Reduced

“The Lord will be awesome to them,
For He will reduce to nothing all the gods of the earth;
People shall worship Him,
Each one from his place,
Indeed all the shores of the nations.”  Zephaniah 2:11

Too often I have made a god of myself.

Thank You, Lord, for reducing the me in me to nothing, so I can worship You. And here’s a simple poem . . .

I will reduce to nothing
all the gods of the earth
of which you yourself
are one

so you can worship
in spirit and truth
from your brokenness
completely undone.

God bless you as He is awesome to you today!

Awesome

“Holy and awesome is His name.”  Psalm 111:9

As her seven children all used the word ‘awesome’ frequently, a wise mom from our prayer group showed them that ‘awesome’ originated with God.

Lord, we rejoice that You are the definition of awesome!  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Holy and awesome
that is You

worthy and wonderful
through and through

and every time
I say Your name

my heart , mind and soul
are instantly changed.

An Awesome Thing

“For it is an awesome thing that I shall do with you.”  Exodus 34:10

Awesome.  How often have I used that word? To describe God, other people, places, things?  Yet, I hesitate to use it to describe what God is doing with my life.

Oh Lord, help me understand, believe and see the awesomeness of Your work in everyone . . .and even in me.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

What He Does

Rich Mullins sings
“our God is an awesome God”
and I must agree

and say “YES” to
the next awesome thing
He does with you and me.
