When the King comes,
In His glory.
Will the earth rejoice?
This morning as I was creating some Christmas Artist Trading Cards for an upcoming group swap I decided to use one of the playing cards I had on hand for a background. The card I happened to choose was the King of Hearts. Immediately the chorus from the hymn “The King of Glory” popped into my head. This had to be sent by God as I have not heard nor sung this song for years.
By a strong faith
In the power of God
Not in the wisdom of mankind
“Your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.”
1 Corinthians 2:5 KJV
Many gifts are waiting
In my Father’s house.
Only good and perfect gifts
Are waiting to be found.
James 1:17 KJV Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
Like falling leaves
Blessings coming down
From Father of Lights
With whom there’s no end
Too many to count
So I just say “Thank You”
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
James 1:17 KJV
Be still and know
Rest and trust Him to empower
Breathe in His wonder and sweet song

Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10 KJV
Power of darkness is broken
Broken are the heavy chains
Chains that kept me accepting darkness
Darkness that now no longer remains
God in rich mercy sent His Son to deliver
Deliver me from the power of darkness
Darkness flees the embracing light
Light of the Kingdom I now possess
He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, Colossians 1:13 NKJV
OctPoWriMo 2019 prompts: broken, darkness, embracing light,–suggested form: Loop
