RE: the RE

“Then Jesus called His disciples to Him and said, ‘. . .I do not want to send them away hungry, lest they faint along the way.'”  Matthew 15:32
“Then His disciples said to Him, ‘Where could we get enough bread in the wilderness to fill such a great multitude.'”  Matthew 15:33

It hadn’t been that long ago when the same scenario had taken place and Jesus had fed the five thousand.

Oh Lord, thank You for Your patience and understanding of my ability to forget and not fully grasp.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

What I Thought I Received

In my humanness
I too often forget
and need repetition
for lessons to stick.

In Your Holiness
You always repeat
what I need to relearn
when I stay at Your feet.


  1. Deb, What an encouraging poem! There are some big lessons I thought I had learned from Him, or at least I should have them down pat by now, but then I find myself behaving has if I had never learned the lesson in the first place. I am so thankful that He patiently teaches me again and again. Peace, Linda

  2. I feel the same way! but then I thought of this too . . .it keeps us humble and before Him . .. a lot. 🙂 thank you, Linda!

  3. God i am amazed at how much you love us.
    Isn’t this what is all about,
    You teaching me patiently and repeatedly
    despite the sometimes reluctant student in me?
