Scattering Good

 

My righteous
will be delivered
out of the trouble
that you know

and I will add
increase to you
as your generosity
is sown.

A laid down life has God’s favor.

“The righteous is delivered from trouble. There is one who scatters, yet increases more; and there is one who withholds more than is right, but it leads to poverty. The generous soul will be made rich, and he who waters will also be watered himself. He who diligently seeks good finds favor.” Proverbs 11:8,24,25,27 NKJV

A Well Of Life

 

 

The work of your hands
leads to life
and your mouth
is a living well

feeding many
and giving a drink
of the Good News
that you tell.

A laid down life has an everlasting foundation.

“The mouth of the righteous is a well of life. The labor of the righteous leads to life. The lips of the righteous feed many. The blessing of the LORD makes one rich, and He adds no sorrow with it. When the whirlwind passes by, the wicked is no more, but the righteous has an everlasting foundation.” Proverbs 10:11,16,21 NKJV

Ask

 

 

We all
can have wisdom
if we would
but ask

humbling ourselves
to realize
it’s something that
we lack.

A laid down life turns to God again and again and again.

“Wisdom . . . cries out from the highest places of the city, ‘whoever is simple, let him turn in here!’ As for him who lacks understanding, she says to him, ‘Forsake foolishness and live, and go in the way of understanding.’ Fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” Proverbs 9:1,3,4,6 NKJV

Better Than

 

Blessed are you
as you keep My ways
and listen to
My truth

for My wisdom and understanding
are better than wealth
and I will not
forsake you.

A laid down life listens to excellent things.

“Listen, for I will speak of excellent things, and from the opening of my lips will come right things; for my mouth will speak truth. Receive my instruction , and not silver, and knowledge rather than choice gold; for wisdom is better than rubies, and all the things one may desire cannot be compared with her. Now therefore, listen to me, my children, for blessed are those who keep my ways.” Proverbs 8:6,7,10,11,32 NKJV

Continually

 

 

I will write My word
upon your heart
for I will surely
lead you

when you’re asleep
or you’re awake
I will always
keep you.

A laid down life is led by God.

“My son, keep your father’s command, and do not forsake the law of your mother. Bind them continually upon your heart; tie them around your neck. When you roam, they will lead you; when you sleep, they will keep you; And when you awake, they will speak with you.” Proverbs 6:20,21,22 NKJV

Enraptured

 

You will be blessed
with what I give you
and rejoice in the life
you live

enraptured with
the love you find there
the beauty and grace
that exists.

A laid down life is enraptured by God’s love.

“Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice with the wife of your youth. As a loving deer and graceful doe . . .always be enraptured with her love.” Proverbs 5:18,19 NKJV

Life

 

Just as I
incline to you
so you
incline to Me

to keep My words
within your heart
for they are life
when you believe.

A laid down life finds life in God’s word.

“My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh.” Proverbs 4:20,21,22

Paths Of Peace

 

Ask Me for wisdom
and understanding
and I will give them
to you

adding paths of peace
and pleasantness
and grace to see
you through.

A laid down life is given the confidence of God.

“Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. Do not be afraid of sudden terror, nor of trouble from the wicked when it comes; for the LORD will be your confidence , and will keep your foot from being caught. He . . .gives grace to the humble.” Proverbs 3:13,17,25,26,34 NKJV

Stored Up Wisdom

 

As you
receive My word
and treasure
My command

you will find
the knowledge of God
your heart will
understand.

“My son, if your receive my words , and treasure my commands within you, so that you incline your ear to wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding; then you will understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding; He stores up sound wisdom for the upright.” Proverbs 2:1,2,5,6
