The Faithful Witness

 

I am
the faithful witness
who gives
grace and peace

the firstborn
from the dead
ruler
of earthly kings.

My witness is faithfully established in Jesus.

“Grace to you and peace from Him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne, and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth.” Revelation 1:4,5 NKJV

Upon Me

 

The grace of God
is upon me
His Spirit
strong and sure

filling me
with wisdom
gentle, kind
and pure.

A laid down life grows with God.

In Truth and Love

 

Grace, mercy and peace
you have from Me
for you are in
the truth

walking in love
for one another
just as I
commanded you.

A laid down life abides in truth and love.

“To the elect lady and her children, whom I love in truth, and not only I, but also all those who have known the truth, because of the truth which abides in us and will be with us forever. Grace, mercy and peace will be with you from God the Father and from the LORD Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love. And now I plead with you , lady, not as though I write a new commandment to you, but that which we have had from the beginning; that we love one another. This is love, that we walk according to His commandments. This is the commandment, that as you have heard from the beginning you should walk in it.” 2 John 1,2,3,5,6 NKJV

Enraptured

 

You will be blessed
with what I give you
and rejoice in the life
you live

enraptured with
the love you find there
the beauty and grace
that exists.

A laid down life is enraptured by God’s love.

“Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice with the wife of your youth. As a loving deer and graceful doe . . .always be enraptured with her love.” Proverbs 5:18,19 NKJV

Paths Of Peace

 

Ask Me for wisdom
and understanding
and I will give them
to you

adding paths of peace
and pleasantness
and grace to see
you through.

A laid down life is given the confidence of God.

“Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. Do not be afraid of sudden terror, nor of trouble from the wicked when it comes; for the LORD will be your confidence , and will keep your foot from being caught. He . . .gives grace to the humble.” Proverbs 3:13,17,25,26,34 NKJV

from heavy yokes
we are spared

for now we trust
and have faith

that only by Jesus
are we saved.

I couldn’t make it through a single day without grace.

Thank You, Lord, for looking upon us with grace.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

with eyes of grace

Always

“But as soon as this son of yours came, who has devoured your livelihood with harlots, you killed the fatted calf for him.”
“And he said to him, ‘Son, you are always with me, and all that I have is yours.’ ”  Luke 15:30-31 NKJV

When someone else is being blessed, it doesn’t mean I’m not.

Thank You, Lord, for Your great love and longing toward all who have lost their way and all who walk with You each day.  And here is a simple poem . . .

You are always
with Me

and all I have
is yours

including the grace
to celebrate

for upon whoever
My love is poured.

God bless you as you celebrate His great love for someone else today!
