preparing your field...(sing the song of Psalm part 1)

The book of Psalm is truly one of the most beautiful books ever written. The language and the fluidity of the words is unlike anything in this world. It speaks of His faithfulness, just mercy, unending grace and furious love for His children. Over time, I've come across some pretty amazing verses in Psalm, I couldn't help but share them with you! I introduce you to my new 4 part series,  
"Sing the Song of Psalm".

I invite you guys to explore the book of Psalm this month. I can guarantee, you will not be disappointed! Share with everyone what you have been learning with the hashtag #singthesongofpsalm on Twitter and Instagram! I would love to discover new verses with you guys! 

"Those who shed tears as they plant will shout for joy when they reap the harvest." 
Psalm 126:5

Check out this clip from Facing the Giants:

"God will send the rain when He's ready. You need to prepare your fields to receive it."
There are times in life where God seems to just knock us off our feet. We truly feel as if we are facing giants. We find ourselves on our knees asking God, "Why? Why now? Why me?". In those moments, God is having us plant seeds along with our tears. We don't know it yet, but the difficulties we are going through are preparing us for something way bigger and better then we had expected.

Around this time, our spirits are weak, tired, and we feel as though we may never fight again. This, friends, is where we need to prepare our fields. In need of rain? In need of something to quench your spiritual thirst? He will send the rain when He is ready, all you need to do is prepare your fields. His word promises you that you can make it through. He will give you the strength to overcome.

He affirms to us that we will reap joy with our harvest. We just need to prepare our fields.

Dear Heavenly Father, 
I don't know what is going on or how to handle it. I feel defeated, forgotten, and unloved. I don't have the strength to go any farther. But, I know that you are the Ultimate Provider. You have full control of my heart and life and You want the very best for me. I'm asking You for rain. I'm  preparing my fields for You. I give You everything I have.

  1. girl Facing the Giants is a great movie. You should watch em all.

    It's done by a church that is just 45 miles from my house. I highly recommend them all.

    There's one before Facing the Giants but I dont remember the name of it.

    Then there's "Fireproof" and "Courageous" and they are working on another one.

    Love em all. Plus I have the book "The Love Dare" that goes along with Fireproof. It's great.

    if you have a daily devotion plan that you recommend I'd love to know what it is b/c I have a hard time reading my devotion that my gma gave me for cmas. I lose interest.


I love comments, I truly do. So leave one at the beep....
