Watch: Grace in the Wilderness: Prayers and Poetry



Watch

Shall be a day

Watching, listening, waiting

in hope, in trust, in faith

for the promise long ago given

in grace, in mercy, in love.


Will we be as committed

to each day’s possibilities

for words that change lives

to listen in obedience.


With our vision steadfast

in anticipation

for guidance, clarity, support

in expectancy.


Will we go

when the Spirits calls

whispers or shouts

walk now.



Romans 8:6, “For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace.”

Reflection: Day: Grace in the Wilderness: Prayers and Poetry



-->
Reflection

1.     Are we ready to listen for the call daily or has weariness silenced us?

2.     Are we ready to follow together or has fragmentation divided us?

3.     Where do our hesitations lie?

4.     What will engage our hearts to commit wholly?

Day: Grace in the Wilderness: Prayers and Poetry


-->
Jeremiah 31:6, “For there shall be a day when watchmen On the hills of Ephraim shall call out, ‘Arise, and let us go up to Zion, To the Lord our God.’”

Shall be a day.

Will there come a day Lord when we look to Your word first before wallowing in our own needs and struggles. When we will look up first in hope before down at the chains we are entangled in—both of our own failures and of life trials.


We pray to come to You first in all situations and possibilities and for a heart ready to obey in love and gratitude. For hearts set on You.

Set on trust.

Your Thoughts,

Plant: Grace in the Wilderness: Prayers and Poetry



Plant


Again will come

a time to plant

a time to seed

again to cultivate.


Put behind the loss

plant with expectation

plant with courage

put  away the fear.


Expect a harvest

enjoy the labor

enjoy the growth

expect to nurture.


Again in trust

a deliberate choice

a step of faith

again by grace.


Romans 8: 5, “For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.”

Reflection: Shall Plant: Grace in the Wilderness: Prayers and Poetry




Reflection

1.     Have you experienced or seen the devastation left from nature’s dark side: fire, tornado, hurricanes, earthquake, tsunami? What was your first thought?

2.     How did you, or would you, face the task of rebuilding?

3.     What loss might keep you from giving up completely at any restoration?

4.     What hope would give you the courage to begin again?

Shall Plant: Grace in the Wilderness: Prayers and Poetry


Jeremiah 31: 5, “Again you shall plant vineyards On the hills of Samaria; The planters shall plant and shall enjoy them.”

Again you shall plant.

The promise is for a plentiful harvest spreading over the hills.

And it requires a vision. Vineyards don’t grow in a few weeks but take years of labor. A new commitment. A willingness to trust.  Whatever we are being asked to reseed. Restore.

How do we grasp on to that measure of hope from a place of devastation and despair? Especially when in reality we may never see a whole recovery in our lifetime.

A daily heart decision. “Sow with a view to righteousness, Reap in accordance with kindness;” Hosea 10:12 We are each given seeds to sow for the work the Lord calls us to—even when we cannot recognize or imagine the outcome.

To remember that the Spirit is present now, and the one guiding us into the future. His vision in His time. “The sower sows the word.” Mark 14:20

An ongoing promise.

Hallowed purpose that we are invited to participate in every day. Included in all the stages of growth. Given a glimpse of the final celebration when everyone has been invited to the banquet.

Again and again.

Your Thoughts,
