From This Day Forward

 

Pomegranate_DSW

“Is the seed still in the barn?  As yet the vine, the fig tree, the pomegranate, and the olive tree have not yielded fruit.  But from this day forward I will bless you.”  Haggai 2:19

The people had suffered through drought, blight, mildew and hail.

Thank You, Lord, for helping us move forward into Your blessings as we turn to You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Seems like it’s been
a tough year here

not much planted
not much fruit

oh let me always
turn forward with You, Lord

watching for the blessings
of new beginnings and shoots.

God bless you from this day forward!

In Ruins

“You looked for much, but indeed it came to little; and when you brought it home, I blew it away. Why?” says the LORD of hosts. “Because of My house that is in ruins,  while every one of you runs to his own house.”  Haggai 1:9

Sometimes it seems counter productive to run to God and spend my time with Him.

Thank You, Lord, for the beautiful way You are with us and work in our lives as we come to You and put You first.  And here’s a simple poem. . .

I can run to my own house
to my friends and family

build upon those relationships
and all I feel and see

nothing really wrong with that
but there will remain a drought in me

until I come to You and put You first
worshiping and glorifying Thee.

God bless you as you run to Him today!
