Blessed are you
who trust in Me
longing for Me
and Me alone

crying out with all
your heart and flesh
no good thing
will I withhold.

A laid down life longs for God.

“My soul longs , yes, even faints for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. The Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts, blessed is the man who trusts in You!” Psalm 84:2,11-12 NKJV

His Longing

“So Absalom fled and went to Gashur, and was there three years.”  2 Samuel 13:38
“And King David longed to go to Absalom.  For he had been comforted concerning Amnon, because he was dead.”  2 Samuel 13:39

God longs to come even though we sin, nail His Son to the cross and flee.

Lord, thank You for the comfort of salvation and your resurrection power.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

To Be With You Always

I long to be with you
but we’re separated by your sin
so I sent My Jesus
and though you crucified Him
He brought the Comforter
My Holy Spirit has come
to be with You always
through the Christ, My Son.

A Present Remnant

“Even so then, at this present time there is a remnant according to the election of grace.” Romans 11:5

I love fabrics. During my sewing days, I would look for remnants – little left over pieces bundled up at the store – and imagine what I could make with them.

Lord, we rejoice with Your remnant over Your promises and all that You are going to create through them. And here’s a simple poem . . .

My Remnant

Like gleaning grapes glistening
in clear heat listening
so shall My remnant be.

Like heads of grain
in the Valley of Rephraim
so shall My remnant be.

Like two or three olives high in the tree
like four or five on a lower branch be
remains a people longing to see
so shall My remnant be.
