This is a bit different for me, but as you read, I believe it will be a word of encouragement for each of us as we keep our eyes and heart set on Jesus Who loves us. Love ya, Denise xoxox
“Sleeping sound throughout the night.
Dreaming a dream birthed in white.
Eyelet and threads of fine yard,
Woven in expectation of a new birth to be born.
Waking in peace as I remembered the plan.
At the end, I was rushing to pack,
For the plane would soon land.
Departure was imminent,
Its time was sure,
12:40 marked the numbers I saw on the door.
In peace and pleasantness I pondered these events.
“Lord, are You birthing something new in me, or is the message deeper sent?”
But as I lay in the folds of the breaking dawn,
My peace escaped me as the morning dove’s song.
Worry and anxiety replaced all birthed in me,
As I recalled the days of this now place in our current history.
Fighting back the fear of the doubts,
I grasped to recall the dream’s details shout.
“Departure at 12:40” but what was that all about?
So I searched the Scripture to see what I could see.
Psalm 12 has 8 verses, and David speaks it well.
“The wicked prowl on every side.”
So this verse could not tell.
Psalm 124 has 8 verses,
The Songs of Ascent.
David recalls the Lord’s faithfulness in their life’s events.
“Blessed be the LORD Who has not given us as prey to their teeth.” Verse 6
Written in the margin,
Next to the teeth,
“They gnashed their teeth at Him.”
Spoke of my Jesus Who knows their deceit.
Thinking of the Man Who died for my sins.
Remembering He knows and has experienced the
Pain I’ve been in.
Fire ignited and I thought,
“Look in Luke!”
Maybe, the answer is found in his Book.
Well lo and behold, the verse spoke well clear.
Draw near my soul,
For I’ll write it down here.
“Therefore you also be ready,
For the Son of Man is coming
At an hour you do not expect.” Luke 12:40
One can’t get a better answer than that.
My Jesus is speaking directly to me.
“Do not have an anxious mind.” Luke 12:29
Nor a heart filled with anxiety.
“Do not fear, little flock,
For it is your Father’s good pleasure
To give you the Kingdom.” Luke 12:32
“For where your treasure is,
There your heart will be also.” Luke 12:34
“Let your waist be grided and
Your lamps burning.” Luke 12:35
“Blessed are the servants who the Master,
When He comes,
Will find watching.” Luke 12:37
For the Lord will surely come “quickly” Revelations 22:20
And make “All things new.” Isaiah 43:19
For continue to trust Me,
For I’m coming back for you.”
“I will come again,
And receive you to Myself;
That where I AM,
There you may be also.”
