Sometimes on the farm, well many times,…

Sometimes on the farm, well many times, things don’t go as planned. Sometimes when bad things happen, we may question our Creator on why it happened? We may ask ourselves if we have stepped out of His will, or are we being punished?

Three weeks ago here at Safe Haven Heirloom Farms, our chickens suffered a devastating end as FORTY of them were killed by an animal. Truthfully, our dog here on the farm looked guilty, and we thought we saw some fur tangled in the fence, but then some neighbors said they have had problems with packs of coyotes. Our family dog was questioned that morning yet without DNA evidence, was released on his own recognizance. We can be a little witty now, but we assure you, there was nothing humorous about the loss of our flock at the time. So why did this happen?

The electric fence was not turned on that night. Yes, by our own admission, we let our guard down. There is spiritual application to everything that happens to us in our daily lives. First Corinthians 16:13 tells us “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.” Be on guard? How can we better do that? How can we protect ourselves from any would be predators that come to destroy? Romans 13:12 says “The night is almost gone, and the day is near. Therefore let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.” We love that imagery and it is pretty straight forward on what we should do. The Torah, His scriptures, are our armor of light, and we must read it, study, and know His word so we are guarded by it. Have a great weekend! Shalom and GIT Growing!
