No Better

“Are you better than No Amon
That
was situated by the River . . .
Whose wall was like the sea?”  Nahum 3:8
NKJV

“Ethiopia and Egypt were her strength
And it was boundless . . .
Yet she was carried away . . .”  Nahum 3:9-10 NKJV

Greatness and strength can be a slippery slope.

Thank You, Jesus, for being my stronghold and my hope.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

I am no better
than any other
rich or poor
sinner or saint

only in that
my life is Yours
do I have hope
come what may.

God bless you as you hope in Him today!

When Our Heart Carries Us Away

Are the consolations of God too small for you,
And the word spoken gently with you?
Why does your heart carry you away
And what do your eyes wink at . . .”  Job 15:11-12

I get carried away at times too.

Lord, we thank You that when our emotions jerk us around, You are always there to bring us back to the truth.   And here’s a simple poem . . .

Carried Always

My heart runs
pulled by emotions
wanting to drag me
every which-a-ways

but You are steadfast
my Rock and Anchor
sustaining and carrying me
all of my days.
