Eat The Fruit Of Faith

1 Kings 19:1-5  Elijah Flees From Jezebel

1  Now Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword.

2  Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, “So may the gods do to me and even more, if I do not make your life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time.”

3  And he was afraid and arose and ran for his life and came to Beersheba, which belongs to Judah, and left his servant there.

4  But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree; and he requested for himself that he might die, and said, “It is enough; now, O LORD, take my life,  for I am not better than my fathers.”

5  He lay down and slept under a juniper tree; and behold, there was an angel touching him and he said to him, “Arise, eat.”

Lady Juniper

16 July 2012

Is a lovely stalwart,
A haven for flying creatures,
Spring, summer, fall, and winter.

A windbreak for newlyweds,
She’s such a protector,
Her scent so aromatic,
And in sunshine and warmth,
Rings redolence.

Her fine spines afford safety,
Sharp needles a deterrence,
She’s been with me these 9 years,
A border to my residence.

I love her blue berries
Plentiful in bunches.
They give her such beauty
Small angled spheres,
A textural interest.

When faith is at hand
She provides peace,
And God descends,
To a weary traveler.
