Accepted

 

The opposite of accepted
is rejected

disapproved
denied

but in the Beloved
we’re established

accounted for
sanctified.

**********

I am accepted for You are with me.

**********

“. . . to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He has made us accepted in the Beloved.”

Ephesians 1:6 NKJV

Greatly Beloved

 

You are greatly
beloved

and can stand
without fear

for I will strengthen you
and give you peace

your prayers I
always hear.

**********

You establish my peace and strength in difficult situations.

“And he said to me, ‘O Daniel, man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak to you, and stand upright, for I have been sent to you.’ Then he said to me, ‘Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard . . .Then again, the one having the likeness of a man touched me and strengthened me. And he said, ‘O man greatly beloved, fear not! Peace be to you ; be strong, yes, be strong.’ So when he spoke to me I was strengthened . . .” Daniel 10:11,12,18,19 NKJV

Open

 

Open your heart
to Me
and do not be
afraid

to take part in
My sufferings
for this
you’re also made.

A laid down life is tested.

“I opened for my beloved, but my beloved had turned away and was gone. My heart leaped up when he spoke. I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave me no answer. The watchmen who went about the city found me; they struck me, they wounded me . . .If you find my beloved . . .tell him I am lovesick! Yes, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend.” Song of Solomon 5:6,7,8,16 NKJV

Build

 

Do not build your house
apart from Me
for your labor will be
in vain

but let whatever you do
be of My will
and to the glory of
My name.

A laid down life builds with God.

“Unless the LORD builds the house, they labor in vain who build it. It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows; for so He gives His beloved sleep.” Psalm 127:1,2 NKJV

A Banner

“You have given a banner to those who fear You,
That it may be displayed because of the truth,
That Your beloved may be delivered,
Save with Your right hand, and hear me.”  Psalms 60:4-5

God sets the truth in us and over us.

Lord, may Your truth be plainly displayed in us.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Flying Free

You make us
into banners

and fly us
for all to see

filled with
Your truth and love

proclaiming
“Jesus set us free!”

Sons Through Faith

“For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.”  Galatians 3:26

Being sons and daughters of God denotes a valued and close relationship.

Lord,  may we live out our lives as Your children, much loved and delighted in.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Living As Beloved

Lord let us live out
this wonderful truth

that we are beloved
and treasured by You

that Your heart has room for
more to be as we are

Your arms stretching out
both near to us and far.
