Read Psalm 126


Read Psalm 126

      126       When the LORD brought us back to Jerusalem,
     it was like a dream!
     2      How we laughed, how we sang for joy!
     Then the other nations said about us,
     “The LORD did great things for them.”
     3      Indeed he did great things for us;
     how happy we were!

     4      LORD, make us prosperous again,
     just as the rain brings water back to dry riverbeds.
     5      Let those who wept as they sowed their seed,
     gather the harvest with joy!

     6      Those who wept as they went out carrying the seed
     will come back singing for joy,
     as they bring in the harvest. 


The vision of verses 5 and 6 is so vivid.  Going out to sow seed seems like such hard work - burying bits of plant in the soil... but the hard work produces a harvest.  God is faithful.


Lord help me to see the struggles of this life as the planting of seeds that will grow to bear fruit in your time.
