The Subtle Bridge

Scripture First Mentions –
Between the words “Separate” and “Servant”
is the “serpent”.

Yep,
Separate – Jesus calls – Come follow Me.

Servant – our hearts are opened to His.

but right there in the middle…is the “serpent”
“who was more subtle than any beast…” Genesis 3:1

“…who was more subtle…” comes in many forms.

Sickness, distractions, the list can go as far as that bridge pictured.


With that said, my husband is on the road to recovery from surgery. Yesterday I was very concerned because it was not going as “quickly” as I thought recovery should be heading. As for myself, I made a doctor appointment -right ear continues from sinus issues.

My heart is “separated” to desire, but the “serpent” who is more subtle…has placed many distractions before this “servant.”


(I had to cancel the house Bible study meeting this evening)


One last “word”. Jesus is SO sweet to encourage us in our daily walk.

One small word is placed before the word ‘serpent’ in the Concordance.

Seraiah” 2 Samuel 8:17
“who was the scribe

Definition – Jah has prevailed. The name of 9 Israelites – and was mentioned in the context of one who served in King David’s administration.

Thank You Jesus, in Your tenderness, there still room to serve in the King’s administration and court. I loved the number 9…Nine fruits of the Spirit; nine gifts of the Spirit; and oh yea, been studying on the NINE candlestick lamp the Menorah!

Light the way my King!
Jesus, You are the Servant Lamp!!

Humble Bold

dscn3307

“Good morning Lord,

I come before You

Humble bold.

Share Your thoughts;

Secrets untold.

In this place of praise and prayer,

I bring my heart and bare it there.

Strip away the worldly crust;

The jagged pieces, the bits of rust.

Sing over me Your rejoicing song;

For from Your heart,

A new day is born.”

dscn3306

 

“He will rejoice over you with gladness,

He will quiet you with His love,

He will rejoice over you with singing.”

Zephaniah 3:17 NKJV

Snow’s Timing

dusting-of-snow-640x494

“A “dusting” of snow,

Well don’t ya just know!

Was waiting on a winter

Blanket to show!

Layer of white,

Would be a delight!

I guess we’ll sit tight

Till the timing’s just right.

Cause “snow” didn’t happen

This particular night!”


“God thunders marvelously with His voice;

He does great things which we cannot comprehend,

For He says to the snow, “Fall on the earth’;

Likewise to the gentle rain and the heavy rain of His strength.”

Job 37:5-7 NKJV
