Psalm 32 Selah


I will not keep
my sin from You

but in You I
will hide

confessing all
my wrongs to You

letting forgiveness


I can pause and be blessed by Your forgiveness, for You are with me.


“Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.”

“I acknowledge my sin to You, and my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, ‘I will confess my transgressions to the LORD; and You forgave the iniquity of my sin’.” Selah

“You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance.” Selah

Psalm 32:1,5,7. NKJV

Before Him


You, O Lord, are in
Your holy temple

let all the earth
be still

as knowledge of
Your glory covers us

until like the sea
we’re filled.


You are Lord of everything and You are with me.


“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.”

“But the LORD is in His holy temple. Let all the earth keep silence before Him.”

Habakkuk 2:14, 20 NKJV

I saw you in
your nakedness
when you so needed

covering you with
My splendor
washing you in
My blood.

You establish my beauty.

 ” ‘And when I passed by you and saw you struggling in your own blood, I said to you in your own blood, “Live!” I made you thrive like a plant in the field. I spread My wing over you and covered your nakedness . . . Yes I swore an oath to you and entered into a covenant with you, and you became Mine, ‘ says the Lord GOD. ‘Then I washed you . . .I clothed you . . .I adorned you. Your fame went out among the nations because of your beauty, for it was perfect through My splendor which I had bestowed on you,’ says the Lord GOD.” Ezekiel 16:6,7,8,9,10,11,14 NKJV

I will raise you up
when you’re bowed down
and uphold you
when you fall

covering you with
tender mercies
for I am good
to all.

A laid down life is covered in tender mercies.

“The LORD is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works. The LORD upholds all who fall, and raises up all those who are bowed down.” Psalm 145:9,14 NKJV

His Hand


I know all
about you
and am with you
wherever you go

having covered you in
your mother’s womb
My hand will lead
you home.

A laid down life has God’s hand upon it.

“LORD, You have searched me and known me. You have hedged me behind and before, and laid Your hand upon me. For You have formed my inward parts; You have covered me in my mother’s womb. Lead me in the way everlasting.” Psalm 139:1,5,13,24 NKJV

Set your love
upon Me
make Me your
dwelling place

for I can
deliver you
and keep you
in all your ways.

A laid down life is covered by God and His truth.

“He shall cover you with His feathers. His truth shall be your shield and buckler. Because you have made the Lord your habitation, no evil shall befall you. For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. Because he has set his love upon Me , therefore I will deliver him.” Psalm 91:4,9,11,14 NKJV

Beginning To Be


cucumbers 001

“And Noah began to be a farmer, and he planted a vineyard.”  Genesis 9:20 NKJV

“Then he drank of the wine and was drunk, and became uncovered in his tent.”  Genesis 9:21. NKJV

I can’t always tell how things will end up when I begin something.

Thank You, Lord, for keeping us covered from start to finish.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

I know your beginnings
and  your endings

and all the days

and I am able
to keep and cover you

so that My love
ia always seen.

God bless all your new beginnings!

Head Gear

“I said to the LORD,  ‘You are my
Hear the voice of my supplications,
O God, the LORD, the strength of my
You have covered my head in the
day of battle.’ ”  Psalm 140:6-7

This reminds me of “The Battlefield of the Mind” by Joyce Meyers.

Lord, thank you for the helmet of salvation that protects my mind each day.  And here’s a simple poem . . .


Though my heart
be pierced and bleed

still You know
what I need

covering my mind
and my thoughts

with the hope
salvation brought.


Righteous Before God

“Then Bildad the Shuhite answered and said, . . .
How then can man be righteous before God?”  Job 25:1,4

Job was blameless and upright before God . . .but I was not.

Thank You, Lord, for covering me in Your righteousness.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Plain To See

source –

It was plain to see
I was not righteous

not so hard to say
I need You, Lord

and still today
I come before You

held up by
all You gave.

Covered and Carried

“And when Aaron and his sons have finished covering the sanctuary and all the furnishings of the sanctuary, when the camp is set to go, then the sons of Kohath shall come to carry them . . . ” Numbers 4:15

In this fourth chapter of Numbers, the Levites, divided into families, were given specific tasks of how to cover and carry the tabernacle of meeting.

Thank You, Lord, for covering and carrying . . . me. And here’s a simple poem . . .

But For You

Nothing about my life
should work
on any level
but You cover and carry me
as though I were
a most holy place.
