Peaceable

 

Be subject to rulers
obedient

ready for every
good work

speaking evil of no one
peaceable, gentle

showing all the humility
of our Lord.

**********

I can be peaceable for You are with me.

**********

“Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, to obey, to be ready for every good work,”

“to speak evil of no one, to be peaceable, gentle, showing all humility to all men.”

Titus 3:1,2. NKJV

In Humility

 

Be gentle
avoiding quarrels

teaching others
patiently

humbly correcting
those who oppose

so the truth is known
and they’re set free.

**********

I can avoid arguing, for You are with me.

**********

“And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient,”

“in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth,”

“and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.”

2 Timothy 2:24,25,26 NKJV

To Be Ready

“Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, to obey, to be ready for every good work,
to speak evil of no one, to be peaceable, gentle, showing all humility to all men.”   Titus 3:1-2

I am listening to this as the November elections draw near.

Lord, as we embrace this scripture for ourselves, we also pray it for those who will be leaders in our country.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

What Good?

What good will come
if we aren’t ready

to do good
and obey

to be gentle
and know Peace

to hold back on
calling names?

Yoke of Rest

“Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”  Matthew 11:29

Jesus calls all those who are already laboring and heavy laden to come take His yoke.  I hear myself start to whine . . .”But I’m tiiiirrrreeeedddd.”

We thank You that there’s a rest for our souls in laboring for You, Jesus, that nothing can disturb.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

No Retirement Plans

My mind may spin logistical
my body soon complain
but there’s a rest within my soul
each time I lift Your name.

Oh, I may need to sleep deep
and take a break now and then
but I never want to remove the yoke
from this lowly- hearted Son of Man.
