Heart Ponderings


Keep all
the things I tell you

ponder them
in your heart

let them take root
inside of you

never to

A laid down life takes God’s Word to heart.

“And all those who heard it marveled at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart.” Luke 2:18,19 NKJV

Joyfully Busy


I will keep
you busy
with the joy
of your heart

that you may
dwell in peace
and from it
never part.

A laid down life is joyfully busy.

“For he will not dwell unduly on the days of his life, because God keeps him busy with the joy of his heart.” Ecclesiates 5:20 NKJV

Place your heart
in My hands
that I may turn
and weigh it

searching all
the inner depths
shining My life
within it.

A laid down life’s heart is in God’s hand.

“The spirit of a man is the lamp of the LORD, searching all the inner depths of his heart. The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes. Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but the LORD weighs the heart.” Proverbs 20:27 and 21:1,2 NKJV

I will write My word
upon your heart
for I will surely
lead you

when you’re asleep
or you’re awake
I will always
keep you.

A laid down life is led by God.

“My son, keep your father’s command, and do not forsake the law of your mother. Bind them continually upon your heart; tie them around your neck. When you roam, they will lead you; when you sleep, they will keep you; And when you awake, they will speak with you.” Proverbs 6:20,21,22 NKJV

My Word


I will hide
My word in your heart
causing it
to grow

that it can be
a light as you walk
showing you where
to go.

A laid down life has God’s Word for a light and a lamp.

“Your word I have hidden in my heart, for You shall enlarge my heart. Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. “. Psalm 119:11,32,105 NKJV

Your heart will
remain steadfast
as you
trust in Me

your Light
who arises
always helping
you to see.

A laid down life has a Light in the darkness.

“Unto the upright there arises light in the darkness. His heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD. His heart is established.” Psalm 112:4,7,8 NKJV

Unite My Heart

“Teach me Your way, O LORD;
I will walk in Your truth;
Unite my heart to fear Your name.
I will praise You, O LORD my God,
with all my heart.”  Psalms 86:11-12

God gives us each one heart and one Love.

Oh Lord, let us join our hearts together, to worship You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

All My Heart



Hearts torn
can falter
like a house
divided falls

but one decided
on Jesus
loves Him
with their all.

“Blessed is the man whose strength
is in You,
Whose heart is set on pilgrimage.”  Psalms 84:5

A pilgrimage denotes a certain sacrifice, an element of unknown.

Father, please help me to keep moving forward into all You desire me to.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Hearts Moving



Oh Lord, let my heart
not be

set in stone

but strengthened
to keep moving

and following You
I pray.

Understanding Hearts

“For You have hidden their heart from understanding
Therefore You will not exalt them.” 
Job 17:4

Understanding friends are such a blessing and a gift.

Lord, You know us and understand us like on one else can . . .and we exalt You and lift You high.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Setting Aside

source – blogs.constantcontact.com

When we love someone
we want to understand

what is going on
how we can encourage them

so we set aside
preconceived ideas

giving Him our hearts
so we can listen for real.

When Our Heart Carries Us Away

Are the consolations of God too small for you,
And the word spoken gently with you?
Why does your heart carry you away
And what do your eyes wink at . . .”  Job 15:11-12

I get carried away at times too.

Lord, we thank You that when our emotions jerk us around, You are always there to bring us back to the truth.   And here’s a simple poem . . .

Carried Always

My heart runs
pulled by emotions
wanting to drag me
every which-a-ways

but You are steadfast
my Rock and Anchor
sustaining and carrying me
all of my days.
