Elul 9

Day 9 of 40 Days of Teshuvah

Season of Return- my favorite time of the year!

return [to God—seek His purpose for your life], so that your sins may be wiped away [blotted out, completely erased], so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord [restoring you like a cool wind on a hot day];”

September/Elul
Today is nine
He said our work schedule
Is right on time

We rise early
Then meet and go
If it weren’t for my Lord
I wouldn’t know

So much to learn
About deadly weeds
I didn’t realize the danger
Or know about seeds

He’s begun teaching me
About multiplication
Good or bad
And soil saturation

Words have power
Check the seeds sown
Once in the ground
What is planted is grown

He speaks in parables
While explaining this stuff
Is my Teshuvah Date
Making this rough

He said it is given to me
The mysteries To know
We have much more work
Before we can sow

Hard work on a hot day causes us to sweat. It is then we truly appreciate the cool breeze against our skin…

Don’t miss your appointment. Preparing fallow ground is hard work, but harvest brings untold joy! The apostle Paul reminds us;

“The harvest you reap reveals the seed that you planted. If you plant the corrupt seeds of self-life into this natural realm, you can expect a harvest of corruption.
These are the roots we are digging up, plowing under, burning and destroying.

And then we are free and taught by His Spirit what to plant. We are free from the dead, and can choose our new and future crops-

If you plant the good seeds of Spirit-life you will reap beautiful fruits that grow from the everlasting life of the Spirit. And don’t allow yourselves to be weary in planting good seeds, for the season of reaping the wonderful harvest you’ve planted is coming!”
‭‭Galatians‬ ‭6:8-9‬ ‭TPT‬‬

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
