God Provides

 

You truly see
my every need
knowing how and when
to provide it

as You gave up
Your only son
and didn’t withhold Him
from us.

*********

You establish my provision.

“When they reached the place God had told him about, Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood on it. He bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. Then he reached out his hand and took the knife to slay his son. But the angel of the LORD called out to him from heaven, ‘Abraham! Abraham!’ “

” ‘ Here I am, ‘ he replied.”

” ‘Do not lay a hand on the boy,’ he said. ‘Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son.’ “

“Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son. So Abraham called that place The LORD Will Provide.”

Genesis 22:9-14 NIV

Laughter

 

Hard pressed
barren

seemingly running
out of time

yet we can joy
in Jesus

knowing His ways are
lovingkind.

**********

You establish the gift of laughter.

“The LORD kept His word and did for Sarah exactly what He had promised. She became pregnant, and she gave birth to a son for Abraham in his old age. This happened at just the time God said it would. And Abraham named their son Isaac. Eight days after Isaac was born, Abraham circumcised him as God had commanded. Abraham was 100 years old when Isaac was born.”

“And Sarah declared, ‘God has brought me laughter. All who hear about this will laugh with me. Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse a baby?  Yet I have given Abraham a son in his old age!’ “

Genesis 21:1-7

“And Abraham made a great feast on the same day that Isaac was weaned.”  Genesis 21:8 NKJV
“And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, scoffing.”  Genesis 21:9 NKJV

I do not have a poker face.

Thank You, Lord, for helping our outside reflect what You are doing inside.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

The look on my face
shows what’s on my mind

and if my thoughts
are other than kind.

Undo me, Lord
so I can repent

and learn to focus
on You instead.

God bless you as He sees you today!
