Continual Love

 

I draw you
with gentle cords

I take away the yoke
and feed

teaching you
how to walk

loving you
continually.

*********

You are with me because You love me.

+++++++

“I taught Ephraim to walk,
Taking them by their arms;
But they did not know that I healed them.”

“I drew them with gentle cords,
With bands of love,
And I was to them as those who take the yoke from their neck.
I stooped and fed them.”

“For I am God, and not man,
The Holy One in your midst;
And I will not come with terror.”

Hosea 11:3,4,9 NKJV

Sowing and Reaping

 

You will learn
to seek Me

and I will show
you how

to sow
in righteousness

upon your fallow
ground.

**********

Because You are with me, I can sow righteousness and reap mercy.

**********

“Sow for yourselves righteousness;
Reap in mercy;
break up the fallow ground.
For it is time to seek the LORD,
Til He comes and rains righteousness on you.”

Hosea 10:12 NKJV

Remember

 

Help me
remember

and not ever
forget

that You are
my Maker

how each need
is met.

***********

I am constantly reminded of You, for You are with me.

“For Israel has forgotten his Maker,
And has built temples.”

In His Sight

 

I will heal
and bind up

I will revive
and raise

coming like
the former

and the latter
rains.

**********

You are with me as I live in Your sight.

**********

“Come and let us return to the LORD;
For He has torn, but He will heal us;
He has stricken, but He will bind us up.”

“After two days He will revive us;
On the third day He will raise us up,
That we may live in His sight.”

“Let us know,
Let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD.
His going forth is established as the morning;
He will come to us like the rain,
Like the latter and former rain to the earth.

Hosea 6:1,2,3 NKJV

Know Me

 

Turn your thoughts and deeds
toward Me

for I can
be known

and you’ll find that I
am sure

when nothing else
will hold.

***********

I can know You for You are with me.

***********

“They do not direct their deeds
Toward turning to their God,
For the spirit of harlotry is in their midst,
And they do not know the Lord.”

“Among the tribes of Israel I make known what is sure.”

“When Ephraim sees his sickness
And Judah sees his wound,
Then Ephraim went to Assyria
And sent to King Jareb;
Yet he cannot cure you,
Nor heal you of your wound.”

Hosea 5:4,9,13. NKJV

Accept Knowledge

 

Accept My knowledge
and understanding

and always
think about Me

for nothing good comes
from idols

and behaving
stubbornly.

**********

I will be okay today only because You are with me.

*********

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
Because you have rejected knowledge . . . .you have forgotten the law of your God. “

“For Israel is stubborn
Like a stubborn calf;
Now the Lord will let them forage
Like a lamb in open country.”

Hosea 4:6,16. NKJV

It Shall Come To Pass

 

Turn to Me
and away from

all that’s false
in your life

though you once
chased after it

today you’ll be
My bride.

*********

You establish restoration.

*********

“And it shall come to pass
In the place where it was said to them,
‘You are not My people,’
There is shall be said to them,
‘You are the sons of the living God.’ “

Hosea 1:10 NKJV

(Sorry . . .I DID have one more “establish” post for 2018. )

**********

Happy and blessed New Year!

Wilderness Of Comfort

 

I shall take from your mouth
names from the past

you shall remember them
no more

bringing you into
the wilderness for comfort

giving you hope’s song
as a door.

**********

You are with me in the wilderness to comfort me and give me hope.

*********

“Therefore, behold, I will allure her,
Will bring her into the wilderness,
And speak comfort to her.”

“I will give her her vineyards from there,
And the Valley of A’chor as a door of hope;
She shall sing there,
As in the days of her youth . . .”

“For I will take from her mouth the names of the Ba’als,
And they shall be remembered by their name no more.”

Hosea 2:14,15,17. NKJV

(My “word” for this coming year is “God with me”.  I started a day early!  🙂 )

Hear And See

 

It is up to me
to receive, believe

no one else
can do it for me

so I pray
my eyes to see

and my ears to hear
continually .

***********

You establish what I hear and see.

**********

“Therefore let it be known to you that the salvation of God has been sent to the Gentiles, and they will hear it.” Acts 28:28 NKJV

I Stand

 

Only by Your help
do I stand

and am able to
give witness

that You suffered
then rose from the dead

bringing light into
our darkness.

********

You establish my standing.

*********

“Therefore, having obtained help from God, to this day I stand, witnessing both to small and great, saying no other things than those which the prophets and Moses said would come – that the Christ would suffer, that He would be the first to rise from the dead, and would proclaim light to the Jewish people and to the Gentiles.” Acts 26:22,23 NKJV
