Those Who Sail With Us

“For there stood by me this night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve,
saying, ‘Do not be afraid, Paul; you must be brought before Caesar; and indeed God has granted you all those who sail with you.’ ”  Acts 27:23-24 NKJV

Paul must’ve been praying for everyone on board.

Thank You, Lord, for knowing how very much we want those sailing with us to be saved.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

We have a God
who saves us

gives us purpose
and sees us through

and even those
who are with us

will be shown
great mercy too.

God bless you and those with you today!

A Certain Mercy

220px-Rumunia_5806

“And may God Almighty give you mercy before the man, that he may release your other brother and Benjamin. If I am bereaved, I am bereaved.”  Genesis 43:14 NKJV

Jacob didn’t know if they would be shown mercy or not.

Thank You, Lord, for Your mercy that we can count on.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

I may not
receive mercy
from a family member
neighbor or friend

but when I ask You
for forgiveness
it is always
what You extend.

God bless you as you receive His mercy today.

“And while he lingered, the men took hold of his hand, his wife’s hand, and the hands of his two daughters, the LORD being merciful to him and they brought him out and set him outside the city.”  Genesis 19:16  NKJV

I tend to linger too.

Thank You, Lord, for Your great mercy that takes hold of us and brings us out and away from what would destroy us.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Your mercy takes
hold of me

and leads
me away

from the places
where I linger

that are harmful
for me to stay.

God bless you with His mercy today!

Mercy Looking

“But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit,

God’s Question

“Then the Lord said, “Is it right for you to be angry?” ”  Jonah 4:4

I love that God just asked Jonah a question. He had been through quite a lot by this point.

Thank You, Lord, for Your care and patience with me as I try to process what You are doing.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Is it right
for you to be angry?
God’s question
humbles me.

Please keep me broken
lowly and serving
praying for Your
relenting mercy.

God bless you and give you understanding today!

I listen to their stories, their testimonies
see all the miracles You are doing in their lives

it is beautiful and wonderful
and truly You are glorified.

So what can I do, Lord
that will make a difference at this time?

“Fear Me and hope
in the mercy only  I can provide.”
