10-17-15 Strength Renewed

flying eagle

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Isaiah 40:31 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

A bride, a child, a servant and a friend

All wait upon the One who’s worth the wait;

Anticipation breathes without an end,

And hope in confidence does actuate.

Beyond the veil all faith is magnified,

Baptized in love so deep and then returned,

Borne on the sigh of Spirit undenied

Back to the one who waits a grace unearned.

Climb heavenward on graceful eagle wings,

Called on by strength renewed the promised land.

Come now revived and run to arms that brings

Caresses to the soul at last in hand.

Devotion to the Lord brings fortitude.

Delivered with a kiss is love pursued.

4-7-15 Abound in Hope

abounding in hope

When we give all to God we’re filled with hope,

Believing that He’ll give us what we need

To live abundantly and not just cope,

To live for Him alone in thought and deed.

And when we live for God, the Holy Ghost

Directs our every step along the way.

Then through the march of life, from post to post,

Our hope may then abound until that day

When we approach that final mortal breath,

Such peace and joy will fill our hopeful soul.

Anticipation swells when facing death,

For there the life beyond is real and whole.

The hope you need to make it through the night

Is soon replaced with love when day shines bright.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Now the God of hope fill you

with all joy and peace in believing,

that ye may abound in hope,

through the power of the Holy Ghost.

Romans 15:13 KJV

101514 Not Worthy

happy

Imagine that the first day of the year

Is filled with nothing but calamity,

But all the days that follow full of cheer;

To count the year a blessing you’d agree.

No matter how you suffer in this life,

If you’re a child of God it’s worth the grief.

It seems to last forever, but this strife

Compared to life eternal ’tis but brief.

And those unsaved that call this living hell,

If they think this is bad they’ve just to wait.

Anticipating joy, the saved know well

The promise God has made the next estate.

This life is full of pain, there is no doubt;

The bliss that lies ahead will make you shout.

~~~~~~~~~~~

For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy 

to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Romans 8:18 KJV
