Harvest Joy reminds us to persist in our labors for the harvest will surely come bringing with it joy and abundance.
- Psalm 126:6 (VOICE) Those who weep as they walk and plant with sighs Will return singing with joy, when they bring home the harvest.
- Psalm 30:4-5 (VOICE) Sing, all you who remain faithful! Pour out your hearts to the Eternal with praise and melodies; let grateful music fill the air and bless His name. His wrath, you see, is fleeting, but His grace lasts a lifetime. The deepest pains may linger through the night, but joy greets the soul with the smile of morning.
A Prophetic Nugget from Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Ministries is connected to this. It’s called “The Coming Harvest.”
Psalm 126:6 (VOICE) Those who weep as they walk and plant with sighs Will return singing with joy, when they bring home the harvest.
Beloved, I have seen your tearful sowing and know well the cost and your pain. But just as I have assured you that “Weeping may go on all night, but in the morning there is joy.*” So you may also be encouraged that harvest will surely come.
I will not be mocked, that which you sow you shall most surely reap, so sow with wisdom and intention – knowing the cost is well worth the multiplication that is to come.
*Psalm 30:5 (TLB)
Another Prophetic Nugget from Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Ministries is connected to this. It’s called “Stay the Course.”
Psalm 30:5 (VOICE) His wrath, you see, is fleeting, but His grace lasts a lifetime. The deepest pains may linger through the night, but joy greets the soul with the smile of morning.
Beloved, though the seasons of labor may seem endless, and the tears of hardship feel overwhelming, rest in the truth that your labor is not in vain. Stay the course with tenacious intention, and wait in steadfast expectancy for the harvest to come bringing with it much rejoicing.
Allow the stretching seasons of waiting to mold and shape your character. Stand on the promises you know to be truth and refuse to be moved. My grace is sufficient, beloved, and it is everlasting. I AM with you in both the trials and the joy, know that each season carries its own blessing and receive each one with joy.
A Mustard Seed by Larisa Chirila of Dyed4you is connected to this. It’s called “Joyful Tears.”
Psalm 126:5 (NIV) Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy.
You have sown many tears over the years and too often you can’t see if it’s harvest will actually come, but know and trust that Papa is working even when we can’t see it. The waiting time that comes after planting the seed and having to water it and having no control over the weather conditions and how they will affect the crops while they grow is not in our control. That is however, the most important time. That’s when our faith and trust in the Father grows.
Be confident and expectant that you will reap joyful tears! The tears you’ve sown will turn into joy when you finally see the harvest. Continue to sow with faith and confidence knowing that your Heavenly Father will always bring the harvest in His perfect timing! Trust in the waiting!!!
The name of your silk is Fields of Glory. The colors in it are gold representing mercy, golden brown representing beauty for ashes, harvest brown representing sowing and reaping, mahogany brown representing unity, and gold shimmer representing glory. The word that goes with this silk shares that Papa sees His children as His fields of glory. That as we reflect Him and shine brightly, we share His glory in the earth. One of the Prophetic Nuggets in the pieces challenges us to remember each of us is His handiwork. That though may seem broken we must align our visions with Him and His original design. Though the hardships of those relationships may be sown in tears and sorrow, they will be reaped in an abundant harvest of love – well worth the effort and cost.
Father, thank You for the grace to walk through the seasons of waiting for the promises and harvest yet to come. We know You are faithful and we trust You. Extend mercy to us in the moments we feel we’ve lost our strength and can’t go on, and help us to regain our strength which is found firmly in you. May the cost and the blessings to come all be for Your glory.
