Wait Silently

IMG_0387 waiting on
car’s bumper
not like the others

Rare to find something alive on the front of the car.

“My soul wait silently for God alone. He is my defense; I shall not be moved. Power belongs to God. Also to You, O Lord, belongs mercy.”  Psalm 62:5,6,11,12  NKJV

Power
belongs to Me
and mercy
is also Mine

that you might wait
and not be moved
from
My time line.

Emptied Out and Ruined

“For the Lord will restore the excellence of Jacob
Like the excellence of Israel,
For the emptiers have emptied them out
And ruined their vine branches.”  Nahum 2:2

Those involved in restoration projects go to great lengths to get it right.

Thank You, Lord, for seeing when I’m emptied out and ruined, and then carefully restoring me.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Though I am
emptied out and ruined
nothing good here
to see

You come to
replace and restore
Your excellence
in me.

God bless you as He restores you today!

This One

“And He shall stand and feed His flock
In the strength of the Lord,
In the majesty of the name of the Lord His God;
And they shall abide,
For now He shall be great
To the ends of the earth,
And this One shall be peace.”  Micah 5:4

I have been extra hungry lately.

Thank You, Jesus, for feeding me in the strength and majesty of Your name.  And here’s a simple poem  . . .

And He shall stand
and feed His flock
in the majesty and greatness
of the Lord.

And they shall abide
in His presence
filled with peace
and of One accord.

God bless you as He feeds you today!
