Genesis: 40 ~ Joseph is forgotten

 The workday begins with a sky painted black
So many dark days...it's hard to keep track
Walking to the car with very little light
Carefully looking to my left and to my right
 Scraping off the frost from the car so I can see
Shivering from the cold, fumbling for the key
But only seconds later the sun begins to rise
Showing such glory lighting up the skies
 I only have a minute before I rush inside
Another day to punch the clock, my thirst is set aside
I thirst for you, dear God, to spend some time with you
I only pray to find the time before my day is through!

Nature by God
Poem by Judy

My new blog The Chapter Challenge is dedicated to reading the Bible cover to cover one chapter at a time.  Some how I ended up after several tries (Blogger kept sending me error messages and closing) to post on that particular blog, back on this one, so here is my synopsis of Genesis 40 as found in the New American Bible:

Joseph became trusted by his jailers and was placed in a position of authority. Two men who had worked for the pharaoh and offended him were recently arrested and assigned under him in the jail.  As he was attending them he noticed that they looked troubled. After he spoke to them, they confided in Joseph that they had been troubled by dreams and he responded that dreams were from God so could be interpreted by Him and he would seek God's advice to help them find the meanings. He interpreted their dreams and was promised that he would be remembered to Pharaoh and his freedom sought. 

Both men were freed, one given back his position and the other put to death just as Joseph had advised them according to the dreams that God had given to them. The men forgot all about Joseph doing them the favors.

This post linked to Skywatch Friday. Thanks so much for visiting me today. May God richly bless you and the reading of His word.

I loved the poem and the pics. The problem I had with Daylight Savings Time ending was the fact that it is so dark in the morning, but your pics are breathtaking.

What a glorious sunrise Judy. I really like the last one, it looks like the sun is pushing the clouds out of the way. I loved your poem.
