the harvest home

God will provide all we need.

We stress and we worry.  We frantically chase down the blaring goal at hand.  We plan and make due and adjust when things don’t go our way.  We collapse at the end of the day, knowing the best we could do wasn’t enough, and even if it was, it has to be done all over again tomorrow.  We beat ourselves up when life beats us down. It’s the vicious circle of hope and despair, of love and mid-life.  It’s a beautiful pattern whether or not we ever learn to embrace it.  For every single time we end up in the exact same spot–the arms and loving provision of God.

O give thanks to the LORD, for He is good, and His steadfast love endures forever.

Our need is what makes the love of God go round.  Our need is what turned the heavens upside down.  Our need is the prayer of begging please.  Our need is what brought our Lord to His knees.   Rejoice and be glad when in want or in need.  Your tears are the fruit of a humble invitation.  Loose your belt and open your lips, your ears, your hands and your heart. The Son of God reigns in joyful abundance.  Take and eat the goodness of family and friends, job and home, earth and sky.  Receive this Burning Light, this Hope of all hopes, the God of all comfort and life.

He is evermore giving even more of Himself.
