PRESSING FORWARD

 

Pray in the morning and in the quiet interludes of the day;

Release to God all your cares and your worries along the way.

Enter and remain in God’s holy presence

Surrounded by his unchanging love and

Saturated with his all amazing grace.

Internal struggles that only he understands,

Now alleviated by his unseen yet compassionate hand.

Goodness and mercies, he has kept in store

Filter softly down in a warm sunlit shower.

Open heart and open mind to hear his word

Remembering he is God: Jesus is Savior and Lord

Who abides in you and promises to forever stay.

Advance and step now into the unknown future of this day

Remembering and trusting in him as you go;

Doubting never that God is everlastingly faithful.

 

Proverbs 3:5-6 (Holy Bible English Standard Version):

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean

on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge

him and he will make straight your paths.”

The Quiet Gift

 

The commotion of the day

gently ebbs away

into the twilight eve and

descending darkness.

No more worries or

dilemmas to solve.

No more demands to meet

or deadlines to defeat.

No more explanations of why

or expectations you tried so

hard to satisfy.

Just a sweet time to

be with the Lord;

remembering his gentle word

to be still and quietly rest.

A time of thoughtful reflection

Of that day’s direction.

A time to overcome disappointment,

pain, and tears of sorrow

with renewed hope for tomorrow.

By sleeping beneath the Lord’s

silent yet comforting hand

until the sun rises again;

the gift of peace and quietness.

The Christmas Tree

Although late, I still want to share a new Christmas poem. I hope everyone who is reading this has had a wonderful and blessed Christmas:

Carefully placed and standing where all can see

Heralding angel poised above the pine needle green.

Rows of colorful lights brighten the scene

Infused and trimmed by love unseen.

Stars, snowflakes, and bulbs adorn the limbs

Trustfully reminding us of him and the

Manger scene where he was born;

Arriving long ago on Christmas morn.

Shepherds heard and flocked to see the sight;

Taught by angels who appeared in a great light.

Remembering and honoring many years later

Eventual arrival of the Lord Jesus, our Savior;

Everlasting King who will rule forever and ever.

SIMPLY TRUST

014

Steadfast and sincere belief

In Almighty God and his Son Jesus.

Mindful and obedient to His true and holy word;

Personally accepting Jesus as Savior and Lord.

Living each day in joyfulness and not sorrow;

Yesterday’s tears washed away by hope for tomorrow.

Tenderness and kindness shown to everyone I see;

Remembering God’s never ending love shown to me.

Unwavering faith in the goal of reaching heaven.

Serving gladly and sharing about Him.

Teachable soul continuing to depend on Jesus

by praying and  being led daily by his Holy Spirit.

Journeying FORWARD into the New Year

004

Facing boldly the unknown future

Overcoming obstacles and barriers

Remembering that God is always with me

Walking with Jesus forever beside me

Achieving new dreams; reaching new heights

Renewing friendships and strengthening family ties

Determined to press on in love, peace, and joy of life

Friday Verse Journal Matthew 6:6

PRAYER: Spending Time with God

Personal conversation and

Reflection with God, my Heavenly Father

Admission of sin and plea for forgiveness and mercy

Yesterday’s generous blessings remembered

Everyday needs requested and met through God’s perfect grace

Remembering always God’s greatness and never ending love through Jesus

 

Matthew 6:6 (Holy Bible New International Version):

“But when you prayer, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen.  Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”
