“And he blessed them; he blessed each one according to his own blessing.” Genesis 49:28 NKJV
This is one of the last things Jacob did before he died . .he blessed others.
Thank You, Lord, for thinking of us as You hung on the cross. And here’s a simple poem . . .
Thank You, Lord
for blessing me
every time I
think of You
for flooding me
with Your presence
the way only You
God blesses you today!
I just can’t get this out of my mind and heart, so wanted to share it with you today. Please give a listen!
Each Tuesday I pray and fast for nations where Christians suffer the worst persecution around the world. This week I am praying and fasting for:
India. 1.3 billion people with 59 million Christians.
The oppressive caste system is blocking social mobility. Economic wealth is unevenly distributed. A new Hindu government (in power since May 2014 and led by Hindu hardliner Narendra Modi) is radicalizing society. All traditions of Christianity are affected by persecution in India, but Christian converts from a Hindu background and non-traditional Protestant groups are suffering most. At the top level the influence of fundamentalist Hindus has increased. Hindu radicals have started monitoring Christian activity in much detail. Many of them have planted spies in churches. Reports on pastors and church members beaten because of allegations of conversion are frequent; sometimes Christians are even killed. (World Watch List)

shall I say?
Father, save Me
from this hour?
But for Your purpose
I came. . .

“For an angel went down at a certain time into the pool and stirred up the water; then whoever stepped in first, after the stirring of the water, was made well of whatever disease he had.” John 5:4
How heartbreaking it must’ve been to be beside this pool but never able to enter in.
Thank You, Lord, for unlimited access to Your healing waters. And here’s a simple poem . . .
my living water
if you desire
to be made well
by My Spirit
God bless you as you enter in today.
“Behold, the Man whose name is the BRANCH!
From His place He shall branch out;
And He shall build the temple of the LORD;
Yes, He shall build the temple of the LORD.
He shall bear the glory,
and shall sit and rule on His throne . . .” Zechariah 6:12-13
Branches reach out.
Thank You, Lord, for reaching out and building Your temple inside of us. And here’s a simple poem. . .

who can build the temple
and carry all the glory
that You bear
while You reign and rule
upon Your throne
yet reach out to us
God bless you as He branches out into your life!

that ever keeps me
You are always here

“It is like a man going into a far country, who left his house and gave authority to his servants, and to each his work, and commanded the door keeper to watch.” Mark 13:34 NKJV

I can learn about watching from dogs as they look so diligently and eagerly for their master’s return.
Thank You, Lord, for the promise of Your return. And here’s a simple poem . . .
Please help me watch
and not grow weary
and not yet faint
as the signs
of the time unravel
and Your coming glory
God bless you as you watch!

Thank You, Lord, for growing good things in us. Thank You for having all the grace and knowledge we need to grow in. Plant me in the soil of Your grace. And here’s a simple poem . . .
Let me not grow
but in the knowledge
and grace of You, Lord
that You might receive
all the glory
and be the One
my life points toward.
Have a blessed day! 🙂
