Cheryl Davis
Beauty from Chaos: The Work of the Spirit
2015.07.16 02:23:27

Twelve years ago my backyard was an ugly, overgrown, weed-filled mess. Thistles were taller than I was. A rock wall was crumbling because of the weeds and varmints living there. Shooters from the neighbors lilac bushes were growing all over the lawn. The old cement patio had caved in and shifted. (In my own defense, I have to say that I kept the lawn mowed, but there were gardens on all sides of the backyard that I did not have time to tend.)

 

This sight was so discouraging to me that I seldom looked out the back windows, and I kept the blinds closed so that no one else would either.   I was ashamed that this mess belonged to me. I finally found the courage and money to call a landscape architect. She stood in dumbfounded silence as her eyes traveled from one side of the yard to the other.

 

“Well,” she said. More silence. “Well,” she continued. “There are certainly a lot of possibilities here.”

 

A week later she had created a new backyard for me on paper. I hired her company to pull out the mess and put in the beds. They worked hard and long for many days, and when they left the last day, my backyard was a work of art. I was awed by the curving lines of the beds and the beautiful ground covers. And then came a terrible, sinking feeling. Now what? The huge beds were empty. What should I do with them? I’m not a gardener!

 

Fortunately, I met Horace that fall. He’s a gardener. The following July he started to work in those gardens, and he’s been creating beauty in the backyard ever since.

 

As I write this, I’m gazing at the backyard through a large bay window. The Holy Spirit reminds me that this is a picture of what he desires to do in the life of each of his children. Bara is the Hebrew word to describe this. It means to create something new from chaos.

 

The Spirit comes to us—weeds and all—and begins the work of creation within us. We may hide entire backyards of shame from everyone’s view, but he sees. He knows. He enables us to open the door to his love, and then he begins his creative work in our hearts. It can be a ton of work for him and for us, but the results are beautiful! If you need a visual, come and check out our backyard. Really. It’s a miracle we love to share.

 

Trusting the Spirit with you—Vicar Cheryl

Nice work guys. Backyard could become messy if we don’t spend some time maintaining it. I had the same issue when I moved to my current house, it was unoccupied for years and took me months to clear the area and make it into something worth watching now.
