Readying For Reaping

My eyes delight at the sight of tiny corn plants sprouting in the fields.  It must be tricky business for the farmers to plant their crops amidst too much rain or too little, all the while yearning for a good harvest yet to come.

Jesus, thank You for growing us and all the seeds we plant for You.   May Your heavenly harvest be huge!

Here’s a simple poem to encourage us as we ready the harvest for Him.

Sickle Select

Planted here on earth
to grow and take root,
am I just taking in the elements
or producing good fruit?
Let me add to the harvest
which one day will come,
laboring for the glory
of the Holy risen Son.

“Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.”  Revelation 14:15


  1. Deb, You are definitely adding to the harvest when you use your gift of poetry writing to point to Him. Peace, Linda

  2. Deb
    I love the corn analogy. Your outlook on the sowing and reaping in your poem is very encouraging, May the harvest truly be huge. God Bless

  3. Thanks Linda! May He use us however He wants! God bless you and the gifts you use for Him.

  4. God bless you! I would want for everyone to be saved! 🙂

  5. I have a poem I’ve been trying to write for years talking about learning to blanch corn from my best friend’s father who was also the doctor on call the night my mother died…can’t ever seem to write it but you are inspiring me to try again!

  6. You have so many stories that need told yet . . .so many poems to get out. And they are not easy ones to do. Praying for you Jessie as you keep writing, keep going forward, and helping others to do the same. 🙂 God bless you!
