Looking To The Lord

“Behold, as the eyes of servants look
to the hand of their masters . . .
So our eyes look to the LORD our
God,
Until He has mercy on us.”  Psalm 123:2

Have you ever observed a devoted dog with its owner, how they watch their master’s every move?

Lord, there is no where else to look, but to You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Your Mercy

Because of Your mercy
You came for us

suffered and died
upon a cross.

Because of Your mercy
You rose again

so we can live
without end.

  1. When our eyes are on Him they can be no where else or on no one else.

  2. Hallelujah! When I read these words Sis Deb, a song arose in my spirit!

    Because of Your mercy
    You rose again

    so we can live
    without end.

    He is risen! Hallelujah!

  3. Good morning and thank you.

    Your website is an inspiration and an encourager for me.

    The mercy of God is indescribable. I am reminded of a passage in Exodus, where God is talking to Moses and Moses asks to see his glory. God is not angry at Moses. He doesn’t put him down for making such a request. Instead he tells Moses, I” will make my goodness pass before you and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before you.” And God does it and He proclaimed, “The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, long suffering and abundance in goodness and truth.

    I had never seen the fact that the LORD proclaimed his own goodness as He passed before Moses, and it was an eye opener for me. God is the LORD and even He cannot deny that He is merciful. There is no shadow within him.

    I live as an expatriate on the European Continent. It is refreshing to wake up every morning and read the word given to you and your poetry glorifying God. I don’t always leave a message but rest assured you are in my prayers, and I follow you. I am looking at your walk with the LORD, and there is a big smile on my face, because I have met a fellow traveler.

    Be blessed today and as you celebrate the death and resurrection of our LORD Jesus Christ, continue to proclaim from your heart, “Jesus is the LORD. He is merciful and gracious, long suffering and abundant in goodness and truth, Jesus is the LORD.

    Love you, Debbie.

    Shalom

  4. What a wonderful reminder of the Lord and His gracious works on our behalf. May we all take this posting and meditate upon it as we enter into the Easter weekend. Lord bless you Deb.

  5. Reblogged this on My Delight and My Counsellors.

  6. thank you Debbie for sharing with me today

  7. One word AMEN!

  8. Yes! His mercy makes us free indeed. Thanks for sharing Debbie

  9. Your poem reminded me that God couldn’t save us by “love”. We’re lost sinners…and God still loves us…but the love of God can’t bring us into heaven. God had to provide a salvation…and He paid the penalty for our sins. Now a God of love can reach out His hands to a lost world and say…”If you will believe in My Son…because He died for you…I can save you.” Thankyou for reminding me that God saves us by His grace and mercy:-)

  33. I like the illustration of a devoted dog looking at his master. I think of a young baby, completely helpless of himself, but looking into his mother’s eyes with complete confidence, with no doubt that she will fix the problem. I have to think that memories of “talking” with my young babies are the choicest of all memories and a constant reminder of my relationship with my Father God. I am helpless, but looking to Him brings confidence.

    What an incredibly amazing God!

  34. A young baby looking into his mother’s eyes is a great reminder of our relationship with Father God indeed, Mentor Angela! Thank you for helping us to always look to Him! God bless you and yours!
