GOD MADE DIRT . . . DIRT DON'T HURT

Good morning, my sisters in Christ Jesus!  I pray that you are all blessed and highly favored of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
 
How many of you remember that saying, "God made dirt, dirt don't hurt".  We would say that phrase when you drop something edible on the ground.  You pick it up and quickly say, "God made dirt, dirt don't hurt".  Then like something really magical just happened, we eat whatever it was that was dropped on the ground.  Well, today, God is going to give us a "dirt don't hurt", message.  What the Holy Spirit is going to do with today's message is to give you a new name and that name is, SEED.  To be able to receive this message, you are going to have to put on your spiritual caps and follow the lead of the Holy Spirit.
 
Ok, your name is SEED, so keep that in mind.  The moment that you decided to accept our Lord, Jesus Christ to come into your heart, you became an heir to Him.  The moment that you became a daughter of the Lord, He dug a hole and covered you with dirt so that you would grow.  While you are in that dirt trying to crack open and push your way through so that the sun (Son) will shine on you, you have encountered all kinds of forces of evil to keep you down in that dirt.  But God has placed a white picket fence (hedge of protection) all around the dirt that He planted His SEED.
 
The enemy has tried to keep you down by sending you a man that has abused and misused you.  You grew up in a household that caused you to be sexually abused and misused. You got an abortion, so the enemy is whispering in your ear, that you aren't qualified to receive God's grace and mercy.  The enemy has tried to keep you down by introducing you to drugs and alcohol.  The enemy has tried to still your joy and your mind.  You are on anti-depression medication and he wants to keep you right where you are.  The enemy has tried to keep you down by placing people with a form of godliness around you.
 
Now, my sister, watch the work of the Lord, Jesus Christ.  The Lord has kept that hedge of protection around you so that you could grow, no matter what the enemy throws your way, you have survived.  God has given you the ability to push through that dirt.  Push pass all the weeds that the devil has planted around you (drugs, alcohol abuse, sexual, mental and physical abuse).  Push pass the fact that you were raised in an unloving household.  Push threw the fact that you may have a child out of wedlock.  Push pass the people that you have trusted and they let you down.  Push your SEED threw all that dirt and when you come out, you will come out smelling like a rose.  The Word of God says, "You will be like a tree, planted by the rivers of water, bringing forth good fruit, in your due season.  Hang on to God and wait for your season to grow in Him.  GOD MADE DIRT . . . DIRT DON'T HURT.  Even though you may have been dropped on the ground, God can pick you up, and blow your dirt away and place you in His bosom. God's desire is for His SEED to grow, get stronger and stronger as the sun (Son) shines on it.  Though your SEED maybe crimson red, by sin, God has turned it around for His glory, watering  His SEED to make it white as snow.  PRAISE GOD!
