The Journey Readings… Week:70… and… the earth’s harvest…

The earth has yielded its harvest
[in evidence of God’s approval];
God, even our own God, will bless us.
Psalm 67:6 Amp
After reading this verse yesterday… near the end of the last psalm in last week’s readings… I looked out the window…

The abundance of green… overwhelmed…
The earth has yielded its produce;
God, our God, blesses us.
Psalm 67:6 NASB95
His abundant blessing in sunshine… and green leaves… bursting forth this Spring… providing oxygen… and shade…
The abundance of moisture… He has provided for this to happen… His abundant generosity… just in my backyard… overwhelms…
To think beyond… to all that’s produced by the earth… to fill grocery store shelves… and feed the world… truly stretches the imagination…
His generosity… beyond abundant… through the earth’s harvest… to meet our physical needs…
Not to mention… the infinite blessing of His grace… to feed our spiritual needs…
forgiveness…
mercy…
compassion…
love…
healing…
poured out through His Son…
It makes me ashamed of the poor representative I am of His Kingdom… His way…
Just for a moment… I saw a glimpse of what the world would produce… if it were up to me… brown grass… trees with few leaves…
My own heart… still so far from where it should be… when it comes to generosity… grace… pouring out myself for others… for Him…
Lord… free me to burst forth… as generous as You…
