Its a Process!

Psalms 65. My early morning read. My take out : Life can be liken to a field - God being the farmer. Verses 9 & 10 describe God's " "action-ed process" in bringing His land to yield...i.e caring for the land....watering it....drenching furrows... leveling ridges...softening the ground...blessing the crop... and.... the result of it all...."crowned bounty evidenced by overflowed carts!". 

I believe the same principle applies when we surrender our life to God. God prepares us for fruitfulness, it is a process of drenching , leveling and softening our soils - souls, sowing His word, watering  it, and blessing us into overflowing fruitfulness!

Key word here is process. It takes time, but you can be certain of the result - a crowned bounty!
  
Psalms 65.  

Praise awaits you, our God, in Zion;
   to you our vows will be fulfilled.
2 You who answer prayer,
   to you all people will come.
3 When we were overwhelmed by sins,
   you forgave our transgressions.
4 Blessed are those you choose
   and bring near to live in your courts!
We are filled with the good things of your house,
   of your holy temple.
 5 You answer us with awesome and righteous deeds,
   God our Savior,
the hope of all the ends of the earth
   and of the farthest seas,
6 who formed the mountains by your power,
   having armed yourself with strength,
7 who stilled the roaring of the seas,
   the roaring of their waves,
   and the turmoil of the nations.
8 The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders;
   where morning dawns, where evening fades,
   you call forth songs of joy.
  9 You care for the land and water it;
   you enrich it abundantly.
The streams of God are filled with water
   to provide the people with grain,
   for so you have ordained it.
10 You drench its furrows and level its ridges;
   you soften it with showers and bless its crops.
11 You crown the year with your bounty,
   and your carts overflow with abundance.
12 The grasslands of the wilderness overflow;
   the hills are clothed with gladness.
13 The meadows are covered with flocks
   and the valleys are mantled with grain;
   they shout for joy and sing.

Loving You

Dear God,
I prayed this morning, that You would give me wisdom to live this day in a way that pleased You, and on my way to work, the below verses were read by the gentleman on radio whose life is centered on kingdom business.....
Matthew 22....“One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
 37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”  
Deuteronomy 6 …..
1 These are the commands, decrees and laws the LORD your God directed me to teach you to observe in the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess, 2 so that you, your children and their children after them may fear the LORD your God as long as you live by keeping all his decrees and commands that I give you, and so that you may enjoy long life. 3 Hear, Israel, and be careful to obey so that it may go well with you and that you may increase greatly in a land flowing with milk and honey, just as the LORD, the God of your ancestors, promised you.
 4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. 5 Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates.”
.........You and I know too well of the coldness my heart bore a few days ago…coldness directed at You….because I gave You ultimatums (I forget am dust!) that You did not / seem not to fulfill at my time…the car I need paid in a year, the job deal that should have closed three weeks ago but fell flat, and the pending decision I need to make, for which I have not been able to hear Your thoughts on….. mountains that the above verses felled to reveal how small headed I am. My eyes have been so so so (embarrassingly!!) focused on Your hand, I forgot to look up and see Your desire for me to love You above all the things that Your hands hold – to love You with my heart, soul and mind. This You say is the 1st and greatest command – me following this, is a sure way to please You and it is my intention to do so going forth.
Your Love,
Me.

Out and Into....

I found my darkness
My subconscious led me to it...
In all consciousness, this was the last place I wanted to be.
Lost in the shadows and rays of the unknown...and known
I followed a path, a path I shouldn't have....I followed a shadow.

That shadow fouled a cancer into my soul
A cancer that has been chiseling the foundations of my being.
at 8am - today, a ray of the known shone, vanquished my darkness
I have found my light, my conscious led me to it.
In all consciousness, this is the place I want to be.
