What Is Good

 

I brought you up
and ransomed you

remember what
I’ve done

walking humbly
with Me

loving justice and
compassion.

**********

I remember what You have done, for You are with me.

***********

“For I brought you up from the land of Egypt, I redeemed you from the house of bondage; and I sent before you Moses, Aaron, and Miriam.”

“O My people, remember now what Balak King of Moab counseled, and what Balaam the son of Beor answered him, from Acacia Grove to Gilgal, that you may know the righteousness of the LORD.”

“He has shown you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?”

Micah 6:4,5,8. NKJV

Made Alive

 

I was far off
but brought near

by the blood
of Christ

saved through faith
Your mercy and grace

once dead now I’m
alive.

**********

You are with me and make me alive.

**********

“And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins . . .”

“But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,”

“even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ . . .”

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God . . .”

Ephesians 2:1,4,5,8 NKJV

Should I Not Pity

 

It is I
who create
breathe into
make alive.

It is mine
to have pity on
to be merciful
lovingkind.

**********

I can rejoice in Your mercy to others, for You are with me.

**********

“But the LORD said, ‘You have had pity on the plant for which you have not labored, nor made it grow, which came up in a night and perished in a night.’ “

” ‘And should I not pity Nineveh, that great city, in which are more than one hundred and twenty thousand persons who cannot discern between their right hand and their left, and also much livestock?’ “

Jonah 4:10,11 NKJV

Forsaking Mercy

 

Idols come
in many forms

if I seek anything
more than You

then I forsake
my precious Mercy

my life, my hope
my truth.

***********

I know mercy for You are with me.

***********

“Those who regard worthless idols forsake their own Mercy.”

“But I will sacrifice to You with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay what I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD.”

Jonah 2:8,9 NKJV

Sowing and Reaping

 

You will learn
to seek Me

and I will show
you how

to sow
in righteousness

upon your fallow
ground.

Because You are with me, I can sow righteousness and reap mercy.

Reap in mercy;
break up the fallow ground.

Til He comes and rains righteousness on you.”

Because Of Your Great Mercies

Because of Your
great mercies

we can come
before You

speaking
supplications

for we are
Your people.

*********

You establish Your city and Your people.

“Oh my God, incline Your ear and hear; open Your eyes and see our desolations and the city which is called by Your name; for we do not present our supplications before You because of our righteous deeds, but because of Your great mercies. O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and act! Do not delay for Your own sake, for Your city and Your people are called by Your name.” Daniel 9:18,19 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

Abide

 

Stay and
abide with Me

here in this place
I’ve given

do not be afraid
for I’m with you to save

and My mercy is real
and living.

You establish where I abide.

” ‘If you will still abide in this land, then I will build you and not pull you down, and I will plant you and not pluck you up. Do not be afraid of the king of Babylon, of whom you are afraid; do not be afraid of him,’ says the LORD, ‘for I am with you, to save you and deliver you from his hand. And I will show you mercy, that he may have mercy on you and cause you to return to your own land.’ ” Jeremiah 42:10,11,12 NKJV

Return

 

Return to Me
for I am merciful

it is never ever
too late

and I will handpick shepherds
to care for you

according to My love
which is great.

You establish the way of repentance for me.

“‘Return, backsliding Israel,’ says the LORD, ‘I will not cause My anger to fall on you, for I am merciful,’ says the LORD. ‘And I will give you shepherds according to My heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding.’ ” Jeremiah 3:12,15 NKJV
