Perish The Thought

“The desire of the wicked shall perish.”  Psalm 112:10

The goodness of God will last forever.

Lord, I want to think more about Your desires than those of the wicked.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Upon Me

Your desire
is upon me

and it will never
pass away

pure and holy
are Your plans

from everlasting
and day to day.


  1. Beautiful Poem Debbie!

  2. This was a beautiful comfort to me tonight, Sis Deb–thank you, and God bless you as you go about your Worshipful Wednesday–love, sis Caddo

  3. good job !!!

  4. Woe be to me if I should ever forget the goodness of God.

  5. What could you do to shift to an understanding of the goodness in you? How would you align this to God’s goodness?


  6. “Pure and holy are your plans” – thanks Debbie, for these words. Much-needed refreshment on a difficult day. So thankful I can hold onto God’s eternal promises in a world of temporary solutions…

  7. “Your desire
    is upon me”

    Doesn’t it just bless you to know that He, Almighty God, Elohim, Adonai, El Shaddai, El Kadosh, The Holy One of Israel, Alpha and Omega, the Ancient of Days… desires you? That He desires me? Now that is something to wrap our minds around…

    As always, your “simple poem” has given me much to ponder. Thank you for being faithful to share what Holy Spirit has laid on your heart.

    Much love to you always,

  8. Reblogged this on My Delight and My Counsellors.

  12. AMEN SIS

  13. “The desire of the wicked shall perish.” Psalm 112:10

    I wondered how this was possible. So, I checked Jamieson, Fausset & Brown’s commentary. Here’s what they said: “Disappointed in their malevolent wishes by the prosperity of the pious, the wicked are punished by the working of their evil passions which come to naught.”

    Evil will be frustrated by goodness. Wow!

    Great poem which once again stirred me to check things out. Your poems do that to me. Thanks.

    Maybe the Kentucky Derby is too big a stretch for Aub this year, but what about entering Sun and Bean in the Mouse Pinewood Derby? It looks exciting!

  14. Our God is just so good to us . . Amen and Amen . . . may His glory in all of your work continue to flow . . .

  15. spiritually uplifting and beautifully executed in its flow~ Debbie

  16. This poem is so beautiful. It is so easy to forget about the Lord when our days are busy. I am so thankful He doesn’t forget about us, and that He sends messenger like you to remind us that we are always on His mind.

  21. God bless you, Shakti! I love your questions that make me think . .even if I don’t know the answers. 🙂 So, just for me . .I don’t really want to shift to an understanding of the goodness in me. The goodness in me is Him, His Holy Spirit, and it helps me most to think about Him. Thank you for being here and blessing us!

  38. I love how He is a “day to day” God in so many ways. He doesn’t just show up on special occasions. Lovely poem, Debbie!

    Blessings ~ Wendy

  39. I love that too, Wendy. I need Him so much in the little daily things! Thank you and God bless you!

  40. You very welcome, and we can never have enough of his Blessings 🙂

  41. Oh that I could capture, focus on and hold onto the good desires of God for me without ever losing them to the swirling fear around me. Thanks for the encouragement Deb!

  42. I am praying for you and with you, Pastor J! Thank you and God bless you!

  43. In a nutshell, Debbie, as usual! His love, mercy and grace are EVER towards His blood-bought, adopted children. He watches over us, guiding us in His plans for us.

    The problem lies with US, not HIM. His thoughts are constantly toward us, but we too often get distracted and we come to grief.

    How foolish we are!
    How great and mighty is our God!

  44. You always highlight His truths and promises .. how His love, mercy and grace are ever towards us. And greater is He than the wicked and their desires. God bless you , mentor Angela, as you continuously praise His name!
