Going green for Jeff Boyer
Aug 23, 2008

To the beloved of Christ,
While in Minneapolis I received this from the person who edited my book... I think you will alll
Jer. 17:7-8  Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lordand whose hope is the Lord
      For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its roots by the river,
      And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be GREEN,
      And will not be anxious in the year of drought, nor will cease from yielding fruit. 
I've decided to go green. I have been planted by the river of life. My root system is spread out so that I can capture all the life-giving moisture. So my leaves will stay green even when the heat bears down on me. Others may be withering under the strain of drought, but I will not be affected or have a second thought about it. My focus will be on yielding fruit. In fact, many will come and enjoy the shade of my leaves and eat of my fruit to sustain them. 
Song of Solomon 1:16  Behold, you are handsome, my beloved! Yes, pleasant! Also our bed (couch) is green and leafy.
Song of Solomon is a picture of the intimate relationship between a bride and bridegroom on one level, and THE bride (us) and THE bridegroom (Jesus) on another level. Intimacy with our Lord needs to be green--vibrant, fresh, flourishing, bursting with life. Cultivate your relationship with Him. Keep your leaf green and the heat and drought will not bother you.
SAVE THE PLANET. Go into all the world and preach salvation from destruction.
DO NOT WASTE PRECIOUS RESOURCES. Time is a precious resource and we don't have much left of it. Redeem the time, for the days are evil (Eph. 5:16).
Ps. 23:2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside still waters.
I want to be environmentally friendly. My environment is the kingdom of God where the pastures are always green.

About: I am a christian woman who loves the Lord with all her heart and soul, and strives to love my neighbor as myself. I thank Him for His death, burial and resurrection, for the work of the cross and His precious blood that he shed for me and you on Calvary, that washed all of our sins away forever. The word of God says "Let the redemed of the Lord say so" I am one of the redemed and I'm not afraid nor am I ashamed to say so!. I give God all the glory and all the praise for all that He has, is, and will become in my life, It's because of Jesus that I am saved TODAY, AND I PRAISE HIM!
