Revive

 

new landscaping
someone else’s job
to water

Thankful for the neighbor hired to help.

“You who have shown me great and severe troubles, shall revive me again. You shall increase my greatness and comfort me on every side. I will go in the strength of the Lord God.” Psalm 71:16,20, 21. NKJV.

 

I will revive you
again and again
and comfort you
on every side

And when your strength
fails you
My strength I will
provide.

My Help

 

praying everything
stays alive
until their return

Seeing a wilting cucumber plant from the kitchen window, we hurry outside to water it.

“You are my help and my deliverer; O Lord, do not delay. Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; and let those who love Your salvation say continually, “Let God be magnified”. “. Psalm 70:4,5

I am your help
and your deliverer
I will
not delay

to make glad
those who seek Me
who magnify
Me today.

Troubled

These beetles seem very determined.

“And do not hide Your face from Your servant, for I am in trouble. Draw near to my soul and redeem it; deliver me because of my enemies. Reproach has broken my heart , and I am full of heaviness.  Let Your salvation , O God, set me up on high.”  Psalm 69:17,18,20,29 NKJV

Though you are troubled

I am near you

redemption and deliverance

are mine

for I comfort

the broken hearted

My salvation sets you

on high.

Satisfied

Early will I seek You;

My Defense

My beloved
for I am
your defense

your refuge in
the day of trouble
the One from whom
all mercy’s sent.

Oh Lord, thank You. You are my Defender, my Redeemer . . .how merciful are You.  My Refuge in the day of trouble; Your strength always sees me through.

“But I will sing of Your power;
Yes, I will sing aloud of Your mercy in the morning;
For You have been my defense
And refuge in the day of my trouble.
To You, O my Strength, I will sing praises,
For God is my defense
The God of my mercy.”  Psalm 59:16-17 NKJV

Falling Away

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.
