Between the “Still” and “Wait”

When I thought, “My foot slips”

Your steadfast love, O Lord, held me up.

When the cares of my heart are many,

Your consolations cheer my soul.” Psalm 94:18 ESV

“Time line –

Between September and October.

Between Still and Wait.

Between Here and Now.

Between Walk and Faith”.

For we walk by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7 ESV

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!”

“Let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.” Romans 12:2

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,

Denise

Colors of Hope

“LORD,

You’ve planted a vision

Deep inside of me.

Stir up the colors,

Refresh my eyes to see.

Plans for the future,

Guided by Your Son.

“To prosper and not harm me,

You’ve purposed everyone!”

 

“For I know the thoughts

That I think toward you,

Says the LORD,

Thoughts of

Peace and not evil,

To give you a

Future and a hope.”

Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV

Hidden Between the Rows

“What creepth here beneath the light;

Moving about without a sight?

Little frog,

Or cricket so.

A snake,

A bug,

I do not know.

You’ll keep me safe,

This I know,

As I till among my garden row.”

 

“I know all the birds of the hills,

And all that moves in the field is Mine.”

Psalm 50:11 (ESV)

A Brand New View

“It’s a battle of heart and dread as Jacob grapples with the man he was, and if he survives the night, the man he will become.”

“It’s an eleven day journey”

From captivity and blue.

What holds me back from a

Brand new view?

I’ve trekked this mountain

Far too long;

Open up my heart,

For in Your Peace I do long.”

 

“It’s a battle of heart and dread as Jacob grapples with the man he was, and if he

survives the night, the man he will become.”

You Walked for Me

“From the sands of the sea

Your heart is set on me.

Through the expanse of time the

Cross it does remind.

You walked all the way for me;

From Your heart flowed Calvary.”

 

“How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!

How great is the sum of them!

If I should count them,

They would be more in number than the sand.”

Psalm 139:17-18 NKJV

The King of Kindness

“Your mercy is new each morning;

A gentle breeze touched by Light.

Intercession for my weakness;

The King of Kindness,

All Power and Faithful Might.”

 

“Now it happened on the third day that Esther

Put on her royal robes and stood in the inner court

Of the King’s palace…when the King saw

Queen Ester standing in the court, that

She found favor in His sight…” Esther 5:1-2 NKJV

 

Esther’s Hebrew name is “Hadassah” which means “Myrtle”.

“ ‘But My kindness shall not depart from you,

Nor shall My covenant of Peace be removed.’

Says the LORD,

Who has mercy on you.” Isaiah 54:10 NKJV

Mimosa Sweet

“Entreat me not to leave you”

Cause my feet to stay.

Breathing in Your fragrance

Mimosa sweet

Summer day.”

“Entreat me not to leave you,

Or turn back from following after you;

For wherever you lodge,

I will lodge;

Your people shall be my people…”

Ruth 1:16 NKJV

Heart Dance

“Easy like Sunday morning”

I can hear the music’s strand.

Perfect heart and harmony

To dance upon the land.

Morning light,

Birds in flight,

The song of cooing doves.

“Easy like Sunday morning”,

All blessings from above.”

“His glory covered the heavens

And the earth was full of His Praise.”

Habakkuk 3:3 NKJV
