Welcome to Day 7
40 Days of Teshuvah
Face to face encounter. Abiding in the Vine! By Invitation only!
“Ani L’Dodi V’Dodi Li”
A set time, a season of deep introspection, an appointment, an invitation, a calling, to be set apart with The Lord.
Appointment in Merriam Webster’s Dictionary is defined as: an agreement to be present at a specified time and place.
Each year, by God’s design, we are summoned (invited) at a set time, a specified date, for an engagement, a rendezvous, an arrangement, by invitation only, to a meeting place…
Intercession; asking for God’s great mercy to triumph over judgement by the blood, for His people!
These appointed times are known in Hebrew as
Mo’eds and Mo’edims. Appointed or Set times.
Today is the seventh
Time to get real
He said we’ll bring joy to Heaven
He said repentance
Is joy to their ears
Who is He talking about
What do they hear
In the field today
We dug up roots
I’m so glad we had shovels
And I wore my boots
Much harder now
Than I imagined at first
Wow this work
Can make a girl thirst
I’ll rest good tonight
After all this hard work
He said we’d meet tomorrow
Down by the brook

In 2019, the Lord began the season of Teshuvah, giving me a poem each day. Each Teshuvah season is very precious to me, but this one was especially precious to me. The Lord met me, and taught me, and explained the process, using very practical analogies. Hard Work! Gardening, and the hard physical labor of clearing and preparing my field.
Showing how physical points and defines the spiritual. He explained, while detailing topics of work clothes, garden and field tools, heat, thirst, sore muscles, blisters, tears of sadness and joy along with excitement, and yes complete exhaustion.
Always with the promise that He would see me the next morning to assist and teach more.
Face to Face.
Jesus told His disciples, the fields are white unto harvest, but the laborers are few.
Trained and taught by The Lord of the Harvest, through His word, ensures our own field produces fruit that lasts. He then sends us to teach and help others. Ground conditions are crucial to harvest, and to our assignments, but often overlooked.
His people are called to tend His field, have dominion and become fruitful.
John 15: 16
“You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and I have appointed you [I have planted you], that you might go and bear fruit and keep on bearing, and that your fruit may be lasting [that it may remain, abide], so that whatever you ask the Father in My Name [as presenting all that I AM], He may give it to you.”
John 15:16 AMPC
Seek the Lord while He may be found.
Seek the LORD while He may be found; Call on Him [for salvation] while He is near.
To change a nation we must reconcile (and teach and train) His people back to The Lord of the harvest. His field, His harvest!!
God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord cause His countenance to rise upon you and give you Shalom.
Until next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette
