Like a lion

Genesis 47: 28 -31, - 50

Today, I felt such power reading Genesis 49 the blessing of Jacob's sons.  The words that Jacob spoke to Judah were just beautiful. 
Judah, your brothers will praise you.  You will grasp your enemies by the neck.  All your relatives will bow before you.
Judah, my son, is a young lion that has finished eating its prey.  Like a lion he crouches and lies down; like a lioness-who dares to rouse him?
The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler's staff from his descendants, until the coming of the one to whom it belongs, the one whom all nations will honor.  
He ties his foal to a grapevine, the colt of his donkey to a choice vine.
He washes his clothes in wine, his robes in the blood of grapes.  
His eyes are darker than wine, and his teeth are whiter than milk.

Hope, hope, hope is found right here in these words of long ago.

Today and always, set your eyes on Jesus!

Sweet blessings,
