The Sure Thing

Yesterday was a full day of yard work at our ministry house. We had a team of people show up and we dug out flower beds, we made new flower beds, and we trimmed trees and bushes. Some of us recognized our age as we began to limp around the yard a little sooner than others. Our designer made curves in the flower beds and told of her vision for the yard. She brought flower bulbs to plant, and seeds. In just four hours, we saw a transformation.
I have always loved the yard at this house, its big, and the kids can easily play in it. There's a lot of trees, and there's a big wrap around deck, built by my son and husband. There's a lattice fence also built by my son and husband in the side yard that encloses a sand box, boxed gardens, a pergola, fire pit, and a rock patio. All  of these bring to me special memories of my family and people I care about. It's a place of rest and peace, not just for me but for many people.
This morning I read Isaiah 26, and this is the verse I want to share with you:

"Throw wide the gates so good people can enter.
People with their minds set on you, you keep completely whole, steady on their feet, because they keep at it and don't quit.
Depend on God and keep at it because in the Lord God you have a sure thing."

Just like the yard work, we had to keep at, and we will continue to keep at it.  Just like the ministry, the gates are wide open so good people can enter, and we will keep at it. And, my mind will be set on HIM. He will continue to keep me and all those who keep their minds on Him completely whole, steady on my feet, because quitting is not an option. Depend on God, He has promised to be a sure thing. Say That Again, God You are a sure thing!
