Go With God

It seemed like a dream, too good to be true, when God returned Zion's exiles.
   We laughed, we sang,
      we couldn't believe our good fortune.
   We were the talk of the nations—
      "God was wonderful to them!"
   God was wonderful to us;
      we are one happy people.

 And now, God, do it again—
      bring rains to our drought-stricken lives
   So those who planted their crops in despair
      will shout hurrahs at the harvest,
   So those who went off with heavy hearts
      will come home laughing, with armloads of blessing.
                                                                                 ---Psalm 126 (The Message)

Go with God.  Seek the high roads, the silver lining in the clouds, the beauty in the uniqueness of a snowflake (if snowfall be your on-going mid-winter curse).  God has delivered many - so many, in fact, that we do not begin to even recognize them -- even when "they" are me.  Turn your eyes on Jesus and find his gentle gaze looking back at you - reflecting in the tiny glint of his eye the strong desire that you only have to "Follow me."  Let the Savior lead - plant your crops, weigh your heart and find at day's end an armload of blessing.
