The Things Which He Suffered

 

 

You learned obedience
through suffering

even though You are
God’s Son

and being perfected
became the Author

of our eternal
salvation.

**********

I can learn obedience for You are with me.

**********

“. . . though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered”

“And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him.”

The Grace Of God

 

The grace of God
that brings salvation

has appeared to all
men

teaching us how
to live and love

looking for His coming
again.

**********

I can live out the grace of my salvation, for You are with me.

**********

“For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men,”

“teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously and godly in the present age, “

“looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ.”

Titus 2:11,12,13. NKJV

He Remains Faithful

 

If we die with Him
we shall live

if we endure
with Him we’ll reign

if we deny Him
we’ll be denied

if we’re faithless
His faithfulness remains.

**********

I can endure all things, for You are with me.

**********

“Therefore I endure all things for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.”

“This is a faithful saying: For if we died with Him, we shall also live with Him.”

“If we endure, we shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us.”

“If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself.”

2 Timothy 2:10,11,12,13. NKJV

Psalm 9 Selah

 

I may not like
how I am feeling

but it doesn’t change
who You are

so I can worship
and always praise You

telling of Your goodness
near and far.

**********

You are with me and I can pause and worship You, no matter what.

**********

“I will praise You, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works.”

“I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.”

“He shall judge the world in righteousness, and He shall administer judgement for the people in uprightness.”

“Have mercy on me, O LORD! Consider my trouble from those who hate me, You who lift me up from the gates of death, “

“that I may tell of all Your praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion. I will rejoice in Your salvation.”

“Put them in fear, O LORD, that the nations may know themselves to be but men.”   Selah

Psalm 9:1,2,8,13,14,20. NKJV

Psalm 3 Selah

 

You, O Lord
are a shield for me

when the enemy
surrounds

lifting my head
and sustaining me

in You
my blessing’s found.

**********

I can pause to evaluate my situation and who You are in it, for You are with me.

**********

“Lord, how they have increased who trouble me! Many are they who rise up against me.”

“Many are they who say of me, ‘There is no help for him in God.’ “

“But You, O LORD, are a shield for me, my glory and the One who lifts up my head.”

“I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the LORD sustained me.”

“Salvation belongs to the LORD. Your blessing is upon Your people.” Selah

Psalm 3:1,2,3,5,8. NKJV

Of The Day

 

We are not
in spiritual darkness

but sons of light
daughters of day

wearing our breastplates
of faith and love

with the confident hope
of the saved.

**********

I have a confident hope and assurance of salvation, for You are with me.

**********

“But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should over take you as a thief.”

“You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor darkness.”

“But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and as a helmet the hope of salvation.”

1 Thessalonians 5:4,5,8. 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 ( http://www.onbecomingesther.com )and The Joyful Company

(http://www.JOYFULLIFEMAGAZINE.COM  ). I encourage you to go to their sites!

High Time

 

Now is the time
to awaken

to be clothed in our Lord
Jesus Christ

the night is far spent
and the day is at hand

to put on His armor
of light .

*********

You are with me and clothe me in light.

*********

“And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.”

“The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.”

“But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.”

Romans 13:11,12,14 NKJV

It Is Advent: Come

 

Out of the stump
a shoot will grow

yes, a new Branch
bearing fruit will come

with the Spirit of the Lord
fully upon Him

and salvation for all
yes, for every one.

**********

You establish a new Branch.

“Out of the stump of David’s family will grow a shoot –
yes, a new Branch bearing fruit from the old root.
And the Soirit of the LORD will rest on Him –
the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
the Soirit of counsel and might,
the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD . . .”

“In that day the heir to David’s throne
will be a banner of salvation to all the world.
The nations will rally to Him,
and the land where He lives will be a glorious
place.”

Isaiah 11:1-2,10

 

Note:  I’ll be writing little poems inspired by Ann Voskamp’s , The Greatest Gift.  :).
