|The Father's Work|
THE FATHERS WORK
The Father with loving care sees our need
To mature and produce fruit that will bless.
A farmer knows pruning will do this deed
A cutting will remove that which bears less.*
God becomes a surgeon that makes no err;
His design is always for our true good.
It sorrows Him for the pain we must bear
To become such treasure He knew we could.
Keep patience- your bitter pain will soon end.
In mercy and kindness God does His task.
With seasons short passing your heart will mend,
And happy in blessed joy you will bask.
"No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. later on however it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it."
Hebrews 12:11, NIV.
*Gospel of John 15:2.
I hope these words are an encouragement. God in his love knows we need to change and mature from our old ways to a lifestyle of blessing and service. Sometimes the process is painful as he takes away things that are harmful or stunt us as his children. No matter how difficult the time we go through God has a purpose in it. We can look forward to a time when God will accomplish the good in us and we will be people who are a blessing to others and experience blessing in our lives. Trust in God.
