Hope For The Apple

The earth crumbles beneath calloused feet

that gets tangled within The Vine.

Tiny wings holding such weight

longing for relief.

The heart beats;

The lungs pump,

dancing with the growing crowd of cells.

Oh how quickly the ground quakes

trying to bury such joy!

And the petite appendages struggle once again.

Where can Hope find Shelter?

It is among the branches

of The Vine where the fruit grows!

That is where the tremors cease

as the earth learns to trust

The Gardner once again.

Saturday Stew 4

Sweet Lord, I thank You for all that You have done, for loving us like no one else does, for never leaving us, nor forsaking us….though we’ve run so far from You. I pray that as we feel the farthest from Life, full of the most pain…feeling sooo abandoned, that we know that we CAN call on You and you WILL answer us. I pray that we set aside ourselves and allow Your tender arms to hold, guard and heal us…that we may rejoice with You once again.

 

Yesterday my husband took me to the movie Gimme Shelter.  I totally recommend it!  Without giving away the movie (every part is incredible!), I would like to discuss it just a titch.

 

Apple, the main character, begins the movie in a setting and wants a change. When she tries to leave her current situation, the people there try to stop her…

The question I bring to the table this week is how do you overcome difficulties when you know you need to face a challenge? Where do you find support?

 

My challenge is my health.  The church I attend has a precious group called The Holy Huddle. We are only accountable to God, but are supportive to each other…and it’s through our Facebook site 🙂  When I am struggling with my health I pray, go to the Scriptures or my friends and family for prayer ❤

 

If you are facing a challenge and would like someone to pray through with you please email me at 2L2phant@midco.net
