What To Do

 

Whatever your hands
find to do
do with all
your might

and I will keep
supplying you
with what is good
and right.

A laid down life is given good things to do.

“Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might.” Ecclesiates 9:10 NKJV

Stay

 

Stay
awhile with Me
and good will
come from it

My Spirit.

Not Everything

 

Don’t take to heart
everything
that you hear
people say

remembering your lips
also
have at times
strayed.

A laid down life holds the words of others lightly.

“Also do not take to heart everything people say, lest you hear your servant cursing you. For many times, also, your own heart has known that even you have cursed others.” Ecclesiates 7:21,22 NKJV

Grief and Sorrow

 

Do not seek wisdom
just to be wise
or knowledge
to be smart

but let Me guide you
in all these things
adding understanding
to your heart.

in the truth

loving the brethren
and strangers
faithfully doing
what you can do.

In Truth and Love

 

Grace, mercy and peace
you have from Me
for you are in
the truth

walking in love
for one another
just as I
commanded you.

A laid down life abides in truth and love.

“To the elect lady and her children, whom I love in truth, and not only I, but also all those who have known the truth, because of the truth which abides in us and will be with us forever. Grace, mercy and peace will be with you from God the Father and from the LORD Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love. And now I plead with you , lady, not as though I write a new commandment to you, but that which we have had from the beginning; that we love one another. This is love, that we walk according to His commandments. This is the commandment, that as you have heard from the beginning you should walk in it.” 2 John 1,2,3,5,6 NKJV
