Looking For A Dwelling Place?

“Lord, who may abide in Your tabernacle?
Who may dwell in Your holy hill?”  Psalm 15:1

David goes on to list the attributes of those who may.

Lord, without Your forgiveness, mercy and grace, I would still be standing outside.  And here is a simple poem . . .

In Forgiveness

Who may abide in
Your tabernacle

who may dwell in
Your holy hill

but the ones who
have confessed

and trusted in
Your forgiveness.

Journeying By Cloud

“Whether it was two days, a month, or a year that the cloud remained above the tabernacle, the children of Israel would remain encamped and not journey; but when it was taken up, they would journey.” Numbers 9:22

I’ve thought it would be so nice to have a cloud like this to guide me.

Lord, please help me to know when to stop and stay, and when to go, by the power of Your Holy Spirit. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Holy Spirit Compass

We don’t have a cloud hovering by day
or the appearance of fire at night
to show us the way to go
and when the time is right

but He has given us His Spirit
to guide us through this life
to help us take those steps of faith
as our inner compass of Holy sight.

Separated

“Thus you shall separate the children of Israel from their uncleanness, lest they die in their uncleanness when they defile My tabernacle that is among them.” Leviticus 15:31

We have an older house, with older appliances and fixtures and furniture. Try as I might, I can’t make everything look clean and new anymore.

Father, we thank and praise You for sending us Your only Son, Jesus Christ, to separate us from our uncleanness, our sin, this day. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Cling Free

Egg yolks separate
from their whites
– and oil sits atop
– water all right
but my uncleanness
can cling to me
– until I come to Jesus
– and see it nailed to His tree.

Methods of Mobility

“The poles shall be put in the rings and the poles shall be in the sides of the altar to bear it.”  Exodus 27:7

Everything God told Moses to make for the tabernacle contained a way for it to be lifted and carried.  The people were still in the process of leaving Egypt behind and getting to their promised land.  But that didn’t mean God wasn’t with them as they traveled.

Thank You, Jesus, for being wonderfully mobile and taking us with You wherever You go.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Arrival Time?

Though we’ve not arrived yet
doesn’t mean that we’re lacking
just means we’ve got to keep
pressing on with Him

picking up the tools He gives
to use and carry with us
willing to keep moving
closer and closer with Him.
