Jesus is my Keeper

 

(Paraphrase of Psalms 23)

Jesus is my Keeper; I’ll be content

as He leads me day by day

to pleasant places

to be renewed in him

along life’s pathway.

Although I often stumble through

many trials and snares,

I’ll not be dismayed

 by the evil doer

as Jesus calms my fears.

How my Lord continues to

keep sustaining me

with daily showers of his

blessings with love,

mercy, and peace.

Now I know that without a doubt,

His goodness will stay with me

all the days of my

earthly life

until heaven’s gates I see.

Born

027

Born to die to hopelessness; born to live in God’s amazing grace.

Born to suffer and endure; born to rest in God’s warm embrace.

Born into worldly sin; born to learn of God’s great love.

Born to be forgiven by the Lord who lives far above.

Born to walk on this earth in humility and trials, yet in hope.

Born to be a light by showing the eternal brightness of tomorrow.

Born to feel pain, shed tears and quietly weep

Letting God gently wipe our tear streaked cheeks.

Born to live in renewed joy and peace today

While walking in God’s love throughout the outstretched day.

Born to endure the long nights when sleep does not come easily.

Born to quietly lie still while the Lord keeps us company.

Born not to remain stuck and glued to our hurting present or past

But to thrive in lasting hope while onto Jesus, holding fast.

Born to wait ever so trusting and ever so patiently

Knowing that one day, Jesus’ shining face, we’ll finally see.

Friday Verse Journal Hebrews 11:6

011_8A

In the trials of every day life; whether the day be easy or difficult, or whether I face disappointment, failure, or triumph, I need to remember to hold onto faith:

F A I T H

Forever

Adoration, belief, and trust

In Jesus, our friend, Savior and

True Son of God living in

Heaven and our hearts forever

Hebrews 11:6 (Holy Bible New International Version):

 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
