“And the people blessed all the men who willingly offered themselves to dwell at Jerusalem.”  Nehemiah 11:2

I am blessed by those who leave their homes and lands behind in service to God.

Lord, we desire to encourage those today who willingly offer themselves.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Some give up
all they have
to go and do
what must be done
a blessing and
sweet perfume
to us of
God’s own Son.

Last To Be Blessed

“Then David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the Lord.”  2 Samuel 6:17
“And when David had finished offering burnt offerings and peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the Lord of hosts.”  2 Samuel 6:18
“Then David returned to bless his household.”  2 Samuel 6:20

It can be challenging as those of the household, last to be blessed.

Oh Lord, let our homes be safe places of mercy and grace, understanding and love.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

In Line With Him

We struggle feeling unnoticed
unthought of, unmissed

at the very bottom of
a loved one’s list

but in God’s Kingdom
we are so blessed as His

that there is love and understanding
to cover such as this.
