While standing in the cornfield in our backyard, I “caught a thought.” One of that old Stephen King movie, Children of the Corn. I’m not one for scary movies, but I had to laugh out loud on that one, because that’s how I roll. (Just refer to the t-shirt)
You have crowned the year with Your bounty,
And Your paths drip with fatness.
The pastures of the wilderness drip,
And the hills gird themselves with rejoicing.
The meadows are clothed with flocks
And the valleys are covered with grain;
They shout for joy, yes, they sing.Psalms 65:11-13
I never actually watched the movie. My high school buddies filled me in on all the details, as I could not handle many movies from this particular genre. It’s not that I did not try.
The Lord Shall Open His Good Treasure
Of course, I also “caught a positive” from all this…
We ARE the children of the corn!!!
Not in a scary movie kind of way. But in the blessings of God kind of way.
“Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.
The Lord shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.”
Deuteronomy 28:3, 8
You visit the earth and cause it to overflow;
You greatly enrich it;
The stream of God is full of water;
You prepare their grain, for thus You prepare the earth.Psalms 65:9
There were so many wonderful scriptures I could have added, a whole book full of them, in fact! Every scripture, every promise of the Word of God holds LIFE, corn, fatness, blessings! The Word is the VERY LIFE and LIGHT of God Himself!
I don’t know about you my friend, but I am so glad to be housing that LIGHT inside me!!!
So yeah…..We are truly blessed going in and blessed going out! Blessed and highly favored of the Lord!
