Now let me sing to my Well-beloved a song of my Beloved regarding His vineyard: my Well-beloved has a vineyard on a very fruitful hill. He dug it up and cleared out its stones, and planted it with the choicest vine. He built a tower in its midst, and also made a winepress in it; so He expected it to bring forth good grapes, but it brought forth wild grapes (Isaiah 5:1-2 NKJV)
Ya know as someone who is a mental health advocate, I’ve come across many hurting people. People who think that no one loves them or that there is nothing here for them. But that can be farther from the truth.
You see that vineyard?
No possession is dearer to a man than a vineyard, and there is none that demands more constant and persevering toil…. (UNKNOWN)
We are that vineyard. We are that precious piece of land to the Lord. He wants to protect us and cause us to grow and flourish.
Just like any vinedresser (I think thats what they are called), when they see a struggling branch (or is it called vine?). Anyways, if a vinedresser sees a struggling vine they would splice it with another flourishing vine.
If you are struggling; mentally, physically or spiritually (Im not missing any right?) – God wants to splice you to a good church, friend, loved one.
You see that feeling of wanting to be alone? Well, that is not of God.
18 And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.” (Gen 2:18 NKJV)
Yes, that applies to when God made Adam and Eve – but its true. Even look at secular (non-Christian) Scientists. There have been several studies where its proven man (or woman) need human interaction.
The enemy wants us to be alone. So when you are feeling down and out and wanting to be alone? Don’t. Join me and fight it.
