Dead Wood

 

Pride
never profits

never comes
to any good

though tall
as a tree

it topples like
dead wood.

Only You establish strength.

“. . . it’s branches have fallen on the mountains and in all the valleys; its boughs lie broken by all the rivers of the land; and all the peoples of the earth have gone from under its shadow and left it.” Ezekiel 31:12 NKJV

Falling Away

lies in yard

dead weight

 

I looked up but couldn’t see where it had fallen from.

“Surely there is a reward for the righteous; surely He is God who judges in the earth.”  Psalm 58:11 NKJV

I am the Reward                                                                                 and the Rewarder                                                                               of  My                                                                                                 righteous ones

the God who judges                                                                         in the earth                                                                                       so that evil’s                                                                                           undone.

scooped back into fallen pot

with bare hands

 

Fallen. Broken. Ruined. Messy. But our God saves.

 

“Have mercy on me, O LORD!

. . .You who lift me up from the gates of death

That I may tell of all Your praise . . .

I will rejoice in Your salvation.”    Psalm 9:13-14  NKJV

Fallen

“Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place – unless you repent.”  Revelation 2:5  NKJV

Three of the four churches spoken to in Chapter 2 were told to repent.  Only the persecuted church of Smyrna was not.

Thank You, Father, for searching me and giving me the opportunity to repent.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

I see the works
that you’ve done
your love and patience
and your faith

now repent
where you have fallen
have ears to hear
what I say.

God bless you as you hear what He has to say to you today!
