Unbroken

 

Come and let Me
write again

the commandments
I have spoken

for I am
longsuffering

and My word remains
unbroken.

**********

The One who is longsuffering is with me.

**********

“And the LORD said to Moses, ‘Cut two tablets of stone like the first ones, and I will write on these tablets the words that were on the first tablets which you broke.”

“And the LORD passed before him and proclaimed, ‘The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth . . .’ “

Exodus 34:1,6 NKJV

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

Longsuffering

“However for that reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe on Him for everlasting life.” 1 Timothy 1:16

Here are a few definitions of long suffering:

*quality of self-restraint in the face of provocation
*does not hastily retaliate or promptly punish
*opposite of anger
*does not surrender to circumstances or succomb under pressure
*endures lasting offense or hardship.

Lord, thank You for what You are doing in us despite of ourselves. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Enduring

Ever patient, loving kind
You aren’t quick to punish
full of mercy, You always work
on what is within us
for our good and the good
of others all around us
You use everything to show
just how much You’re for us.
