Groaning ?

Know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. The same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

Romans 8:22-27

Firstfruits

Father we give You our firstfruits.

Even when we are suffering we are strong because of what You are offering.

Hope, love, joy, and peace is our daily feasts.

Father we give You are firstfruits– the crops of love and florishing service.

Your Spirit within keeping us from sin.

We live by Your promises and many blessings.

Groaning inwardly waiting patiently for our ultimate deliverance.

Father we give You our firstfruits.
