When I Fall

“When I fall, I will arise,
When I sit in darkness,
The Lord will be a light to me.”   Micah 7:8 NKJV

When I fall and/or sit in darkness, the temptation is to think it is a permanent place.

Thank You, Jesus, for rising out of that dark tomb and reminding me that things aren’t always as they seem, because You are here.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Though I sit
in the darkness
it is Your light
I will yet see

and when I walk
through the valley
it’s under Your shadow
that I’ll be.

God bless you as you arise with Him today!

“How Have I Wearied You?”

“Oh My people, what have I done to you?
And how have I wearied you?
Testify against Me.”  Micah 6:3

“For I brought you up out of the land of Egypt,
I redeemed you from the house of bondage;
And I sent before you Moses, Aaron and Miriam.”  Micah 6:4 NKJV

If I feel weary, it’s time to turn to God.

Thank You, Lord, for delivering me out of wearisome places and giving me rest.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

If I’m
feeling weary
and the opposite
of blessed

let me turn
to You, Lord
for deliverance
and rest.

God bless you and give you rest!

This One

“And He shall stand and feed His flock
In the strength of the Lord,
In the majesty of the name of the Lord His God;
And they shall abide,
For now He shall be great
To the ends of the earth,
And this One shall be peace.”  Micah 5:4

I have been extra hungry lately.

Thank You, Jesus, for feeding me in the strength and majesty of Your name.  And here’s a simple poem  . . .

And He shall stand
and feed His flock
in the majesty and greatness
of the Lord.

And they shall abide
in His presence
filled with peace
and of One accord.

God bless you as He feeds you today!

Be In Pain and Labor

“Be in pain, and labor to bring forth;
O daughter of Zion,
Like a woman in birth pangs.”  Micah 4:10

Mothers know that the pain and labor are worth it.

Thank You, Lord, for leading me through the painful times that bring forth new joy.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

This feels too hard
and painful
though I know
that You love me.

Please strengthen me
to give birth to
all You desire
yet to be.

God bless you and encourage you during the painful times!

For Money

“. . .her heads judge for a bribe,
Her priests teach for pay,
And her prophets divine for money.”  Micah 3:11

It’s hard for me to not desire money.

Thank You, Jesus, for continuing to teach me to desire You more.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Let there be nothing
that I won’t do
simply because
You will me to

not for money
or recognition
but out of love
and sanctification.

God bless you as you desire Him more and more!

“Do Not My Words Do Good?”

“Is the Spirit of the Lord restricted”
Are these His doings?
Do not My words do good
To him who walks uprightly?”  Micah 2:7

God’s message to me may be one hard to hear and come from someone I don’t even know.

Thank You, God, for Your word that does good.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

My Spirit
can’t be restricted
it must go
where it may

doing good
through My words
wherever they’re
received today.

God bless you as His Word does good in you today!

Uncovered

“. . .And I will uncover her foundations.

All her carved images shall be beaten to pieces . . .”  Micah 1:6-7

Micah was pronouncing the coming judgement on Israel.

Thank You, Father, for uncovering areas of my life that I need to confess and ask forgiveness for.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Uncover my
foundations
break in pieces
what You find

if it is not
of You, Lord
but of myself
and pride.

God bless you as you allow Him to uncover your heart today!
