In Truth and Love

 

Grace, mercy and peace
you have from Me
for you are in
the truth

walking in love
for one another
just as I
commanded you.

A laid down life abides in truth and love.

“To the elect lady and her children, whom I love in truth, and not only I, but also all those who have known the truth, because of the truth which abides in us and will be with us forever. Grace, mercy and peace will be with you from God the Father and from the LORD Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love. And now I plead with you , lady, not as though I write a new commandment to you, but that which we have had from the beginning; that we love one another. This is love, that we walk according to His commandments. This is the commandment, that as you have heard from the beginning you should walk in it.” 2 John 1,2,3,5,6 NKJV

Paths Of Peace

 

Ask Me for wisdom
and understanding
and I will give them
to you

adding paths of peace
and pleasantness
and grace to see
you through.

A laid down life is given the confidence of God.

“Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. Do not be afraid of sudden terror, nor of trouble from the wicked when it comes; for the LORD will be your confidence , and will keep your foot from being caught. He . . .gives grace to the humble.” Proverbs 3:13,17,25,26,34 NKJV

Walking With God

“He walked with Me in peace and equity
And turned many away from iniquity.”  Malachi 2:6 NKJV

Our walks with God affect others for good.

Thank You, Lord, for the covenant You make with each of us.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

He walked with Me
in peace and equity

turning many from
iniquity

Serving Alone

“Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone?  Therefore tell her to help me.”  Luke 10:40 NKJV

I love to serve, but when I’m stressed out it doesn’t come across that way.

Thank You, Lord, for Your peace that passes understanding when we are serving alone.
And here is a simple poem. . .

One thing is
needed
and that is
My peace

as you
love and
serve others
joyfully.

God bless you with peace as you serve Him and others today!

Answering Nothing

“Then Pilate asked Him again, saying, ‘Do You answer nothing? See how many things they testify against You?”  Mark 15:4

“But Jesus still answered nothing, so that Pilate marveled.” Mark 15:5

Lies and accusations can steal our peace, time and energy.

Thank You, Lord, for being the truth we can respond to. And here’s a simple poem . . .

So many lies and accusations

are spoken and inferred

but I don’t have to worry

or give back a single word

 

for I have a Good Shepherd

who speaks Truth to me each day

to Him I will respond

listen and obey.

God bless you as He speaks Truth to you today!
