GRACE WEEPING

I No, my dearies, beautiful Grace did not weep that day It is a matter of weeping over grace at mealtime Not to make a federal case out of it, but one day Alone, did say grace, knew my veggies were divine II The tears began to fall: "Jesus, your amazing provision!" Vegetarian I was, but only cook veg in my home I recalled islands I toured: Trinidad, Mauritius, Reunion When it was harder to eat well, as I was not alone III Not bragging, but since that day I'm aware Jesus is near Very interested in my food preferences, always proving His title, "Jehovah Jireh" even as He took Isaac's spear When we walk with Him, plain food becomes communion! NOTE: In Genesis 22, Abraham is about to sacrifice his son, Isaac, to prove to God he, Abraham, is obedient & trusting in the Resurrection. When the Angel stopped the killing, a ram was substituted. High up a mount, all alone, a single male sheep? Caught & crowned by thorns? That was a Christophany, previewing Jesus' willingness to die in our place. In this chapter we find God revealing this aspect of His provisoning for His flock: YHWH Yireh

So help me God in three Persons. Jesus, in John 14, started telling us His next greatest gift to believers: Holy Spirit. O He is real, Jesus without limits. I ask the Spirit to help me stay faithful & thankful to Jesus ... I'll keep asking Him, Pixie.
