Has God set a law of sowing and reaping
and harvest time
— not just in the natural world around us —
but also into our very spoken words?
When we buy a packet of zinnia seeds, for example, we expect to see beautiful golden blossoms eventually bloom in replica to the colorful picture portrayed there. In the same way, the thoughts we put into words from the moment we wake each morning and continue to reiterate throughout the day are bringing us a harvest of one kind or another.
The question is —
Are the well-meant words we sow with our mouths
producing weeds and eaten by worms?
Or are we planting our speech in anticipation
of God’s overtaking blessing to our lives?

Thanks for joining in on this Fall winnowing of our words!
— Day 18 —
I was remembering a day when God took the string of my anxious words, adjusted their course with ribbons of praise and sent them soaring to His provision…
A repost that just seems perfect for this Sunday Harvest of Our Words... 🙂
I let my breath out slowly, felt tension drain. My ‘yes’ was more like an exhale than a word. But God has been showing me so much lately in His Word about praying and speaking out His Favor to cover my needs and others.
Like the Word that says “Let the redeemed of the Lord say so.”
Like Dorothy and friends in Oz, I need to sing out – ding dong, the witch (devil) is dead and rejoice in the Lord’s victory…over…even…this.
Like the psalmist prayed without compunction.
Like the LORD God gave covenant to in Deuteronomy 28: “My Favor is on you… Rest in Me…”
Join me here to begin at the beginning... Let’s Go Fly A Kite…
