Eat and Drink

 

Rejoice for
your food and drink
and for the work
you do

for it all comes
from My hand
a gift from Me
to you.

A laid down life enjoys what God gives.

“There is nothing better for a man than that he should eat and drink, and that his soul should enjoy good in his labor; this also, I saw, was from the hand of God.” Ecclesiates 2:24 NKJV

Build

 

Do not build your house
apart from Me
for your labor will be
in vain

but let whatever you do
be of My will
and to the glory of
My name.

A laid down life builds with God.

“Unless the LORD builds the house, they labor in vain who build it. It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows; for so He gives His beloved sleep.” Psalm 127:1,2 NKJV

Be In Pain and Labor

“Be in pain, and labor to bring forth;
O daughter of Zion,
Like a woman in birth pangs.”  Micah 4:10

Mothers know that the pain and labor are worth it.

Thank You, Lord, for leading me through the painful times that bring forth new joy.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

This feels too hard
and painful
though I know
that You love me.

Please strengthen me
to give birth to
all You desire
yet to be.

God bless you and encourage you during the painful times!

Yoke of Rest

“Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”  Matthew 11:29

Jesus calls all those who are already laboring and heavy laden to come take His yoke.  I hear myself start to whine . . .”But I’m tiiiirrrreeeedddd.”

We thank You that there’s a rest for our souls in laboring for You, Jesus, that nothing can disturb.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

No Retirement Plans

My mind may spin logistical
my body soon complain
but there’s a rest within my soul
each time I lift Your name.

Oh, I may need to sleep deep
and take a break now and then
but I never want to remove the yoke
from this lowly- hearted Son of Man.
