The Hidden Things

 

You will come
and bring to light

the hidden things
of darkness

revealing counsels
of the hearts

being the One
who praises.

**********

You are with me and know me.

**********

“For I know nothing against myself, yet I am not justified by this; but He who judges me is the Lord.”

“Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts; and then each one’s praise will come from God.”

1 Corinthians 4:4,5 NKJV

No Other Foundation

 

You are my sure
foundation

the only one I can
build upon

with works that
are worthy

of God’s Holy
Son.

**********

You are with me as a sure foundation.

**********

“For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”

“Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw,”

“each one’s work will become manifest; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is.”

1 Corinthians 3:11,12,13 NKJV

The Mind Of Christ

 

For we have
the Spirit of God

and the mind
of Christ

to know the things
we’ve been freely given

to know Him and Him
crucified.

**********

You are with me and give me Your Spirit so I can know You.

**********

“For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.”

“Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.”

“For ‘who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?’ But we have the mind of Christ.”

1 Corinthians 2:2,12,16. NKJV. / Isaiah 40:13 NKJV

Glory In The Lord

 

In Your presence
there can be no glory
of anything of
the flesh

for its You
who give me wisdom
redemption and
righteousness.

**********

You are with me and are my glory.

**********

“For you see your calling brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called.”

“. . . that no flesh should glory in His presence.”

“But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God – and righteousness and sanctification and redemption -“

“that, as it is written, ‘He who glories, let him glory in the LORD.’ “

1 Corinthians 1:26,29,30,31  NKJV   /    Jeremiah 9:34  NKJV

Weakness

the empty donut box

aliens?

 

Donuts are not my only weakness.

 

“But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence.” 1 Corinthians 1:27-29 NJKV

Open Doors and Adversaries

“But I will tarry in Ephesus until Pentecost.
For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.” 1 Corinthians 16:8-9

Beginning to see how open doors and adversaries go hand-in-hand.

Lord, please show us how to stand and not be afraid of the attacks and the tactics that come against us this day. And here is a simple poem . . .

Woe Is Not Me

Beginning to see more and more
just what’s going on
and I’m not about to crumble
into some sad sob song.

Woe, woe is not me
no, I’m not giving in
ready to fight today
standing strong in Him.

“I Am What I Am”

“But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.” 1 Corinthians 15:10

I am one of those in whom the grace of God has had to work more abundantly.

Oh Lord, I pray Your grace has its way in me more and more. And here’s a simple poem . . .

The Grace Miracle

I am what I am
by the grace of Thee
and what I once was
is disappearing
though I don’t deserve it
You keep blessing me
pouring out Your love
working miraculously.

Tongue Utterings

“For if the trumpet makes an uncertain sound, who will prepare himself for battle?” 1 Corinthians 14:8
“So likewise you, unless you utter by the tongue words easy to understand, how will it be known what is spoken? For you will be speaking into the air.” 1 Corinthians 14:9

When my youngest gets upset, she makes up words or puts words together in ways that don’t make sense. I have to wait for her to calm down in order to understand her.

Lord, please help me share You today with others in a way they understand. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Words That Edify

Whatever is on my mind
I can speak into the air

and though it feels good to me
there’s no use for it there

so I’ll submit to You, Lord
and ask for the words on my tongue

to be ones that edify
Your work being done.

Love Suffers

“Love suffers long and is kind.” 1 Corinthians 13:4

Love . . .suffers.

Thank You, Lord, for showing me what love is and what it does. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Love Shows

The ad shows diamonds
beaches, beds
muscles, curves, skin
long lingering looks
excitement
while

a rejected cornerstone
Golgotha, nails
stripped, torn flesh, blood
hanging long hours
shows
love.
