The Land of The Unforgiving!

Forgiveness by Michael Hickman free photo #4015

Lord, tonight I fell out of sorts,
lonely and a little sad too
and I am longing for the day
that I’ll be spending with You.

The highs and the lows,
of this everyday living . . .
makes me weary of dwelling
in the land of the unforgiving.

So many just can’t let go,
nor forget the pain of their past
in their minds they relive the hurt
of the stones, others have cast.

They dwell on the negative,
in their misery they mope
they will not listen when I say
You ~ are their only hope.

They need grace and mercy,
they need to learn to forgive
so that they can have peace
and in You, victoriously live.

But, they’d rather be crippled,
by their hurt and their pain
then to come to You . . .
for any spiritual gain.

Lord, tonight I am so weary,
I want peace that will last
help me to help them . . .
to forgive, others for their past!

Colossians 3:12-13
King James Version

“Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved,
bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness,
longsuffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another,
if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you,
so also do ye.

Dry Bones and Arid Places!

Wilderness by Steve Kirkeby free photo

When God takes you into a valley,
of dry bones and arid land
you can be sure He’ll be with you
and give you the power to withstand.

For, He promises not to forsake us,
when devastation comes our way
nor cut us off from His mercy
but send His glorious hope to our day.

When you’re in a spiritual desert,
and there’s no water left in your well
you can be confident in knowing
His Spirit in you will always dwell.

For, God promises to meet His child,
at the lowest points of their life
and He will give you the strength
to out-run the heels of  strife.

When God take you into odd places,
like Jonah was in the day . . .
you can count on one thing
it’s not where He’ll have you stay.

For, whether it be a whales belly,
or your own spiritually dry pit
He has something for you to learn
before He takes you out of it!

Jonah 2 :1-3
King James Version

“Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish’s belly,
And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD,
and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I,
and thou heardest my voice. For thou hadst cast me into the deep,
in the midst of the seas; and the floods compassed me about:
all thy billows and thy waves passed over me.”

Rules for Daily Living!

psalm-63-4 by darrell creswell used with permission

Wake up today,
decide to have a good day
rejoice and be glad in it
let Jesus show you the way.

Dress up today,
put a smile on your face
don’t worry what to wear
let God clothe you in His grace.

Stand up today,
trust what you believe in
don’t be weary of doing good
lest you fall into sin.

Look up today,
faith makes all things bright
don’t let your fears and doubt
outshine the future glorious light.

Reach up today,
get in touch with something higher
trust God in all your ways
let His power set you on fire.

Lift up today,
raise up your hands in prayer
sing to God your praises
then let Him have your cares!

Psalm 118:24
King James Version

“This is the day which the Lord hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.”
