“It will be like a dream
when the Lord comes back with the captives of Zion.
We will laugh and sing happy songs!
Then the other nations will say,
“The Lord did a great thing for Zion!”
Yes, we will be happy
because the Lord did a great thing for us.
So, Lord, bring back the good times,
like a desert stream filled again with flowing water.
Then those who were sad when they planted
will be happy when they gather the harvest!
Those who cried as they carried the seeds
will be happy when they bring in the crops!” (Ps 126)
This is the time for your captivity to end!
This is the time for your mouth to be filled with songs and laughter!
For you that have sown with tears, faithfully over the years!
This is the time to reap a great harvest of joy!
I see you coming back to the place they have rejected you… the Holy Wind blowing…your white dress flowing… your arms heavy with the sheaves of unexpected blessings from unexpected places…Yes, this is the time!
In Christ I declare:
No more delay!
This is the time for my harvest of blessings!
In Jesus name,
