Feeling down? Work in a garden and you will feel better. God’s small miracles are happening in your garden every day: the opening of a rosebud, the sprouting of a seed, a small flower turning into a tomato and ripening in the sun. The wonders you see reveal God’s love, and so do small miracles that you can’t see.
God’s Hidden Healing Power
Scientists have identified a surprising way that God helps us feel better when we need a burst of vitality and productivity in the spring. A tiny microbe found in garden soil, Mycobacterium Vaccae, is released whenever the soil is disturbed. This microbe has a unique, God-given talent: it strengthens and stimulates your immune system.
Why Is That So Miraculous?
When these tiny soil microbes stimulate your immune system, they set in motion a chemical reaction in your brain. This reaction causes the release of serotonin, a chemical that gives you a sense of well-being. In fact, the feel-good effect of these microbes has been compared to the antidepressant power of Prozac. And here’s another little miracle: there are no dangerous side effects! In addition, your stimulated immune system is better able to resist the universal springtime complaint: allergies.
So go ahead; get your hands dirty. Plant a tree, weed your garden, and drink in God’s springtime tonic!
