Difficult to Eradicate

Kudzu drives homeowner crazy! It might not make a byline for a newspaper reporter but it does happen. As a Florida Yankee transplant, I once made the mistake of describing the sprawling plants as pretty. The Northwest Florida native quickly set me straight. In reality, they are a nuisance and nearly impossible to eradicate. To their dismay, homeowners and lawn-care companies’ watch as kudzu take over property.

To my dismay, being busy drives me crazy! My frustration makes no headlines. Daily routines and responsibilities have their place; penciled in appointments and scheduled special events are noteworthy. Problems arise when my to-do list mushrooms and busyness takes over my life. Instead of seeing plans as meaningful, I perceive many as intrusions and distractions from times of solitude.

In solitude, I seek my Savior. “Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find me, when you search for Me with all your heart. And I will be found by you, declares the LORD (Jeremiah 29:12-14a NAS).” When I become too busy, my times of seeking Him through Bible study, prayer and meditation diminishes. Busyness is difficult to eradicate; the Holy Spirit makes self-control in my schedules possible.

Amazingly one of the best most natural ways to control Kudzu is to obtain a goat (land area permitting). Goats eat even faster than Kudzu can grow. It then looks like you have your Kudzu under control when it is really the goat doing the work. I use this illustration to remind myself that self control has very little to do with self. Self control is a fruit of the Holy Spirit not of my own discipline. I appear disciplined / self controlled when I surrender completely to Jesus.
