My Commandments

 

I will teach you
the difference

between what’s from men
and what’s from Me

for traditions
snare and entangle

but My commandments
set you free.

You establish Your commandments to Me.

“And He said to them, ‘All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition.’ ” Mark 7:9 NKJV

Escape

“Our soul has escaped as a bird from
the snare of the fowlers;
The snare is broken, and we have escaped”  Psalm 124:7

We watched a red tailed hawk soaring into the sky the other day.

Lord, thank You for setting us free from the snare, so we can fly.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

To Fly

The hawk started
down low

then climbed up high
into the sky.

She wondered why
it would do this

I thought, it was
meant to fly.

(Hi dear friends!  I will be away from the computer quite a bit
the next 10 days, and haven’t yet decided how to deal with it.
🙂   So, if I don’t get to your blogs or to my own, you’ll know why!
Wishing you a beautiful Easter!)

Leading Captivity Captive

“You have ascended on high,
You have led captivity captive;” 
Psalms 68:18

Jesus came to set the captives free.

Lord, we desire to only be held captivated by You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Freed Up

You take captivity captive
no one can keep me from You

and when my thinking gets stinking
You take hold of that too.

No matter what kind of prison
I find myself in

the truth is I’m free
when I believe in Him.

Liberty

“Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.”  Galatians 5:1

My youngest likes to dress up plastic horses.  Sometimes I’m not sure if I’ll manage to get them undone again.

Lord, please come and undo me once again from what I’ve gotten tangled in.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Please Undo Me

I stand
like Lady Liberty
awash
in His mercy
arms raised
to the One who frees
who knows
how to undo me.

Where Would I Go?

“But if the servant plainly says, “I love my Master . . .I will not go out free . . .” he shall serve him forever.”  Exodus 21:5

When my daughters were very young, we found a baby robin after a bad storm.  The oldest painstakingly cared for this little bird named Stormy.  Long after it could fly, it stayed on the porch waiting for her to feed it and to play with her in the sprinkler.

Jesus, I love You!  There is no where else I’d rather be than with You. And here’s a simple poem. . .

free to stay

thank You
for setting me free
so that i
can stay

and lovingly
serve You
all of these
my days.
