Liberty

 

I will
set you free

from the bondage
you have known

to be
at liberty

to live for Me
and grow.

You establish my liberty.

“I made a covenant with your fathers in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage, saying, ‘At the end of seven years let every man set free his Hebrew brother, who has been sold to him; and when he has served you six years, you shall let him go free from you.’ Then you recently turned and did what was right in My sight – every man proclaiming liberty to his neighbor . . .” Jeremiah 34:13,14,15 NKJV

Heavy Bondage

“. . . yet in spite of this I did not demand the governor’s provisions, because the bondage was heavy on this people.”  Nehemiah 5:18

Those in bondage can’t make provisions for others . . .or even for themselves.

Lord, please help us not demand more than we should of one another.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Praying Loose

Those in chains
cannot give
as we might want
to expect
until we pray
loose the bonds
with loving care
and respect.

“For We Were Slaves”

“For we were slaves.  Yet our God did not forsake us in our bondage, but He extended mercy to us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to revive us, to repair the house of our God, to rebuild its ruins, and to give us a wall in Judah and Jerusalem.”  Ezra 9:9

God did not forsake us in our bondage either.

Lord, thank You for extending mercy to us through Jesus on the cross.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Unforsaken

source – servantsofthefather.org

Oh what a wonder
Your mercy is to us

reviving, repairing
building us up in Jesus

for we were slaves
stuck in sin’s lair

but unforgotten as Mercy
brought us out of there.

Liberty

“Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.”  Galatians 5:1

My youngest likes to dress up plastic horses.  Sometimes I’m not sure if I’ll manage to get them undone again.

Lord, please come and undo me once again from what I’ve gotten tangled in.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Please Undo Me

I stand
like Lady Liberty
awash
in His mercy
arms raised
to the One who frees
who knows
how to undo me.
