It is up to me
to receive, believe

no one else
can do it for me

so I pray
my eyes to see

and my ears to hear
continually .

***********

You establish what I hear and see.

“Therefore let it be known to you that the salvation of God has been sent to the Gentiles, and they will hear it.” Acts 28:28 NKJV

I Stand

 

Only by Your help
do I stand

and am able to
give witness

that You suffered
then rose from the dead

bringing light into
our darkness.

********

You establish my standing.

*********

“Therefore, having obtained help from God, to this day I stand, witnessing both to small and great, saying no other things than those which the prophets and Moses said would come – that the Christ would suffer, that He would be the first to rise from the dead, and would proclaim light to the Jewish people and to the Gentiles.” Acts 26:22,23 NKJV

“For there stood by me this night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve,
saying, ‘Do not be afraid, Paul; you must be brought before Caesar; and indeed God has granted you all those who sail with you.’ ”  Acts 27:23-24 NKJV

Paul must’ve been praying for everyone on board.

Thank You, Lord, for knowing how very much we want those sailing with us to be saved.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

We have a God
who saves us

gives us purpose
and sees us through

and even those
who are with us

will be shown
great mercy too.

God bless you and those with you today!

Affirmed To Be Alive

“When the accusers stood up, they brought no accusation against him of such things as I supposed,
but had some questions against him about their own religion and about one, Jesus, who had died, whom Paul affirmed to be alive.”  Acts 25:18-19 NKJV

We can affirm He is alive too.

Thank You, Lord, for being our risen Savior.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

that he could kill You

but we affirm
You are alive

living strong
inside each of us

risen to
Your Father’s side.

God bless you as you celebrate Jesus today!
