Looking Unto Jesus

 

 

Looking
unto Jesus

the author and finisher
of our faith

let us run
with endurance

this ever
present race.

**********

I can run my race for You are with me.

**********

“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, “

“looking into Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has set down at the right hand of the throne of God. “

Hebrews 12:1,2. NKJV

Psalm 21 Selah

 

I have joy in
Your strength, O Lord

in Your salvation
I am blessed

I asked for life
and You have given it

full of Your mercy
and goodness.

**********

I can pause and be thankful, for You are with me.

**********

“The king shall have joy in Your strength, O LORD; and in Your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!”

“You have given him his heart’s desire, and have not withheld the request of his lips.” Selah

“For You meet him with the blessings of goodness; “

“He asked life from You and You gave it to him -“

“For the king trusts in the LORD, and through the mercy of the Most High he shall not be moved.”

Longsuffering With Joy

 

O Lord, we pray to be filled
with the knowledge of Your will

walking closer and closer
with You

strengthened with all might
by Your glorious light

joyous in what
we go through.

***********

You are with me for all longsuffering with joy.

***********

“For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;”

“that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;”

“strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy . . .”

Colossians 1:9,10,11 NKJV

The Vine And The Fig Tree

 

Though the vine and the fig tree
dry up and wither

and joy and gladness
seem gone

this is not
the end yet

keep turned to Me
My love is strong.

**********

When destruction and devastation occur, You are still with me.

**********

“The vine has dried up
And the fig tree has withered;
Surely joy has withered away from the sons of men.”

“Is not the food cut off before our eyes,
Joy and gladness from the house of our God?”

“‘Now, therefore,’ says the LORD, ‘Turn to me with all your heart.'”

Joel 1:12,16 NKJV
Joel 2:12. NKJV

endures forever

bringing forth glad
singing from you.

A Highway

 

There’s a highway
of holiness
for My ransomed
and redeemed

where sighs and sorrows
disappear
and every step
is a joyful leap.

Jesus establishes my pathway.

“The lame shall leap like a deer, and the tongue of the dumb sing. A highway shall be there, and a road, and it shall be called the Highway of Holiness. But the redeemed shall walk there, and the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with singing, with everlasting joy on their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.” Isaiah 35:6,8,9,10 NKJV

The Increase

 

I will increase
My Kingdom

and there will be

and justice

of which
I intend.
