Shut In

 

Trust Me to
provide you with

everything
you’ll need

as I shut the door
on yesterday

and draw you close
to Me.

**********

I am okay when doors are closed, for You are with me.

**********

“So those that entered, male and female of all flesh, went in as God had commanded him; and the LORD shut him in.”

Genesis 7:16 NKJV

Rich

 

Let us be rich
in good works

ready to give
willing to share

not trusting in
wealth and money

but in our God
and prayer.

**********

I can be rich in good works for You are with me.

**********

“Command those who are rich in this present age, not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.”

“Let then do good, that they be rich in good works , ready to give, willing to share,”

“storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.”

1 Timothy 6:17,18,19 NKJV

How Merciful

 

How merciful
You are to me

how kind are You
Jesus

for You filled me
with Your love

and showed me how
to trust.

**********

You are with me and have mercy on me.

“Oh, how kind our Lord was, for He showed me how to trust Him and become full of the love of Christ Jesus.”

Part 2: Trusting In His Name

I asked God about her. About me taking care of her. He says, “She needs someone to count on. She needs activities to count on.” Then He says, “You can count on me and what I give you to do. You shall trust in the name of the Lord.”

You Are Good

 

Oh Lord You are good
and great in power

guiding my feet in the way
they should go

and in the day of
pain and trouble

You are my faithful
stronghold.

**********

You are great in power and You are with me.

“The Lord is slow to anger and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked.”

Feeding On His Faithfulness

 

I can be still
and patient

knowing You’re with me
in this wait

feeding on
Your faithfulness

trusting You’re never
too late.

My Alliance
