“And the Lord said to Moses, ‘Tell Aaron your brother not to come at simply anytime into the Holy Place inside the veil, before the mercy seat which is on the ark, lest he die, for I will appear in the cloud above the mercy seat.'”
“Thus Aaron shall come into the Holy Place: with the blood. . .” Leviticus 16:2-3

Even with the closest of friends and family, the offer to “stop by anytime” needs to be considered carefully.

Lord, how blessed we are that You have provided the blood needed for us to be forever in the Holy Place of Your heart. And here’s a simple poem . . .


No matter when
no matter where
Jesus has promised
He will be there.

How blessed we are
that He made a way
for us to be with Him
every hour of the day.

His Mercy Seat

“And there I will meet with you, and I will speak with you from above the mercy seat, from between the cherubim which are on the ark of the testimony. . .”  Exodus 25:22

God instructs for an ark to be made to carry the Testimony.  And a mercy seat to be above the ark.  How telling. God knew from the beginning what we would need above all else . . .mercy.

O Lord, thank You for Your mercy that constantly covers me and holds me to do likewise. Here’s a simple poem . . .

What Mercy’s Made Of

Mercy can’t be
made of anything
too revealing

like my white shirt
that shows exactly what
I’ve done all day

nor anything too hard
like those chair legs
I kick while barefoot

maybe something soft
to sink into, but strong
like memory foam

and able to make dirt
disappear like a
Mr. Clean magic eraser.
