Wait Silently

not like the others

Rare to find something alive on the front of the car.

“My soul wait silently for God alone. He is my defense; I shall not be moved. Power belongs to God. Also to You, O Lord, belongs mercy.”  Psalm 62:5,6,11,12  NKJV

Power
belongs to Me
and mercy
is also Mine

that you might wait
and not be moved
from
My time line.

There Is Forgiveness

“If You, LORD, should mark
iniquities
O LORD, who could stand?

But there is forgiveness with You;
That You may be feared.”  Psalm 130:3-4

I’m in awe of God’s power to forgive.

Lord, please teach us to be powerfully forgiving.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Powerful Enough

Man-made gods
don’t forgive
and people can
forget to

but our God
who created all
is powerful
enough to.

Where Power Belongs

“God has spoken once,
Twice I have heard this;
That power belongs to God.
Also, to You, O Lord, belongs mercy . . .”  Psalms 62:11-12

I am so glad that power – and mercy – belong to God.

Lord, please teach me the power of being merciful this year.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Who Else But You

Who else would we want
power to belong to
Who else would we want
to own mercy but You?

For You know  just when
to use power now
and also when nothing
but mercy will do.

Real Strength

“O You his Strength, I will wait for You.”  Psalms 59:9

I tend to think I’m stronger than I really am.

Lord, please teach me how to rely on Your strength and not my own.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Wait and See

Our strength isn’t in the number
of pounds we can lift

nor in the amount of miles
we jog to stay fit

but in the power
of His Holy Spirit

and our joy as we trust
in all He’s doing yet.

 

(Happy New Year to you and yours! )

Awesome Majesty

“He comes from the north as golden splendor;
With God is awesome majesty.
. . .He is excellent in power,

In judgement and abundant justice;
He does not oppress.
Therefore men fear Him . . .”   Job 37:22-24

A majestic Holy just God IS a fearsome thing!

Oh Lord, help us remember not to fear those who judge us , are unjust and oppress . .. because we have You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Fearsome

Before His splendor
we fall down
and His majesty
reflects and surrounds
as He judges us plainly
justice in His hands
the same palms that were pierced
out of His love for man.

Of Power And Love

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”  2 Timothy 1:7

God gives us so much.

Lord,  thank You for supplying us with exactly what we’ll need today.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Sound

I give you My Spirit
of power and love

and a sound mind
to think clearly from

making sure you have everything
you need for this day

to meet the challenges
that come your way.

Glorified

“Therefore we also pray always for you that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness and the work of faith with power,

that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.” 2 Thessalonians 1:11-12

Our glory comes from being in Christ.

Lord, may we live to glorify You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

“And You In Him”

Then name of the Lord
is glorified in us

as our only hope
is found in Jesus

by the work of faith
with power and prayer

God counts us worthy
and fulfills us there.

Full of Faith

“And Stephen full of faith and power, did great wonders and signs among the people.” Acts 6:8

Stephen was one of seven chosen from the multitude of disciples to serve and over see at the distribution tables.

Lord, let us not underestimate Your power within us, regardless of our position within the congregation or place in life. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Like Stephen

Full of faith and power
in Jesus who was raised

doing signs and wonders
giving Christ all the praise

one among the multitude
gathered in His name

what keeps us from believing
that we can do the same?

We are house sitting again for the next couple of weeks, and I will try to keep up if I can! If I can’t, thank you for your patience until we get done! God bless you!
