Upon Me

 

The Spirit of God
is upon Me

for I have been
anointed

to preach good tidings
to the poor

and heal the
broken-hearted.

**********

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me,
Because the LORD has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the broken-hearted ,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound . . .”

Isaiah 61:1. NKJV

Looking On Hearts

 

I look upon
the heart

and open up
the eyes

until the unseen
is seen

and what’s important
is magnified.

*********

You establish how to see.

“Samuel took one look at Eliab and thought, ‘Surely this is the LORD’S anointed!’ “.

“But the LOtD said to Samuel, ‘Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The LORD doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.’ “

1 Samuel 16:6-7

Returning

“Then the men who were designated by name rose up and took the captives, and from the spoil they clothed all who were naked among them, dressed them and gave them sandals, gave them food and drink, and anointed them; and they let all the feeble ones ride on donkeys.  So they brought them to their brethren at Jericho, the city of palm trees.  Then they returned to Samaria.”  2 Chronicles 28:15

I once was held captive by sin, ransacked and naked, starving and bereft of hope.

Lord, thank You for saving me, restoring me and returning me to the place I belong . . with You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Brought Back                                       

Love clothes me
and feeds me
and fills up
my flaws.
Love anoints me
and establishes me
in the presence
of all.
