They Shall Come Back

Just as God instructed a confused Jeremiah

To buy a field in a land too soon

To be overrun by the enemy,

He has instructed me to believe

That my prayers, spoken too timidly

With far too few words, are effecting change.

The territory sold into slavery

Has been redeemed and my children

Set free. I don’t see them coming home

Yet. But God is preparing the way.

He has spoken His word and it shall be

Accomplished as He purposed.

“Thus says the Lord,

‘Refrain your voice from weeping,

And your eyes from tears;

For your work shall be rewarded,

Says the Lord.

And they shall come back

From the land of the enemy.

There is hope in your future,

Says the Lord,

That your children shall come back

To their own border.’” Jeremiah 31:16-17.

Amen and amen
