Finding Grace

 

Finding grace
in Your sight

doesn’t entitle me
to more than the next

but means I have
the promise

of Your Presence
and rest.

**********

The One who gives the grace of His Presence and rest is with me.

**********

“Now therefore I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight. And consider that this nation is Your people.”

“And He said, ‘My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.’ “

Exodus 33:13,14 NKJV

Not Allowed

 

With the blood of Jesus
on us

the destroyer
cannot strike

as we are given
freedom

and the promise of
new life.

**********

The One who delivers from bondage is with me.

**********

“For the LORD will pass through to strike the Egyptians; and when He sees the blood on the lintel and on the two door posts, the LORD will pass over the door and not allow the destroyer to come into your houses to strike you.”

“And you shall observe this thing as an ordinance for you and your sons forever.”

“It will come to pass when you come to the land which the LORD will give you, just as He promised, that you will keep this service.”

Laughter

 

Hard pressed
barren

seemingly running
out of time

yet we can joy
in Jesus

knowing His ways are
lovingkind.

**********

You establish the gift of laughter.

**********

“The LORD kept His word and did for Sarah exactly what He had promised. She became pregnant, and she gave birth to a son for Abraham in his old age. This happened at just the time God said it would. And Abraham named their son Isaac. Eight days after Isaac was born, Abraham circumcised him as God had commanded. Abraham was 100 years old when Isaac was born.”

“And Sarah declared, ‘God has brought me laughter. All who hear about this will laugh with me. Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse a baby?  Yet I have given Abraham a son in his old age!’ “

Genesis 21:1-7

“And now I stand and am judged for the hope of the promise made by God to our fathers.”  Acts 26:6 NKJV

Jesus is our Hope and our Promise.

Thank You, Lord, for the hope Your promises contain.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Jesus is the hope
of the promise

that God gave us
long before

coming to bring

and eternal life
restore.

God bless you as you have Hope today!

Profitable

“For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable in all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come.”  1 Timothy 4:8
