riches, and the desire for other things.
I thought about my vetch weed that is taking over my front bed.  I pulled some of it out, but it multiplied.  It is an invasive weed.
Weed thoughts choke our meditation and make it unfruitful.
it is true – I have to keep putting other thoughts out of my mind when I meditate…especially in the middle of the night.  I want to think about OTHER THINGS because I am awake.
As we keep sowing His word in our hearts through meditation, it will increase our fruits of righteousness.  Our thoughts will line up with His thoughts.

  1. Me again, I just remembered the ‘other’ ? I had after reading your Weed Thoughts for today. I had seen the ‘pretty purple’ flowers that were coming up on the left side of your driveway as you drive in and wanted to know what they were. I was walking a few days ago and was picking some wild flowers along the side of the road and there were plants like that so I picked some. Somehow I thought of vetch, but didn’t know if that was what it was or not. Strange you would mention it in your post. Guess I never called vetch a weed exactly, as my dad would plant it for cow feed. 🙂 So are we talking about the same plant ? 🙂 If weeds are lavender – I like them….ha ha. love me
