Rejoice In Hope

 

Before I
was even born

my Jesus died
for me

so I can know
how much I’m loved

having the hope of His
glory.

**********

You are with me and give me hope.

**********

“Therefore having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”

“But God demonstrates HIs own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Romans 5:1,2,8. NKJV

Revived

 

You shall be revived
like grain

and grow
like the vine

all your fruit
shall be found in Me

your scent shall be
like wine.

*********

You are with me and grow me.

*********

“I will heal their backsliding,
I will love them freely . . .”

“They shall be revived like grain,
And grow like the vine.
Their scent shall be like the wine of Lebanon.”

“I am like a green cyprus tree;
Your fruit is found in Me.”

Hosea 14:4,7,8 NKJV

Continual Love

 

I draw you
with gentle cords

I take away the yoke
and feed

teaching you
how to walk

loving you
continually.

*********

You are with me because You love me.

+++++++

“I taught Ephraim to walk,
Taking them by their arms;
But they did not know that I healed them.”

“I drew them with gentle cords,
With bands of love,
And I was to them as those who take the yoke from their neck.
I stooped and fed them.”

“For I am God, and not man,
The Holy One in your midst;
And I will not come with terror.”

Hosea 11:3,4,9 NKJV

Life Begins As A Love Story

 

You hover
over the water

speaking forth light
land and beasts

but gather together
in loving communion

to create us
from Your Trinity.

**********

You establish us by Your love.

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.
Then God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. Then He separated the light from the darkness. God called the light ‘day’ and the darkness ‘night’ . . .
God said, ‘Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.’ “

“So God created human beings in His own image.
In the image of God He created them;
male and female He created them.”

Genesis 1:1-5,26-27

Where I Am

 

Let not your heart
be troubled

as you
believe in Me

for I’ve prepared
a place for you

and receive you
lovingly.

You establish a way for me to be where You are.

“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” John 14:1,2,3 NKJV.

My Door

 

You are my
Good Shepherd

no one could love
me more

You know me
and call my name

as I walk through
Your Door.

You establish the Door I walk through.

“To him, the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.” John 10:3,7,9,11 NKJV

Not a god

 

I am
a simple woman
and You are
my God

full of love
and understanding
merciful
to all

I am not
a god
but know the One
who is

the Lifter
of my heart
that keeps trust
with His.

You establish Yourself as God.

“Because your heart is lifted up, and you say, ‘I am a god, I sit in the seat of gods, in the midst of the seas, ‘ yet you are a man, and not a god, though you set your heart as the heart of a god. . . “. Ezekiel 28:2 NKJV

Live

 

I saw you in
your nakedness
when you so needed
love

covering you with
My splendor
washing you in
My blood.

You establish my beauty.

 ” ‘And when I passed by you and saw you struggling in your own blood, I said to you in your own blood, “Live!” I made you thrive like a plant in the field. I spread My wing over you and covered your nakedness . . . Yes I swore an oath to you and entered into a covenant with you, and you became Mine, ‘ says the Lord GOD. ‘Then I washed you . . .I clothed you . . .I adorned you. Your fame went out among the nations because of your beauty, for it was perfect through My splendor which I had bestowed on you,’ says the Lord GOD.” Ezekiel 16:6,7,8,9,10,11,14 NKJV
