mo' persistent prophet:jeremiah 36

Hidden by the Lord.

“But the king commanded Jerahmeel the son of Hammelech, and Seraiah the son of Azriel, and Shelemiah the son of Abdeel, to take Baruch the scribe and Jeremiah the prophet: but the Lord hid them.

Then took Jeremiah another roll, and gave it to Baruch the scribe, the son of Neriah; who wrote therein from the mouth of Jeremiah all the words of the book which Jehoiakim king of Judah had burned in the fire: and there were added besides unto them many like words.”
Jeremiah 36:26, 32 KJV

Planting Mercy

shellflower

“I received a surprise package from Sarah Winnemucca. She enclosed a signed watercolor of shell ginger and told of plans to travel north to teach Paiute children. She also enclosed several rhizomes for us to plant. I didn’t think they would survive the Pennsylvania winter, but Cream insisted, so we planted a few in the woods, and potted a few inside near a window.”

“And I will strengthen the house of Judah, and I will save the house of Joseph, and I will bring them again to place them; for I have mercy upon them: and they shall be as though I had not cast them off: for I am the Lord their God, and will hear them.

And I will strengthen them in the Lord; and they shall walk up and down in his name, saith the Lord.”
Zechariah 10:6, 12 KJV

For they all made us afraid, saying, Their hands shall be weakened from the work, that it be not done. Now therefore, O God, strengthen my hands.”
Nehemiah 6:8, 9 KJV
