Return And Submit


Surrender your attitudes
to Me

whatever they
may be

and I will help you
to submit

so only My love
is seen.


I can submit in love to others for You are with me.


“Then Sar’ai said to Abram, ‘My wrong be upon you! I gave my maid into your embrace and when she saw that she had conceived, I became despised in her eyes. The LORD judge between you and me.’ “

“And He said, ‘Ha’gar, Sar’ai’s maid, where have you come from, and where are you going?’ She said, ‘I am fleeing from the presence of my mistress Sar’ai.’ “

“The Angel of the LORD said to her, ‘Return to your mistress, and submit yourself under her hand.’ “.

Genesis 16:5,8,9 NKJV

I Do Not Change


I am the Lord

My mercy
never ends

and be forgiven

trust Me and My


I can always return to You, for You are with me.


“For I am the LORD, I do not change; therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob.”

” ‘Yet from the days of your fathers you have gone away from My ordinances and have not kept them. Return to Me, and I will return to you,’ says the LORD of hosts.”

Malachi 3:6,7 NKJV

God’s Invitation


May I turn to You
over and over

instead of
running back

so I may know
the freedom of salvation

the rest of You fighting
on my behalf.


You are with me and always invite me to return to You.


” ‘Woe to the rebellious children, ‘ says the LORD, ‘who takes counsel but not of Me, and who devise plans, but not of My Soirit, that they may add sin to sin; who walk to go down to Egypt, and have not asked My advice, to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharoah, and to trust in the shadow of Egypt!’ “. Isaiah 30:1-2 NKJV

“And Moses said to the people, ‘Do not be afraid. Stand still and see the salvation of the LORD, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians who you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The LORD will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.’ “. Exodus 14:13,14 NKJV

“For thus says the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel: ‘In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and confidence shall be your strength. But you would not.’ ” Isaiah 30:15 NKJV


For the next two weeks I will be doing little poems inspired by The Power Of Quiet, a bible study written and taught by Aimee Walker ( )and The Joyful Company

I return
rebuild and

for I’m in
the business
of healing

You establish my renewal.

“Behold, I will bring it health and healing; I will heal them and reveal to them the abundance of peace and truth. And I will cause the captives of Judah and the captives of Israel to return, and will rebuild those places as at the first .” Jeremiah 33:6,7 NKJV

Even if I
must break you

in order for you
to see

I will do
whatever it takes

for you to return
to Me.

You establish my need of You.

“Then you will break the flask in the sight of the men who go with you, and say to them, ‘Thus says the LORD of hosts: “Even so I will break this people and this city, as one breaks a potter’s vessel . . .” ‘ “. Jeremiah 19:10,11 NKJV

Return to Me
for I am merciful

it is never ever
too late

and I will handpick shepherds
to care for you

according to My love
which is great.

You establish the way of repentance for me.

“‘Return, backsliding Israel,’ says the LORD, ‘I will not cause My anger to fall on you, for I am merciful,’ says the LORD. ‘And I will give you shepherds according to My heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding.’ ” Jeremiah 3:12,15 NKJV

First Love


Remember from where
you’ve fallen

repent and do
your first works

returning to Me
your True Love

the One who knows
your real worth.

Jesus is my established first love.

“I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; and you have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary. Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lamp stand from its place – unless you repent.” Revelation 2:2,3,4,5 NKJV

Submit Yourself

“So the Angel of the LORD said to her, ‘Return to your mistress, and submit yourself under her hand.’ ”  Genesis 16:9  NKJV

Submitting can be one of the hardest things to do.

Thank You, Lord, for teaching us first to submit to You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Lord, as You
grow us

to live in submission
to You

we can
submit to others

knowing You’re in control
there too.

God bless you as you submit yourself to God and others.

“Return to Me, and I will return to you,” says the LORD of hosts.

“But you said, ‘In what way shall we return?'”  Malachi 3:7 NKJV

When I turn to God, I always see that He has never left me.

Thank You, Lord, for making it so easy to return to You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

You are
always with me

You have
never left

and every time
I turn to You

I see You
and am blessed.

God bless you as you turn to Him today!

“Then she arose with her daughters-in-law that she might return from the country of Moab, for she had heard in the country of Moab that the Lord had visited His people in giving them bread.” Ruth 1:6

Things can be going along so well that I don’t even notice I have moved away from God.

Lord, I long to return to You daily / hourly / moment by moment. For You alone have what I need to survive. And here’s a simple poem . . .

He Visits Us

Floating in His peace
blessed – just so blessed

how did we end up here today
in such an inner mess?

Oh let us return to You, Lord
over and over again

to the land of Your sustenance
where You visit us with bread.
