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
