Where Lots Fall

“The lot fell to the children of Joseph, from the Jordan, by Jericho, to the waters of Jericho on the east, to the wilderness that goes up from Jericho through the mountains to Bethel, (Joshua 16:1)
then went out from Bethel to Luz, passed along to the border of the Archites at Ataroth, (Joshua 16:2)
and went down westward to the boundary of the Japhletites, as far as the boundary of Lower Beth Horon to Gezer, and it ended at the sea. (Joshua 16:3)
So the children of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim, took their inheritance.” (Joshua 16:4)

There is something about the way the borders are described that speaks to me of much love, thought and care.

Oh Lord, help us to understand our own boundaries and borders today. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Boundaries and Borders

The expectations are high
to do this, to go there

in fear of disappointing
we might cross out of where

God has set a safe place
around our hearts’ design

with room to thrive and grow
into all He has in mind.

Boundaries

“Command the children of Israel and say to them, ‘When you come into the land of Canaan, this is the land that shall fall to you as an inheritance – the land of Canaan to its boundaries’.” Numbers 34:2

Neighbors thought we had an invisible fence for our dog. But, we didn’t. My husband trained her to know the boundaries of the yard and to stay within them.

Thank You, Lord, for Your invisible Holy Spirit fence that lets us know when we cross the line. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Staying Within

We slip
towards the edge
and eye-ball
the other side,
but Love
draws us back
where grace
and mercy thrive.
