“Crumbs of yesterday filling plates;
An empty state.
Open up Your treasure store;
Rain down Manna from Heaven’s door. “
“It is the bread the LORD has given you to eat…
Each one is to gather as much as he needs…
He who gathered much did not have too much, and
He who gathered little did not have too little.
Each gathered as much as he needed.” Exodus 16:15-18 (NIV)
Poem by denisebalog©
“At first break of light
Break forth Your Holy hand.
Pour out upon Your anointed;
The Son “poured out” for man.”
“I AM poured out like water…” Psalm 22:14
“…like a lamb that was led to slaughter…”Isaiah 53:7
The Hebrew definition of this Scripture can be translated as this:
“…like an animal, He was pushed out, brought forth with pomp, to be butchered.”
– The cost of this road is becoming far to clear. My whole being wants to turn away, hid my eyes, close my mind. To turn away now, was not an option for Jesus, the Perfect Lamb of God Who was slain for me. –

He freely went.”

Lord may my,
“Mind to be opened,
Ear to hear,
Heart to understand;
Hand to receive,
Foot to stand.
For on bended knee in the Garden,
You fulfilled the Father’s plan.”
“For I have come down from heaven,
Not to do my own will but
The will of Him Who sent me.” John 6:38
