To The Pure


To the pure
all things are pure

to the unbelieving
nothing is

choose to know God
and do good works

being obedient
and fully His.


I can have a pure mind and conscience, for You are with me.


“To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; but even their mind and conscience are defiled.”

“They profess to know God, but in works they deny Him, being abominable, disobedient, and disqualified for every good work.”

Titus 1:15,16 NKJV

A Pure Offering


Bring to Me
your purest offerings

whatever you have
without blemish

for I am truly
your Great King

Who you can trust
with your very best.


I can give You my very best, for You are with me.


” ‘For from the rising of the sun, even to it’s going down, My name shall be great among the Gentiles; in every place incense shall be offered to My name, and a pure offering; for My name shall be great among the nations,’ says the LORD of hosts.”

” ‘ But cursed be the deceiver who has in his flock a make and takes a vow, but sacrifices to the Lord what is blemished – for I am a great King,’ says the LORD of hosts, and My name is to be feared among the nations.”

Malachi 1:11,14 NKJV

I am watching
always watching
and see
the good you do

turning away wrath
with soft answers
and a pure
heart too.

A laid down life is watched by God.

“A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. The eyes of the LORD are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good. The words of the pure are pleasant. The heart of the righteous studies how to answer.” Proverbs 15:1,3,26,28 NKJV

All Or Nothing

“To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; but even their mind and conscience are defiled.”  Titus 1:15

I live with someone pure and it’s a tremendous blessing.

Lord, thank You for purifying us more and more so that we can see only You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

The Pure

source –

To the pure
all things are pure

deeply etched and
completely sure

mind, heart and soul

seeking and seeing Jesus
mile after mile.

“They Sought Their Listing”

“And these were  the ones who came up from Tel Melah, Tel Harsha, Cherub, Addon and Immer, but they could not identify their father’s house nor their lineage, whether they were of Israel . . .” Nehemiah 7:61

“These sought their listing among those who were registered by genealogy, but it was not found; therefore they were excluded from the priesthood as defiled.”  Nehemiah 7:64

When we take a drink of water, we don’t want to find anything else floating around in it.

Oh Lord, we desire to be pure in thought, word and deed for You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .


There is much to read
to listen to, to watch

source – purewaterdistributors.comto listen to, to watch

that is good
and true

but not all of it’s pure
and of the Spirit

and able to work
in us for You.

A Holy Incense

“You shall make of these an incense, a compound according to the art of the perfumer, salted, pure and holy. And you  shall beat some of it very fine, and put some of it before the Testimony in the tabernacle of meeting where I will meet with you.  It shall be most holy to you.”  Exodus 30:35-36

I have a dear friend going through intense struggles.  Her life is pressed and crushed daily, a very fine worship of Her King.

Oh Lord, may I not resist becoming a very fine incense for You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

The Very Fine Kind

By the greatest Artist of all
we are compounded, stirred and mixed
salted, made holy and purified
for such a time as this.

And some lives are further crushed
into a very fine incense
put forth as a testimony
a great and holy witness.
