Remember Me

 

Remember Me now
as your Creator
before your days are done
on this earth

letting My words be
as well driven nails
trusting Me more
than your works.

A laid down life is created by God and returns to God.

“Remember your Creator before the silver cord is loosed. . .Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, and the spirit will return to God who gave it. The words of the wise are like goads, and the words of scholars like well-driven nails, given by one Shepherd. For God will bring every work into judgement, including every secret thing, whether good or evil.” Ecclesiates 12:6,7,11,14 NKJV

Strife

 

Do not be quick
to tell tales
that only add
to strife

but carefully
choose your words
so that they’re full
of life.

A laid down life kindles life.

“Where there is no wood, the fire goes out; and where there is no tale bearer, strife ceases. As charcoal is to burning coals, and wood to fire, so is a contentious man to kindle strife. The words of a tale bearer are like tasty triffles, and they go down into the inmost body.” Proverbs 26:20,21,22 NKJV

Happiness

 

 

Commit
yourself to Me
so your thoughts
can be established

and you will find
trusting Me
to be the root of your
happiness.

A laid down life’s thoughts are established.

“Commit your works to the LORD, and your thoughts will be established. He who heeds the word wisely will find good, and whoever trusts in the LORD, happy is he.” Proverbs 16:3,20 NKJV

Enduring

 

Give thanks to Me
for I am good
and My mercy
endures forever

trusting in Me
your Strength and Song
more than you do
each other.

A laid down life has an enduring Mercy.

“Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! Because His mercy endures forever. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. The LORD is my strength and song , and He has become my salvation.” Psalm 118:1,8,14 NKJV

Your Shield

 

You cannot trust
in idols
they do not see
or hear

trust only in
your King of Glory
your true help
and shield.

A laid down life has a trustworthy help and shield.

“Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but to Your name give glory. Because of Your mercy, because of Your truth. Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. Eyes they have, but they do not see; they have ears, but they do not hear. You who fear the LORD, trust in the LORD; He is their help and their shield.” Psalm 115:1,4,5,11. NKJV

Longing

 

Blessed are you
who trust in Me
longing for Me
and Me alone

crying out with all
your heart and flesh
no good thing
will I withhold.

A laid down life longs for God.

“My soul longs , yes, even faints for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. The Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts, blessed is the man who trusts in You!” Psalm 84:2,11-12 NKJV

When The Right Thing To Do Feels Wrong

220px-Rumunia_5806

“But Onan knew that the heir would not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in to his brother’s wife, that he emitted on the ground, lest he should give an heir to his brother.”  Genesis 38:9 NKJV

I understand Onan’s desire to look out for himself.

Thank You, Lord, for helping us do the right thing when it feels wrong.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

When the right
thing to do
is hard
and humbling too

help us trust
and lean on You
and not our own
personal view.

God bless you as you trust Him today!

True and Righteous

“And I heard another from the altar saying, “Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgements.”  Revelation 16:7

I can make good and bad judgements.

Thank You, Lord, for always making true and righteous judgements.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

You are the Lord
God Almighty

Your judgements
are righteous and true

You see the motives
and hearts of men

knowing who’ll yet repent
and turn to You.

God bless you as you trust in His true and righteous judgements today!
