A Good Land

Surface Tension, originally uploaded by darkmatter.

Keep in mind that the LORD your God has been disciplining you just as a man disciplines his son. So keep the commands of the LORD your God by walking in His ways and fearing Him. For the LORD your God is bringing you into a good land, a land with streams of water, springs, and deep water sources, flowing in both valleys and hills; a land of wheat, barley, vines, figs, and pomegranates; a land of olive oil and honey; a land where you will eat food without shortage, where you will lack nothing; a land whose rocks are iron and from whose hills you will mine copper. When you eat and are full, you will praise the LORD your God for the good land He has given you
Deuteronomy 8:5-10

Aside from the magnificent photo, I was struck by the Word. When I read it again...and again, I was reminded of how generous our God is to us and yet we are not satisfied.

God grant me the grace to be satisfied with your goodness and love and to ALWAYS be grateful for you generosity! Amen!!

Thank you, Mike!! Cathy

The picture is magnificent.

I love the Lord but I fear Him at the same time. I know if I step out of line He will correct me. I also know all my riches are blessings from Him.

God Bless you Mike for all your wonderful posts.
