Jewels, Gems & Gunpowder

I would love to hear from you! Sharing Saturday with you.

Jewel: Waiting. Waiting. Waiting.

When you are waiting for the birth of a child, the anticipation of “what you are waiting for” is the center of the experience. That’s an easier kind of waiting and the blessing gained through that waiting is tremendous.

When you’re waiting for a sense of justice for a crime you’ve witnessed or endured, that is a miserable kind of waiting because you don’t know what you’re waiting for. What will the outcome be? Will justice be served or will your hope be dashed to the ground while the perpetrator walks away, scot-free!

I have written to our county prosecutor’s office asking them for a search warrant. Will I be granted access to the property where the murdered woman is still buried so I can excavate?

The agony of the waiting room.

Gem: “Both prophet and priest are godless; even in my temple I find their wickedness,”
declares the Lord. Jeremiah 23:11.

I have seen this with my own eyes. People who profess Christianity, but in their hearts there is wickedness. There is a lot of pretending happening in our churches. The deceitful hiding there, unchecked and not noticed.

God sees you. I see you. You’re not fooling all people with your useless words.

Metaphorical Gunpowder: I have had a rough few weeks waiting to hear back from the Prosecutor’s office. Should I have hope? Should I anticipate a good outcome? How do I find rest in the waiting?

Paul said this to the Corinthians, ““What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” — the things God has prepared for those who love him.” I am going to stand on this promise.

God does turn graves into gardens.

Leave your jewel, a gem or something you kept yourself free from with metaphorical gunpowder.

You see You (U C U) today! Blessings
