with strength and honor

your mouth

it will be in wisdom
and on your tongue
the law of kindness
will come out.

You Shall Have Enough


Earthly riches
are not forever
and a man made crown
endures just so long

but My presence
is for now and always
and My provision
goes on and on.

A laid down life has enough.

“Be diligent to know the state of your fields, and attend to your herds; for riches are not forever, nor does a crown endure to all generations. The lambs will provide your clothing, and the goats the price of a field; you shall have enough goats milk for your food, for the food of your household, and the nourishment of your maidservants.” Proverbs 27:23,24,26,27 NKJV

Do not be quick
to tell tales
that only add
to strife

but carefully
choose your words
so that they’re full
of life.

A laid down life kindles life.

“Where there is no wood, the fire goes out; and where there is no tale bearer, strife ceases. As charcoal is to burning coals, and wood to fire, so is a contentious man to kindle strife. The words of a tale bearer are like tasty triffles, and they go down into the inmost body.” Proverbs 26:20,21,22 NKJV

Place your heart
in My hands
that I may turn
and weigh it

searching all
the inner depths
shining My life
within it.

A laid down life’s heart is in God’s hand.

“The spirit of a man is the lamp of the LORD, searching all the inner depths of his heart. The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes. Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but the LORD weighs the heart.” Proverbs 20:27 and 21:1,2 NKJV

I am watching
always watching
and see
the good you do

turning away wrath
with soft answers
and a pure
heart too.

His Delight


I delight in
your honesty
and by truth
you shall be set

established forever
and satisfied by
the fruit of
your lips.

A laid down life is established forever.

“A man will be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth, and the recompense of a man’s hands will be rendered to him.
