There are times where we try our absolute hardest to do what we sense we are supposed to be doing but still end up in a wilderness. There is always this “one-step forward, two-steps back” in the process of maturing (that is if we desire to mature). As we are making our way through our personal place in our journey, we most certainly stumble across tidbits from others gardens (negative and positive) that sustain some place within us for a time so we don’t completely get crushed under the weight of starvation. Through processing on the threshing floor, winepress, and olive press we find what we need in the season. For me, writing is part of that process. This is my field of posts! I believe everything has a purpose in the Eternal Kingdom. Every part plays a part.
Deuteronomy 24:19-22 – “When you reap your harvest in your field, and forget a sheaf in the field, you shall not go back to get it; it shall be for the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hands. 20 When you beat your olive trees, you shall not go over the boughs again; it shall be for the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow. 21 When you gather the grapes of your vineyard, you shall not glean it afterward; it shall be for the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow. 22 And you shall remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt; therefore I command you to do this thing.
There are many times what I forgot or didn’t pick up the first time through is there for me the next time I wander through. How about you?
