What you have sown will spring forth. See, I am doing this thing. You will eat of the fruit which you have endured much labor for. The garden has been a place of abiding for you, with its high hedges for protection and security. Dwell there with me and enjoy its pleasures. Surely, you will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. I have loved you with an everlasting love. You are loved. I thought that you were worth it when I died for you. Do not be downtrodden. I Am here always. I will never leave you or forsake you. Do not fear. Abide in my Love for you. It is strong enough to hold you and keep you. Trust me, my child. You cannot imagine what I have waiting for you. Wait upon my timing. In due time, my plans will spring forth like new growth. It will be beautiful to behold. You will see it and experience it. Hold on to me. Let go of that which ties you down. Listen to the voice of Truth. Listen to My whispers to you. Do you hear them like the soft, gentle breeze. Those are for you, my child. I do love you so. I Am the God that healeth you. It will be complete and you will be renewed and restored gently. Bask in My presence, in my love for you. Sit and my feet and enjoy this time. Do not look at what happens around you. I sit on the throne and it is all in my hands. Remember, in my timing, my plans will unfold and spring forth. Sit back and enjoy this journey, little one.
Is. 61:11—For as the earth BRINGS FORTH its BUD, as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to SPRING FORTH, So THE LORD GOD will CAUSE RIGHTEOUSNESS and PRAISE to SPRING FORTH before ALL THE NATIONS.) (Is. 43:5—Fear not, for I am WITH YOU; I will BRING your DESCENDANTS from THE EAST, and gather you from THE WEST; (6) I will say to THE NORTH, “Give them up! And to THE SOUTH, “Do not keep them back! BRING MY SONS from AFAR, AND MY DAUGHTERS FROM THE ENDS OF THE EARTH—(7) EVERYONE WHO IS CALLED BY MY NAME, Whom I have CREATED for MY GLORY; I have formed him, YES, I have made him.”)

I see from the others' comments that we all feel pretty much the same way: "This was for me." But of course it was! Out of His endless supply of mercy, He uses the testimony of His graciousness to one in order to minister to many. We can all benefit from the tender words of encouragement that He's given you. Oh, but as touched as we all are, nobody is so affected by that word or His presence as the very person who is basking in it the moment that word from Him comes forth.
Mitzi, I loved this article. I've been planting gardens for years, and to see the plants springing forth from the soil with new growth is such a blessing from God. Thanks for these wonderful words of encouragement!
