“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.

Walk This Way

“Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them, ‘I am the Lord your God.’
‘According to the doings of the land of Egypt where you dwelt, you shall not do; and according to the doings of the land of Canaan, where I am bringing you, you shall not do, nor shall you walk in their ordinances.'” Leviticus 18:2-3

The children of Israel were in a uniquely different place. Unable to do what they once did, nor able to do what others were currently doing meant they would most surely need the Lord their God.

Jesus, may the difference You make in my life reflect my dependence on You today. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Where He’s Bringing Me

Leaving the past behind
and walking on ahead

not doing what others do
but leaning on You instead

keeps me from falling back into
the mire You pulled me from

and requires a mega dose of
Your Holy Spirit’s power and love.
