Good seeds planted in the fields of contentment
Many things rest in the past
Thoughts of what could have been
Yearning and longing,
People, places and circumstances
All seen in hindsight now through the faithfull eyes of true love;
“But now is the time of God’s favor”!
The blessings would still have been poured out
Choices honored in righteousness,
But divine contingencies
Seeds planted and watered
Lives affected, hearts drawn upwards
Glimpses given of what is beyond,
Encouragement of multitudes multiplied along this only honest path,
Would have fallen short;
The heavenly kingdom at a loss
The King without all the honor due Him.
Joy does rule this day with no second thoughts
Gratitude meets gladness with a kiss of Spirit truth;
All that could have been
People, precious lives, destined blessing, gift of eternal life,
Sips of sacred water for ones who thirst
Pieces of rich, dark whole grain bread for ones who hunger,
Today rests satisfied in this life given.
Then, there’s Israel, and the Temple Mount
And their divine destiny in the face of all the world’s hatred!
