We are not waiting
for nothing

for only more pain
and emptiness

for we have a God
who loves us

who always keeps
His promises.

Our Thoughts

 

I will keep those
in perfect peace

whose minds are
fixed on Me

who build their thoughts
upon My truth

tearing down lies of
the enemy.

**********

My thoughts can be of You because You are with me.

**********

“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.” Isaiah 26:3 NKJV

“For thus says the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel: ‘In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and confidence shall be your strength, but you would not.’ ” Isaiah 30:15 NKJV

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy – meditate on these things.” Philippians 4:6-8 NKJV

“For this is what the Master, the Lord, the Holy One of Israel says . . .” Isaiah 30:15 NET

“Why do you say, O Jacob, and speak, O Israel: ‘My way is hidden from the LORD, and my just claims passed over by my God’? Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength.”  Isaiah 40:27-29 NKJV

Healing In His Words

 

Please speak Your words
of correction

as they are healing
to my life

for I know
You love me

and lead me to
what’s right.

**********

Because You are with me and love me, You speak words of correction to me, that I may be healed.

“Now go, write it before them on a tablet, and note it on a scroll, that it may be for a time to come, forever and ever: that this is a rebellious people, lying children, children who will not hear the law of the LORD; who say to the seers, ‘Do not see,’ and to the prophets, ‘Do not prophesy to us right things; speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits. Get out of the way, turn aside from the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.’ “. Isaiah 30:8-11 NKJV

“This is what the Sovereign Lord. The Holy One of Israel, says: ‘In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it.’ ” Isaiah 30:15 NIV

“I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preqch the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.” 2 Timothy 4:1-4 NKJV

“And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God and God in him. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment.” 1 John 4:16,18

“Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help, and rely on horses, who trust in chariots because they are many, and in horsemen because they are very strong, but who do not look to the Holy One of Israel, nor seek the LORD!” Isaiah 31:1 NKJV

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 NKJV

Facing It

 

Lord help me face
the reality

of where my sin
has led

repenting of
my own ways

waiting on You
instead.

***********

You are with me so I can face the truth of my situation.

***********

“In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and confidence shall be your strength. But you would not.”

“And you said, ‘No, for we will flee on horses’ – “

Isaiah 30:15,16. NKJV
