Light Will Shine on Your Ways

“Season of beginnings

And brand new.

But first;

Graduation’s path of time to embrace, and

Walk on through.”

 

“You will decide on a matter, and it

Will be established for you, and

Light will shine on your ways.”

Job 22:28 (ESV)

 

“For everything there is a season…

A time to be born,

A time to plant,

A time to heal,

A time to laugh,

A time to dance,

A time to embrace.”

Treasure Store

“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)

Like a Lamb Brought Forth

“…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. –

Poem to Ponder

“He set His “face like flint”,

determined onward, 

He freely went.”

Heart to Understand

 

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

Movement of Tent

“To move our tents

Beneath the “terebinth’ tree,

To live in the land

You have given to me.

Separate myself from the

World of “Lot” and flesh.

Looking forever upward;

For in You

Is my dwelling and the rest.”

 

“And the LORD said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him,

“Lift your eye now and look from the place where you are –

Northward, southward,

Eastward, and westward,

 

 

For all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever…

Arise and walk through the land its

Length and width for I give it to you.

 

 

 

Then Abram moved his tent, and went and dwelt by the terebinth trees of Mamre.”

Genesis 13:14-18 NKJV

Intercession’s Gate

Prayer garden in the Garden of Gethsemane.

“Words are prayers

Sent forth in faith.

Shepherd waiting at

Intercession’s Gate.

Hearing utterances

Of those You know;

Moving powerfully to bestow.

Peace,

Healing,

Action wide.

Intercession,

Your Holy Stride!”

Those who come to God through Him,

Since He always lives to make intercession for them.”

And that they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10 NKJV

Wisdom’s Rest

“Arise let us go from here.” John 14:31

“Entering into Sunday’s rest.

What this week holds

Jesus knows best.

Begin the day at His feet;

Protection,

Counsel,

And Wisdom

He does bequeath.”

 

Peace I leave with you,

My Peace I give to you;

Not as the world gives do I give you.

Let not your hearts be troubled,

Neither let it be afraid…

Arise let us go from here.”

John 14:27 & 31 (NKJV)

Restoring Oil

“The pain subsides,

In passing time.

New day dawns,

Restores the oil.”

 

“Therefore we do not lose heart.

Even though our outward man is perishing,

Yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.”

2 Corinthians 4:16 NKJV
