A year in a day

The Lord’s words to me this morning came before I looked to see what the prompt was for this week’s Faith Jam. I may not have known what I was to be writing about today, but, as usual, He surely did. This is what He shared in the early morning hour:

It is a time of gathering as you harvest the fruits of your garden, but little one, there is much fruit you know not of and it is good indeed, and it too is being harvested in these days.

Do you not know that you have planted seeds with every kind word spoken, every loving touch? Spiritual gardens have been watered with every prayer you never knew you prayed, uttered as freely as breath.

In the season of dryness, your roots have grown deep and strong as they
sought for moisture like buried treasure. Have I not promised that those who seek Me will find Me?

Then you will seek Me, inquire for, and require Me [as a vital necessity] and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13 Amplified

Soon there will come a drenching rain and you will be able to stand in the wind of My Spirit, rooted, grounded and secure.

Together We will joy and laugh in each falling drop of glory.

Bonnie's prompt for the Faith Jam was this:
What season of faith are you walking through? Fall (letting go) – Winter (loss/waiting) – Spring (new starts) – Summer (embrace and celebrate)
I have lived through days that seemed to last a year
and years that have been crushed into the space of one day.
Seasons tossed, turned. spinning

The long days of scratching, digging, breaking thru
preparing the ground for planting
and the joyous work of scattering seeds

Weeks of waiting for the nourishment of rain
precarious, to much or not enough
both lead to trouble, loss, from parching or rotting

We celebrate the growth that has endured
as we race head first into a season of gathering
learning that plants have to die
as they offer up their fruit

I am scattered and watered
thrive and die
mourn and rejoice
lift my voice in wails and cheers
letting go while holding on
all by His hand


Jamming with Bonnie today about Faith Seasons

sharing also with Emily and others both broken and redeemed

So many nuances to our faith, to be sure. We sang "Desert Song" last night at church and I thought of today's prompt. Our faith is meant to sustain in every season. God is always enough.

it seems that when it comes to faith that the seasons can change several times a day.
