Stirred Up

“Now in the first year of Cyrus King of Persia, that the word of the LORD spoken by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus King of Persia, so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and also put it in writing, saying, ‘Thus says Cyrus king of Persia:  All the kingdoms of the earth the LORD God of heaven has given me.  And He has commanded me to build Him a house at Jerusalem which is in Judah.  Who is there  among you of all His people?  May the LORD his God be with him, and let him go up!’ ”  2 Chronicles 36:22-23

God will move in the ways He chooses to fulfill His word.

Lord, please stir me up today.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Going Up

Mad cyclone

I see you there
among My people
and I am with you
as you go

stirred up
by My Spirit
proclaiming My name
so all may know.

Turn Of Affairs

So the king did not listen to the people; for the turn of affairs was from God, that the LORD might fulfill His word which He had spoken by the hand of Ahijah the Shilonite to Jeroboam the son of Nabat.”  2 Chronicles 10:15

How much are  the “turn of affairs” that we witness today from God, that He might fulfill His word?

Lord, we trust and believe that You are ultimately in control of all we see happening around us.  Please prepare us as You fulfill Your word.  And here is a simple poem . . .

From God

So easy to get sucked in
worried and afraid

that all we see happening
is man-made

but God is behind
each turn of affairs

and we can trust Him
as we continue on in prayer.


A Memorial Day thank you to all those who have lain down their lives.  Blessings and love.
