God’s Landscaping Business

This is a follow-up to my poem “The Swamp” that I posted a couple of days ago.

A good friend, Naggie, texted me yesterday morning.  When I received her text, my eyes just about popped out, and I had to call her to find out more about it.  She hadn’t read my poem, and she had heard this from God on Monday but didn’t send it until Thursday.   Here goes:

Oh Jo, I got a prophetic word for you … It is that God will “fill in the pit”, that you will never trip back in, slide back in, jump back in, stumble back in … But instead rejoice and be glad and jump on top of the filled in pit … Knowing that He IS the victory!  He is victorious!  He has conquered and you just get to dance on top of the pit that no longer exists as He has filled it in!!


Ever since I was a teenager I’ve been in and out of depression, up and down, back and forth.  Even in the good times I wonder when it’s coming back.  In the bad times it feels like I’ve always been there.  I have seen it in my mind’s eye as walking through a field of pits, never knowing when the next one is coming up, doing my best to stay away from the edge, but somehow unable to keep away as circumstances push me in.

And now God’s saying that…

Those pits are going to be filled in!

I’m not going to live in fear of depression anymore.  He’s changing the landscape.  He’s God, and He can do that.

Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain.
Isaiah 40 verse 4

For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.

Isaiah 43 verse 19

Here’s a little bit of Handel’s Messiah, because great words deserve great music.

  2. I bought a new Bible on Saturday, Jo.
    I already had two old Bibles. One given to me by a neighbour. And the other was a tiny New Testament (pocket size).
    I went into a bookshop on Saturday looking for something new to read but this lonely looking Bible caught my eye. It has everything laid out in daily readings corresponding with dates on the calendar. So there is a page or two to be read every day of the year.
    Hopefully it will help me understand better.
    Your post above is great. Nice to get that reassurance from God. Mind blowing!
    Keep up the good work. 🙂

    • I hope you enjoy the new Bible. Sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. I use a plan which swaps between books so that there’s a lot of variety. But sometimes I forget which chapter is next when I haven’t read it for a while.
      It is mind-blowing that He would do this, but then I guess He loves us all a lot more than we realise!
