Splendor’s Light

“Thank You, Father, for this day.

Peace settles as a gentle way.

Paths before me, open doors.

Abundant life, so much more!

Let my heart trust in You.

Let not it wrestle as its prone to do.

For we walk by faith and not by sight,

Let my head follow my heart,

On the Your path of Splendor’s light.”


“Your Word is a lamp to my feet

And a light to my path.”

Psalm 119:105 NKJV


“I’ve chosen to obey Your truth

And walk in the splendor-light of all that You teach me.”

Psalm 119:30 TPT


Splendor, light filled, path’s way.

Day’s Door

“Cat claw in the morning,

Starting off the day.

Better ask for wisdom,

To make it through the fray.”


= The day’s highest protection. =

The revelation of Your Word makes my pathway clear…

Breathe life into me again by Your living Word.”

Psalm 119:105 & 107 TPT

Good Hope

“Pencil and rhyme together,

Lifting up my praise.

For in You, I have my heart, and

Good hope for all my days.”


“Uphold me according to Your Word,

That I may live; And do not let me be

Ashamed of my hope.”

Psalm 119:116 NKJV


Uphold me…resting upon the wings of the Dove.


Blessings,

Denise

Breaking of Bread

Good morning Lord,

Thank you for this day.

Set aside to celebrate,

And remember Your Faithful ways.

Although the shelves have been empty,

And lack covers our Land,

In Your tender Mercy,

You’ve provided abundantly from Your hand.

Welcome to our table,

Prepared and blessed by You.

Let us always give thanks, for we know,

Perfect Peace is found only in You.”

In Jesus Name, Amen


“So continuing daily with one accord…

They ate their food with gladness

And simplicity of heart,

Praising God…”

Acts 2:46-47 NKJV


Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

Blessings,

Denise

Casting my Net

“Sun not up over the horizon yet.

The sea is quiet as I cast my net.

Reaching out into the depths of the day;

Lord,

Please, keep the winds of adversity at bay.

Speak, “Peace, Peace!” to the beating storms,

Peace, Peace!

For the prayers of the watchmen guard the shores long.

Under the covenant and mercy of You,

Casting my net to sail dreams of new.”


“Jesus shouted to them, “Throw your net over the starboard side, you’ll catch some!” And they did as He said, and they caught so many fish they couldn’t even pull in the net.” John 21:6 TPT


Delightfully sharing memories of one of the greatest joys of my heart, pilgrimage to Israel.

Strength Us


Good morning LORD,

El Ohiym, Adonai.

You never change, or ever lie.

Bring forth Your justice as the rising sun.

Our world is shaking, rocking, for each and every one.

Cause the evil hearts of men to turn to love instead;

For peace is found in freedom and not in fear and dread.

Lifting up those hurting, sick and displaced.

In Your care Lord, we place them for You alone are

The Creator of the whole human race.

Come Lord Jesus! We wait on You.

Strengthen us as You tarry,

For we place our trust in You.


“For my soul trust in You;

And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge,

Until these calamities have passed by.”

Psalm 57:1 NKJV

Notes Ring


“Windchimes remind me the

South breeze blows.

Notes ring the air,

“Only He knows.”

Changing is coming,

Sure as the breeze.

It may not have happened yesterday,

But according to Your Word Lord, please.”


“God is a just Judge,

And God is angry with the wicked every day.

If He does not turn back,

He will sharpen His sword;

He bends His bow and makes it ready.”

Psalm 7:11&12 NKJV


“In Him also we have obtained an inheritance,

Being predestined according to the purpose of Him

Who works all things according to the

Counsel of His will…”

Ephesians 1:11 NKJV


“…and proclaim liberty throughout all the land

To all its inhabitants…” Leviticus 25:10 NKJV


Amen!

A Good Expectation


“Thank You Lord, for this day.

No expectations, only play.

Snoring dog on pillow resides;

Christmas tree in hope reminds.

This year has nearly come to close,

But here at Your feet,

 A confident expectation of Your good

In the coming new year glows.”


“Out of Zion, the Perfection of Beauty,

God will shine forth.

Psalm 50:2 NKJV

Enjoying the last days of 2021.

Blessings to you and your household from Abby and me.

Denise

Peaceful Heart

“Thank You Lord for Your faithfulness;

Yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Let me not borrow pain;

Nor be another’s sorrow.

Thank You for reminding me,

Even when I sleep,

You’re looking out for all my ways,

And in Your health You’ll keep.

Fix my eyes on Your plans;

Peaceful heart and stable land.

Assured You speak the best to me,

For in Christ Jesus,

I’m truly free!”


“You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You;

Because he trust in You.”

Isaiah 26:3 NKJV

Home healing from the change of seasons winds.

May you and your household be in perfect peace, and health today.

Blessings,

Denise

Thankful Goodness

“My heart is filled with wonder, a good and pleasant theme.

Thanksgiving to my Savior, Who never, no, not once, forgot or abandoned me.

Thankful for His goodness, drawing me each day.

His beauty seen in nature; for He is the only way.

Sunrises on the morning,

Light in rainy days,

Protection when darkness hovers,

Correction when I’ve lost my way.

I’m thankful for Your Presence,

Immanuel with me.

For in Your Peace and Kindness,

My heart sings out to Thee!”


I will worship You, Yahweh, with extended hands as my heart erupts with praise!

I will tell everyone everywhere about Your wonderful works!

I will be glad and shout in triumph.

I will sing praise to Your exalted name, O Most High.”

Psalm 9:1&2 The Passion Translation


My family and I are celebrating Thanksgiving today as it is my son’s day off from work.

Blessings to you and your family as we embrace this week of Thanksgiving!

Pencil and Prayer

“Good morning Lord. Now that I’m here how do I separate writing and prayer?

Both are written on my heart, but where does the line begin and the prayer start?

Search me, O Lord, and find me new. For I bring this pencil and paper in dedication to You.”


Dedication – Strong’s Hebrew #2598 – chanukah. It was used to show something was officially in service.


“Oh LORD, You have searched me and know me. You know my rising up; You understand my thoughts from afar off…and are acquainted with all my ways ” Psalm 139:1:2 NKJV

“You know everything I’m going to say before I start the first sentence.” Psalm 139:4 The Message

You know every step I take before my journey begins. You’ve gone into my future to prepare the way, and in kindness You follow behind me.” Psalm 139:5 The Passion Translation


May you be blessed to know the kindness of the Lord Who prepares the day ahead and hears the dedications written in our hearts.

Blessings, denise

Delightful Plan

“It is your Father’s good pleasure…”Luke 12:32 NKJV

“Good morning Father.

Delight me in Your Word.


Open up Your Truths

So I can clearly see;

For I know Your delight is set on me.


Show me the way to go

For my path is in Your hand.


Cause my feet to walk steady,

And in Your Word I’ll safely stand.”



“The LORD God is my strength;

He will make my feet like deer’s feet”

Habakkuk 3:19 NKJV
