Rejoice Before The Lord

 

Celebrate with Me
the times you’ve been

willing and glad
to be moved

still keeping now
your hearts a-ready

in your own spiritual
booths.

**********

Lord, I celebrate how You move me step by step into what’s next and lies ahead.

“And you shall take for yourselves on the first day the fruit of beautiful trees, branches of palm trees, the boughs of leafy trees, and willows of the brook; and you shall rejoice before the LORD your God for seven days.”

“You shall keep it as a feast to the LORD for seven days in the year. It shall be a statute forever in your generations. You shall celebrate it in the seventh month.

“You shall dwell in booths for seven days. All who are native Israelites shall dwell in booths,”

“that your generations may know that I made the children of Israel dwell in booths when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.”

Leviticus 23:40,41,42,43 NKJV

The Beauty of Booth Living

“You shall dwell in booths for seven days. All who are native Israelites shall dwell in booths, that your generations may know that I made the children of Israel dwell in booths when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.” Leviticus 23:42-43

The children of Israel dwelling in booths reminds me that all of our lives here are but a temporary thing.

Lord, please help us not grow too attached to our surroundings on our journey home to You. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Temporary Tents

Tents make it easier
to pick up and move on

and booths reveal the beauty
of our story songs

about a Deliverer
Who came and ransomed us

so we can travel home together –
His name is Jesus.

Do you ever feel as though your life here is but a temporary thing?
