Bridal View

Reservations cancelled and scheduled for another time and season.

In the midst of this storm we ride out together there is hope in our future.

 

“Today I thought Your plan involved a wedding in Virginia.

Family gathered, hugs and kisses, future commitment.

Instead You’ve revealed Yourself so clear.

“Draw into My Presence”

For I Am Your shelter, joy, and wedding feast,

Hope unlimited.”

 

“I will greatly rejoice in the LORD,

My soul shall be joyful in my God.

For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation,

He has covered me with the robe of righteousness,

As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments,

And a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

As the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth,

So, the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth

Before all the nations.”

Isaiah 61:10-11 NKJV

“Cats at the window

Bird’s in view.

Coffee in the brew.DSC_6765

 

Oh, I’ve enjoyed the season; rest and family time.

Open up the year LORD,

Direct my steps according to Thine.”

At the Gate of Different

“A dream before seen.”

Different.

“Sometimes you have to do things different.

A walk before talk.

A dream before seen.

A harvest a bit early, but never too late.

A thought at the gate;

The future awaits!

Sometimes you have to do things different; causing your heart to anticipate!”

Morning Devotional time sent from my phone.

Blessings,

Denise

Stand and Tell

“For you are the aperture of My eye.”

“Skies cleaning;

Fall nearing.

Anticipation in all Your plans;

Confident all is well.

For by Your Blood I stand and tell,

“Do not be afraid, be of strong courage!”

For I AM with you always.

Do not be dismayed or discouraged,

For I Will fight your battles at hand.

For I AM God, and not mere man.

Keep your eyes focused true,

For you are the aperture of My eye, and I do not, ever, no ever, move My sight or heart from you.”

Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are Mine. When you go through deep waters, I will be with you.” Isaiah 43:1-2

Morning prayer and devotional from my phone.

Blessings to you for your day,

To give you a future and a hope.”

In Dreams We Went

“I woke,

I slept,

In dreams

We went,

Across the sky

His Promise led.”

 

“Then you shall

Delight yourself in the LORD;

And I will cause you to ride

On the heights of the earth,

And feed you with the

Heritage of Jacob

Your father.

The mouth of the LORD

Has spoken.”

Isaiah 58:14

 

Poem by denisebalog©2018

On the eve of departure to the Holy Land.

She asked again, “What do you seek?”

As the countdown to a real life journey next week to Jerusalem,

May I share the desire of what I seek in the new year 2018.

May you each be blessed in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ as we continue to purse and be sought by Him.

 

She asked again,

“What do you seek?”

 

“I seek a trust,

As between a

Husband and wife.

The maturity to stand firm

Amidst the chaos of life.

 

The desire to blush,

As a new, young bride,

Listening as my Bridegroom

Whispers by my side.

 

Faith that doesn’t question,

And doubt

Every time I hear the enemy going about.

Confidence to know,

You’ll work it all out for my good;

Even when I’m wrong or I’ve misunderstood.

 

May I seek to know

More of Your ways.

Faith to depend

Only

In Your Faithfulness

During the darkest of days.

For in You,

Christ Jesus,

Is the fullness of Life.

For I am blessed to know,

You call me

Your wife.”

 

“And as a Bridegroom rejoices over the bride,

So shall your God rejoice over you.” Isaiah 62:5 NKJV

 

“I am my Beloved’s and my Beloved is mine.” Song of Solomon 6:3 NKJV

And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.” Isaiah 61:10 NKJV
