Think It Over


Consider your ways
reflect on your conduct

where your time and
energy’s spent

then listen to Me
for I will be with you

making sure your efforts
are blessed.


You are with me so I desire what You desire.


” ‘Think it over,’ says the Lord of Hosts. ‘Consider how you have acted, and what has happened as a result!’ “

“You hope for much but get so little. And when you bring it home, I blow it away – it doesn’t last at all. Why? Because My temple lies in ruins and you don’t care. Your only concern is your own fine homes.”

“Then Zerubbabel (son of She-alti-el), the governor of Judah, and Joshua (son of Jisedech), the High Priest, and the few people remaining in the land obeyed Haggai’s message from the Lord their God; they began to worship Him in earnest.”

“Then the Lord told them (again sending the message through Haggai, His messenger), ‘I am with you, I will bless you.’ “

“And the Lord gave them a desire to rebuild His Temple . . .”

Haggai 1:7,9,12,13,14 TLB

All you
think you want

I can give

but there’s more
when you surrender

and follow
after Me.

You establish my true heart’s desires.

” ‘Do not be afraid. From now on you will catch men.’ So when they had brought their boats to land, they forsook all and followed Him.” Luke 5:10,11 NKJV

Great Is Your Faith


Your faith
is great

of that
I see

as you

so shall
it be.

You establish my desires.

“Then Jesus answered and said to her, ‘O woman, great is your faith. Let it be to you as you desire.’ And her daughter was healed from that very hour.” Matthew 15:28 NKJV

For Money

“. . .her heads judge for a bribe,
Her priests teach for pay,
And her prophets divine for money.”  Micah 3:11

It’s hard for me to not desire money.

Thank You, Jesus, for continuing to teach me to desire You more.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Let there be nothing
that I won’t do
simply because
You will me to

not for money
or recognition
but out of love
and sanctification.

God bless you as you desire Him more and more!

Perish The Thought

“The desire of the wicked shall perish.”  Psalm 112:10

The goodness of God will last forever.

Lord, I want to think more about Your desires than those of the wicked.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Upon Me

Your desire
is upon me

and it will never
pass away

pure and holy
are Your plans

from everlasting
and day to day.



“LORD, all my desire is before You;
And my sighing is not hidden from You.”  Psalms 38:9

Sometimes Aubrey will ask if I’m okay. She hears me sigh when I don’t even realize I have.

Oh Lord, may my desire be the same as Yours.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Before You

All my desire is before You
You see me dangling
from a string
for You have never left me
and You know everything
like how to change  my
sighing into praises
that I can joyfully sing
and how to transform
my life to delighting
in You, my worthy King.

Last Words

“Although my house is not so with God,
Yet He has made with me an everlasting covenant,
Ordered in all things and secure.
For this is all my salvation and all my desire. . .”  2 Samuel 23:5

Everything wasn’t perfect in David’s world . . .but God was.

Father, thank You for making an everlasting covenant with us through Your Son.  And here’s a simple poem . . .


By Your blood
we are secure

a covenant given
eternal and sure

all things ordered
promised and planned

our salvation, our desire
in the palm of Your hand.
