Walking with The Word

Cross and light reflected

I don’t walk alone

The Word safely leads me

He is the Light I need

To guide my feet each day

And keep the darkness away

Tanka

(Based on Psalm 119:105 and John 8:12)

In a lowly manger He lay

The Prince of Peace in goodwill came

The Mighty God upon the hay

In a lowly manger He lay

God came upon earth that day

Everlasting Father His name

In a lowly manger He lay

The Prince of Peace in goodwill came

Triolet

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 KJV

Thoughts On Love

The word LOVE

Love never ends.

It’s easy to love someone

Who also loves you

Someone who’s true

Who’s patient and kind

And of the same mind

It’s easy to love that someone

It’s not easy to love someone

Who doesn’t love you

Someone who’s untrue

Who’s impatient and unkind

And of a different mind

It’s not easy to love that someone

But Jesus said to love everyone

Even that someone

Who doesn’t love you

Who’s impatient and untrue

Of a different mind or unkind

Who’s arrogant and rude everyday

Who selfishly insists on their own way

Loving everyone is not easy, tis true

But it’s something Jesus told us to do

Rhyme

Jesus said: “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you,…” John 13:34

What 1 Corinthians 13 says about Love:

Love is patient and kind;

love does not envy or boast;

it is not arrogant or rude

It does not insist on its own way;

it is not irritable or resentful;

it does not rejoice at wrongdoing,

but rejoices with the truth.

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never ends.

Morning Mood

Bag of Tears

Joy stealer entered

A visitor in the night

Left a bag of tears

Senryu

Psalm 30:5 says

“Weeping may endure for a night,

But joy comes in the morning.”

But, what if joy doesn’t come in the morning? Wonder if more weeping and anxiety comes?

Well, since we know that God does not lie, we know God’s word is true. Therefore, if what He says is not happening we need to figure out why.

Why didn’t joy come in the morning?

Because the enemy stole it from us. The joy stealer struck in the night. He took our joy and left us in tears.

Jesus said in John 10:10 that : “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”

So, whoever this thief is, whether it’s the devil, our own flesh, the world, or a person, we can recognize that he’s a joy stealer, a thief that needs to be banished from our life. But how?

God’s word says His mercies are new every morning,

“Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not, They are new every morning;…

Lamentations 3:22-23 NKJV”

So every morning we can choose to throw that bag of tears away from us, and reach out to grasp the joy that God brings us each morning by believing His word and claiming it.

And every night before we go to bed we can cover ourselves with the blood of Jesus and the Armor of God so that the thief will not be able to break in and steal from us anymore.
