As he stared at me
I thanked God for cows
All His foreknowledge and know-how
For think of milk
Its calcium, its fill
Sleepless nights call for a glass of warm milk
Chocolate chip cookies need to dunk
Homemade mac and cheese need spunk
Bones made alive
No matter how dry
And His promise
He sees you
He loves you
Trust His plan
To lift your feet and place you where you will stand
In a blessed land
Flowing with honey
And cow’s milk plenty
I encountered this cow on my drive home last night. As I got closer, so he walked toward the fence near the road. I stopped right there in the middle of the road to take his picture. I just thought I was supposed to.
There are many passages in the Bible referring to cattle, animals in general.
But He led me in my thoughts to the “land flowing with milk and honey”.
Whatever it is you are stuck in, going through, He promises to bring you out. Trust Him.
“Go assemble the elders of Israel and say to them, ‘The Lord, the God of your fathers – the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob – appeared to me and said: I have watched over you and have seen what has been done to you in Egypt. And I have promised to bring you up out of your misery in Egypt into the land of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites … a land flowing with milk and honey’ (Exodus 3:16-17).
Have a beauty-full day.
