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.

8-8-15 Undoing Satan’s Plan

Healing

32 And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils.

33 And all the city was gathered together at the door.

34 And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.

Mark 1:32-34 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

Before the serpent dared deceive poor Eve

The Garden was a paradise on Earth.

There was no sickness and no cause to grieve;

No sin existed, no defect or dearth.

But after Adam fell and sin moved in,

Disease and devils grew across the land.

Then Jesus came and let His work begin,

Rebuking and undoing Satan’s plan.

Christ showed us all with action what to do,

Now that we are ambassadors of His:

Reclaim the Garden, in His name renew,

Beginning in ourselves the way Christ is.

With Jesus in control, God’s kingdom come;

With love prepare for New Jerusalem.

11-24-14 Create in Me

heart drop

Forgive me, Lord, the sins I’ve held onto;

Create in me a heart that’s pure and clean;

I’ve lost my way, but You know what do do;

I need Your grace, on only You I lean.

O God, I am not worthy of Your love,

But Jesus said if I believe in Him

I’ve everlasting life with You above,

And I believe without Christ my light’s dim.

Renew my spirit, Lord, please make it right;

On You I wait and pray all through the day;

Your mercy fills my soul and shines so bright,

I thank You for Your Son who shows the way.

Lord, hear my voice, I’m down here on my knees;

God, make me whole, it’s You I long to please.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Create in me a clean heart, O God;

and renew a right spirit within me.

Psalm 51:10 KJV
