Rooted in the Word

Quote from Chuck Swindoll from his book “Growing Strong in the Seasons of Life”

How long

The winds do blow

Upon my weary head!

I dig in my heels, standing firm

In Him.

Cinquain

As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him,

rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.

Colossians 2:6-7 NKJV

Abundance

Lavender plant abundantly blooming

Abundant

Blessings in the Lord

Plethora

Opulence

Of grace, love, mercy,

Faith and hope in Christ

Shadorma

And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. 1 Timothy 1:14

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 1 Peter 1:3

Lord,

Sky with clouds

Whom have I but You?

To help when I’m sad and blue,

To plant a new seed,

To lift me in times of need,

To listen to prayers I plead.

Tanka

(Based on Psalm 73: 25-26)

Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.

My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.

Thank You Lord, for always bring there for me, to listen, care and help.

Resting in Him

Bible, coffee cup, Psalm 94:19 scripture

As my heart fills with perplexity

And threatens to overwhelm my soul

My minds fills with Your words to me

Comforting with precious

Promises so sweet

And remembrance

Of Your care

Towards

Me

Nonet

In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul. Psalm 94:19 KJV

New Year—No Fear

Moses and Red Sea

Stand still and you will see

The salvation of the Lord

Don’t look back, look at Me

Stand still and you will see

Deliverence! Free you’ll be

From that chronic pursuing hoard

Stand still and you will see

The salvation of the Lord

Triolet

And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. Exodus 14:13

“Have a Marvelous or Mediocre Day”

Church tower with cross, Lamentations 3:22-23 scripture verses

Given new mercies

Everyday, why accept

Mediocracy?

Senryu

It is of the LORD’S mercies (goodness, kindness, favor)

that we are not consumed, (destroyed, ended)

because his compassions ( tender love, caring) fail not.

They ( goodness, kindness, favor, caring, tender love) are new every morning:

great is thy faithfulness )

Lamentations 3:22-23

If God offers us the chance to have a marvelous day every morning, why do we settle for less?
