Hope of Harvest

Even in the midst of our most stressing and distressing moments,
we may find peace
if we truly believe that God is at work in all things
for the good of those who love him
and are called according to his purpose.

He who gives us our daily bread
will also give us the wisdom that comes from above,
wisdom that is pure and gentle and peaceable.

He who heals us of our diseases
will also heal us of our scars,
our deficiencies,
our agonies,
and our insecurities.

He who calls us to righteousness and holiness
also calls us to not think more highly of ourselves
than we ought to think
and to put the good of others
above our own.

He who supplies the seed for sowing
also causes the sun to shine upon both the righteous
and the unrighteous
and sends his good rain upon the fields of the wicked
as well as upon those of the upright.

Submission is the beginning of peace,
humility the beginning of wisdom,
repentance the beginning of healing.

Planting is begun in the plowing of faith,
the sweat of hope is the source of harvest
and love the beginning of all good things.
