Food and Medicine


Along the bank of the river, on this side and that, will grow all kinds of trees used for food; their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fail. They will bear fruit every month, because their water flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for medicine.  Ezekiel 47:12

Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. Revelation 22:1-2

Heavenly Father, We thank and praise you for all of your wonderful, perfect ways.  You never fail.  Your word is true and sure.  When we look around us at the suffering cause by the fall of this present world into sin so long ago, we marvel at how you have maintained it and there is still beauty to be found despite every rebellious effort of man to destroy himself.  Thank you for the glimpses of your glory that we see in each sunrise, sunset, rainbow, aurora borealis, cloudscape, starry sky and so many other hints we have of your incredible beauty in your amazingly creative designs.  We stand in awe, looking forward to that Day when we will see you with our eyes and serve you forever. In our Saving Redeemer, Jesus' worthy, wonderful and mighty name, Amen.
