Blessing And Cursing


We bless God
and curse men

who were made in
the image of Him

blessing and cursing
from the same mouth

needs forgiveness
and His healing.


Lord, help me be more and more aware of what comes out of my mouth, waiting before I speak. I desire to bless with my words or not talk at all.


“But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.”

“With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God.”

“Out of he same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so.”

James 3:8,9,10. NKJV

I Am With You


Do not fear
for I am with you

I will multiply you
for Abraham’s sake

and as others see
My blessing on you

a covenant with you
they’ll make.


The One who blessed Isaac is with me.


“And the LORD appeared to him the same night and said, ‘I am the God of your father Abraham; do not fear. For I am with you. I will bless you and multiply your descendants for My servant Abraham’s sake.”

“But they said, ‘We have certainly seen that the LORD is with you. So we said, “Let there now be an oath between us, between you and us; and let us make a covenant with you . . .” ‘ “

“You are now the blessed of the LORD.”

Genesis 26:24,28,29. NKJV

Psalm 3 Selah


You, O Lord
are a shield for me

when the enemy

lifting my head
and sustaining me

in You
my blessing’s found.


I can pause to evaluate my situation and who You are in it, for You are with me.


“Lord, how they have increased who trouble me! Many are they who rise up against me.”

“Many are they who say of me, ‘There is no help for him in God.’ “

“But You, O LORD, are a shield for me, my glory and the One who lifts up my head.”

“I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the LORD sustained me.”

“Salvation belongs to the LORD. Your blessing is upon Your people.” Selah

Psalm 3:1,2,3,5,8. NKJV

You Are A Blessing


I will save you
to be a blessing

do not fear
let your hands be strong

speaking the truth
to one another

letting justice and peace
take the place of wrong.


You are with me so I am a blessing.


“And it shall come to pass that just as you were a curse among the nations, O house of Judah and house of Israel, so I will save you, and you shall be a blessing. Do not fear, let your hands be strong.”

“These are the things you shall do: speak each man the truth to his neighbor; give judgement in your gates for truth, justice, and peace;”

“let none of you think evil in your heart against your neighbor; and do not love a false oath. For all these are things that I hate.”

I Will Bless You


Consider now
from this time forward

how it has been
and now will be

how I will send you
blessing upon blessing

when you turn and walk
close with Me.


You are with me and will bless me.


“Consider now from this day forward, from the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, from the day that the foundation of the LORD’S temple was laid – consider it:”

“Is the seed still in the barn? As yet the vine, the fig tree, the pomegranate and the olive tree have not yielded fruit. But from this day forward I will bless you.”

Haggai 2:18,19 NKJV

You always know
what is coming

You always know
what happens next

in the blessing

of Your awesome

You establish what happens next.

A Well Of Life



The work of your hands
leads to life
and your mouth
is a living well

feeding many
and giving a drink
of the Good News
that you tell.

A laid down life has an everlasting foundation.

“The mouth of the righteous is a well of life. The labor of the righteous leads to life. The lips of the righteous feed many. The blessing of the LORD makes one rich, and He adds no sorrow with it. When the whirlwind passes by, the wicked is no more, but the righteous has an everlasting foundation.” Proverbs 10:11,16,21 NKJV

How good it is
to dwell in unity
to raise your hands
and bless your Lord

its like precious oil
running down upon you
like dew descending

A laid down life is united with God and His people.

“Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity. It is like the precious oil upon the head , running down on the bead, the beard of Aaron, running down on the edge of his garments. It is like the dew of Hermon, descending upon the mountains of Zion; for there the LORD commanded the blessing – life forevermore.” Psalm 133:1,2,3. NKJV
