Serving isn’t
a distraction

a worrisome thing
to do

but springs forth
from devotion

and My time
spent with you.

You establish my serving through devotion.

“But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, ‘Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me.’ And Jesus answered and said to her, ‘Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things’ “. Luke 10:40,41 NKJV

Faint of Heart


Though you
are troubled

and your heart
is faint

I’ll rescue
and restore

it’s who I am
it’s why I came.

You establish my restoration.

“See, O LORD, that I am in distress; my soul is troubled; my heart is overturned within me, for I have been very rebellious. For my sighs are many, and my heart is faint.” Lamentations 1:20,22 NKJV

“Then the people of the land tried to discourage the people of Judah.  They troubled them in building, and hired counselors against them to frustrate their purpose all the days of Cyrus king of Persia, even until the reign of Darius kind of Persia.”  Ezra 4: 4-5

Efforts to build in Jerusalem and to remove temple artifacts are still being troubled and discouraged.

Lord, we thank You that Your desires and plans for us will be fulfilled despite the set backs and frustrations that come against us.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

We can have doubts
about what we’re doing
when trouble and frustration
begins to come

but God is aware
of all that’s happening
and will never be
shut down or out done.
