Digging Through Life | Garden Analogy
This journaling references "digging my way through life" and needing a break. This worm digs through life every day and is sort of just there, blah, covered in slime. Sometimes life is like that for me where I am covered with the slime of life, always having to fight hear with perseverance to get through every little task.
The worm has a vital purpose in aerating and turning the soil as it digs, which helps plants to grow. Without worms, our earth grown food would not be as possible.
"He who digs a pit will fall into it" Ecclesiastes 10:8a reminds me to look at life as not digging a hole that I would fall into and never get out, but rather to dig like the worm, turning the difficult into the helpful, aerating life so that God's goodness can permeate, turning over a new life, and allow the fruits of the Spirit to grow.
