Foreign

“Stretch out Your hand from above;
Rescue me and deliver me out of
great waters,
From the hand of foreigners,
Whose mouth speaks vain words,
And whose right hand is a right
hand of falsehood.”  Psalm 144:7-8

David repeats this statement twice in Psalm 144, not afraid of being politically incorrect.

Lord, please deliver me from all “foreign” thoughts, and the vain words and false actions that can follow.  And here is a simple poem . . .

Stretch Out Your Hand

Please rescue me
and deliver me

out of the
great waters

of foreign thoughts
and vain words

and the falsehood
that follows.

His Blood Be On Me

“When Pilate saw that he could not prevail at all, but rather that a tumult was rising, he took water and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, ‘I am innocent of the blood of this just Person. You see to it.’ ” Matthew 27:24
“And all the people answered and said, ‘His blood be on us and on our children.’ ” Matthew 27:25

I understand the context in which the above words were spoken, but something in me wants to say “indeed” and “amen”.

Oh Lord, let Your blood be upon us and on our children, covering us and washing away our sins. Here’s a simple poem . . .

Rescued

I would that there
had been no cross
no beatings, no blood

but then there would’ve been
no sacrifice, no atoning
no forgiveness of my sin

so I stand within the multitude
guilty of Your blood
and rescued by its flow.
