Build Your House

 

Blessed are you
as you build your home
with love
and understanding

for your family always
finds peace there
and shelter from
the world’s clamoring.

A laid down life makes their house a home.

“Every wise woman builds her house , but the foolish pulls it down with her hands.” Proverbs 14:1 NKJV

Enraptured

 

You will be blessed
with what I give you
and rejoice in the life
you live

enraptured with
the love you find there
the beauty and grace
that exists.

A laid down life is enraptured by God’s love.

“Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice with the wife of your youth. As a loving deer and graceful doe . . .always be enraptured with her love.” Proverbs 5:18,19 NKJV

Child Of God

 

Behold how much
I love you
for now you’re called
My child

abiding in Me
and Me in you
My Spirit
testifies.

A laid down life is called “child” by God.

“Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Now he who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. And by this we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.” 1 John 3:1,24 NKJV

Kept

 

 

Set your love
upon Me
make Me your
dwelling place

for I can
deliver you
and keep you
in all your ways.

A laid down life is covered by God and His truth.

“He shall cover you with His feathers. His truth shall be your shield and buckler. Because you have made the Lord your habitation, no evil shall befall you. For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. Because he has set his love upon Me , therefore I will deliver him.” Psalm 91:4,9,11,14 NKJV

Abide In My Love

“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My  love.”  John 15: 9 NKJV

The definition of abide is: 1.) to live; dwell , 2.) to endure ,  3.) to remain faithful to, 4.) to watch or wait for.

Thank You, Lord, for a love we can live in. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Where else
can I go , Lord?

Only You

and a love
that sustains me

as in You
I abide.

He Loves

“Therefore the sisters sent to Him, saying, ‘Lord, behold, he whom You love is sick.’ ”  John 11:3  NKJV

I sometimes forget how very much He loves us . . .loves me.

Thank You, Lord, for loving us always.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

We are the ones, Lord
the ones that You love

the ones that are sick
that You constantly think of

the ones that You made
and know inside and out

the ones who”ll bring You glory
as You call us to come out!

God bless you, the one whom He loves!

Always

“But as soon as this son of yours came, who has devoured your livelihood with harlots, you killed the fatted calf for him.”
“And he said to him, ‘Son, you are always with me, and all that I have is yours.’ ”  Luke 15:30-31 NKJV

When someone else is being blessed, it doesn’t mean I’m not.

Thank You, Lord, for Your great love and longing toward all who have lost their way and all who walk with You each day.  And here is a simple poem . . .

You are always
with Me

and all I have
is yours

including the grace
to celebrate

for upon whoever
My love is poured.

God bless you as you celebrate His great love for someone else today!

Cold Love

“And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.”  Matthew 24:12

Lawlessness exhibits no regard for love.

Thank You, Lord, for Your love that never grows cold.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Please grow in me
a love

from a spark
into a flame

from a flame
into a fire

that cannot
be contained.

God bless you as you love Him and others today!

He’s Come To Save

“For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost.”  Matthew 18:11  NKJV

Being lost brings feelings of helplessness and hopelessness.

Thank You, Lord, for loving to save that which is lost.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Lost and sinking
slowly down

no hope of ever
being found

but for Jesus
who delights to save

each and every
sheep that strays.

God bless you as He rejoices over you today!

Another Side of Love

“As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.”  Revelation 3:19 NKJV

I usually look for blessings as a sign of His love.

Thank You, Lord, for loving me through rebuking and chastening.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

I look for Your favor
and blessings
as signs You
love me

but You have made
rebuking and chastening
even more precious
to see.

God bless you as you see how much He loves you today!
