You In Me

“At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.” John 14:20 NKJV

“I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me.”  John 14:30 NKJV

He has us covered.

Thank you, Lord, for making it possible for us to be in You and for You to be in us.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

You in we
and we in You

You in the Father
means us too

and though the ruler
of this world comes

he has nothing in You -
we’re in You, we’re one.

God bless you as you abide in Him today!

This Hour

“Now My soul is troubled, and what shall I say?  Father save Me from this hour?  But for this purpose I came to this hour.”  John 12:27 NKJV

Now My soul
is troubled

and what
shall I say?

Father, save Me

He Loves

I sometimes forget how very much He loves us . . .loves me.

Thank You, Lord, for loving us always.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

We are the ones, Lord
the ones that You love

the ones that are sick
that You constantly think of

the ones that You made
and know inside and out

the ones who”ll bring You glory
as You call us to come out!

God bless you, the one whom He loves!

Sheep

“And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice.”  John 10:4 NKJV

“Then Jesus said to them again, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.’ ” John 10:7 NKJV

“If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.”  John 10:9 NKJV

We know His voice and follow HIm.

Thank You, Lord, for laying down Your life for us.  And here’s a simple poem  . . .

We are His sheep
and know His voice

where He leads
we will follow

for our Good Shepherd
is the door

through whcih we go
to the Father.

God bless you as you hear and follow Him today!

I Believe

“Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when He had found him, He said to him, ‘Do you believe in the Son of God?’ “
“He answered and said, ‘Who is He, Lord, that I may believe in Him?’ “
“And Jesus said to him, ‘You have both seen Him and it is He who is talking with you.’ “
“Then he said, ‘Lord, I believe!’ And he worshiped Him.”  John 9:35-38 NKJV

Worshiping Him naturally follows believing Him.

Thank You, Lord, for opening my eyes to You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Only One
could open

my eyes
that didn’t see

blind from birth
now I worship You

reborn
now I believe.

God bless you as you believe and worship Him today!

He Came Again

 

 

“But early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came to Him, and He sat down and taught them.”  John 8:2  NKJV

Nothing kept Jesus from doing what He came to do.

Thank You, Lord, for coming to us and staying with us.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

You come to us
and stay with us
throughout the day
and night.

You sit with us
and reveal to us
how to walk in Your
marvelous light.

God bless you as He sits with you today!

For Whoever Steps In

“For an angel went down at a certain time into the pool and stirred up the water; then whoever stepped in first, after the stirring of the water, was made well of whatever disease he had.”  John 5:4

How heartbreaking it must’ve been to be beside this pool but never able to enter in.

Thank You, Lord, for unlimited access to Your healing waters.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Enter into
my living water

if you desire
to be made well

stirred constantly
by My Spirit

healing is
perpetual.

God bless you as you enter in today.
