I Will Bless You


Consider now
from this time forward

how it has been
and now will be

how I will send you
blessing upon blessing

when you turn and walk
close with Me.


You are with me and will bless me.


“Consider now from this day forward, from the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, from the day that the foundation of the LORD’S temple was laid – consider it:”

“Is the seed still in the barn? As yet the vine, the fig tree, the pomegranate and the olive tree have not yielded fruit. But from this day forward I will bless you.”

Haggai 2:18,19 NKJV

From This Day Forward



“Is the seed still in the barn?  As yet the vine, the fig tree, the pomegranate, and the olive tree have not yielded fruit.  But from this day forward I will bless you.”  Haggai 2:19

The people had suffered through drought, blight, mildew and hail.

Thank You, Lord, for helping us move forward into Your blessings as we turn to You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Seems like it’s been
a tough year here

not much planted
not much fruit

oh let me always
turn forward with You, Lord

watching for the blessings
of new beginnings and shoots.

God bless you from this day forward!

Going Through It

“And the Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry to Me?  Tell the children of Israel to go forward.”  Exodus 14:15

I know what it’s like to be around someone having a meltdown.  But 600,000 men plus their families having meltdowns?  Yikes!

Yet that is what Moses faced as the people found themselves sandwiched between Pharaoh and the Red Sea.  God’s response to Moses may have seemed a little harsh, but in reality He was simply reminding Moses, “Of course I’m going to save you.  Of course, I’m going to make a way.”

Thank You, Jesus, for reminding me that when things get bad / ugly / scary there is only one thing to do . . . move forward  through it with You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

The Only Thing To Do

In the end
what am I to do
whenever I hit
a road block or two
but go over, under
around or through
always forward
and on with You.

What do you need to go forward through with Jesus?
