“What wondrous life is this I lead!
Ripe apples drop about my head;
The luscious clusters of the vine
Upon my mouth do crush their wine;
The nectarine and curious peach
Into my hands themselves do reach;
Stumbling on melons, as I pass,
Ensnared with flowers, I fall on grass.”
– Andrew Marvell, Thoughts in a Garden

If My People’s Hearts Are Humbled

If My People’s Hearts Are Humbled
If My people’s hearts are humbled, if they pray and seek My face; If they turn away from evil, I will not withhold My grace. I will hear their prayers from heaven; I will pardon every sin. If My people’s hearts are humbled, I will surely heal their land.

Then My eyes will see their sorrow, then My ears will hear their plea; If My people’s hearts are humbled, I will set their nation free. If My people’s hearts are humbled, if they pray and seek my face; If they turn away from evil, I will not withhold My grace.

After the flooding this week… After all of my driveway had washed down the road and across the road, I found this little daisy – STANDING- among the mud, rocks, dirt, and debris. It had went through something that should have destroyed it… But it still stood tall. God has given us his strength, his wisdom, his power to stand tall in Him! “Put on the full armor of God ….. And after you have done everything … STAND!” (Eph.6:13)
