Heart Healer

 

I take pleasure
in your praises
how you hope
in My mercy

healing your heart
each time it’s broken
binding your wounds
tenderly.

A laid down life hopes in God’s mercy.

“For it is good to sing praises to our God; for it is pleasant and praise is beautiful. He heals the broken-hearted and binds up their wounds. The LORD takes pleasure in those who fear Him, in those who hope in His mercy. “. Psalm 147:1,3,11 NKJV

Calmed

 

Lord, let my heart not be haughty
nor my eyes lofty
so I don’t concern myself
with the profound

but calm my soul
and keep it quiet
so that my hope
in You alone is found.

A laid down life has a calmed soul.

“Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor my eyes lofty, neither do I concern myself with great matters, nor with things too profound for me. Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul. O Israel, hope in the LORD from this time forth and forever.” Psalm 131:1,2,3 NKJV

Expectation

The Hope of the Promise

source - Wikipedia

source – Wikipedia

“And now I stand and am judged for the hope of the promise made by God to our fathers.”  Acts 26:6 NKJV

Jesus is our Hope and our Promise.

Thank You, Lord, for the hope Your promises contain.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Jesus is the hope
of the promise

that God gave us
long before

coming to bring
forgiveness

and eternal life
restore.

God bless you as you have Hope today!

Prisoners Of Hope

“Return to the stronghold,

You prisoners of hope.”  Zechariah 9:12

 

Hope can be a stronghold.

Thank You,  Lord, for setting us free to hope.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

 

Rescued from

the waterless pit

 

we are now

His prisoners of hope

 

set free to believe

love and trust

 

in the center of

His strong hold.

 

God bless you as you hope in Him today!

Breath of Life

“Now when they finish their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, overcome them and kill them.”  Revelation 11:7 NKJV

“Now after the three and a half days, the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them.”  Revelation 11:10 NKJV

I’m reminded of the utter shock and devastation the apostles must have felt seeing Jesus nailed to a cross and placed in a tomb.

Thank You, Lord, for breathing life into what appears to have died.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

When it looks
the darkest
and prayer has seemed
to fail

that’s when God says
“Come close to Me
and watch how I
prevail.”

God bless you as He breathes life into what seems hopeless today!

No Better

“Are you better than No Amon
That
was situated by the River . . .
Whose wall was like the sea?”  Nahum 3:8
NKJV

“Ethiopia and Egypt were her strength
And it was boundless . . .
Yet she was carried away . . .”  Nahum 3:9-10 NKJV

Greatness and strength can be a slippery slope.

Thank You, Jesus, for being my stronghold and my hope.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

I am no better
than any other
rich or poor
sinner or saint

only in that
my life is Yours
do I have hope
come what may.

God bless you as you hope in Him today!
