“Then the men who were designated by name rose up and took the captives, and from the spoil they clothed all who were naked among them, dressed them and gave them sandals, gave them food and drink, and anointed them; and they let all the feeble ones ride on donkeys.  So they brought them to their brethren at Jericho, the city of palm trees.  Then they returned to Samaria.”  2 Chronicles 28:15

I once was held captive by sin, ransacked and naked, starving and bereft of hope.

Lord, thank You for saving me, restoring me and returning me to the place I belong . . with You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Brought Back                                       

Love clothes me
and feeds me
and fills up
my flaws.
Love anoints me
and establishes me
in the presence
of all.


“So David recovered all that the Amalekites had carried away, and David rescued his two wives.”  1 Samuel 30:18
“And nothing of theirs was lacking, either small or great; sons or daughters, spoil or anything which they had taken from them; David recovered all.”  1 Samuel 30:15

As a confirmation of what He would restore to me, God once returned 3 items within a week that I thought were lost for good.

Lord, we cry out like David and his men, that all the enemy has taken be returned and restored to us. And here’s a simple poem . . .

All Will Be Returned

What has been taken
I will return to you

in full measure
it will be restored

for I’m in the business
of recovering

all that’s been lost
to thief and by force.
