Okay! Today is June 1st and that means it is time for a new memory verse. This months verse come from Proverbs 13:12.
"Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life."So many of us have hopes and desires that we are waiting on God to fulfill. In our season of waiting we may feel heart sick, wondering if the things we have been praying about are going to become reality. We cry and pray and cry some more and pray some more.
Take a look at the verse again. "...but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life." It takes a long time to grow a tree!!!(preaching to myself right now.) It doesn't grow over night or in the time it takes to pop a bag of popcorn in the microwave. We cannot treat God like He is a microwave and our prayers are the food. Think trees!!! They take a long time to grow but when they are full grown they are full of green leaves, provide shade and protection and most of all they stand years and years.
You see, when we heat food in the microwave and don't eat it quickly it gets cold, hard and nasty. Why would we want microwaved blessings from God? Trees my friends think about the tree that He has planted and is cultivating for you.
Make it a great day!
