Come, be richly fed!

“The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry. It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it. You will live in joy and peace. The mountains and hills will burst into song, and the trees of the field will clap their hands! Where once there were thorns, cypress trees will grow. Where nettles grew, myrtles will sprout up. These events will bring great honor to the Lord’s name; they will be an everlasting sign of his power and love.”  Isaiah 55:10-13

How beautiful is this promise? I’ve been so taken with the book of Isaiah during lockdown, and even though I still read and study other parts of my Bible, I’m drawn back again and again to Isaiah.

This old tree near our house was completely bare of leaves a week ago. Then one morning I noticed one new leaf. Within three days there were a few dozen. Now you can hardly see the branches!

If you feel your life has been stripped bare, I’d encourage you to read Isaiah 55. It’s a call, an invitation from the very heart of God, to ‘come,’ to draw near to Him, to be richly fed by Him. To open the eyes and ears of your heart to His Word and to who He really is, not who you think he is. Even if you have walked with Him for many years, there’s always so much more to know of this incredible Father God of ours.

I love getting together with friends and sharing with each other over a cup of coffee what God is doing in our lives, it boosts my faith and lifts my heart. That's the aim of this blog. There's a story behind it; It was inspired after a friend gave me a single mustard seed, saying ‘that’s all it takes Jill’. What my friend didn’t know was that the very same morning God had reminded me of a promise He'd made to me over 20 years before regarding writing. I took the mustard seed home, planted it and watched it grow from a tiny sapling to a large, flourishing shrub at our front door. Every time I look at it it reminds me that our God is always true to his promises. Jesus lives in and works through his people, every single day. It's good to share what he's doing! I love talking about Him and writing about Him.

  1. Good morning, Jill, as I prepare to lead a class online, this verse speaks to me. God is on the move! I read somewhere (can’t remember where) that we are at the stage in the quarantine where depression and restlessness are setting in, about 6-7 weeks. I thank God I have not slipped into depression. I pray you are well. Love in Christ, Julie

    1. How lovely Julie, I love the way the Lord connects us all, His body, the church, all over the world. Sometimes we never even get to meet each other face to face, but there’s an unbreakable bond. I’m very glad to know that you have not fallen prey to depression. I agree, I think it’s a common issue at present. I find walking, gardening, avoiding too much tv, and making sure I keep a good daily routine a big help. x
