Verses: Part One ( From Praising to Petitioning, to Interceding)

Scripture reference;

“No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.” John 6:44

24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

25 Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;

26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:

28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.” Acts 17:24-28

 

Isn’t it fascinating how our thoughts can trek currents in that sparsely charted sea to which we refer as, “Our Knowledge of Him?”

 

I was having some quiet time today relaxing and reflecting on the beautiful way the Lord has cared for me as I once described it in a poem and devotion I wrote here  a few years ago:

 https://serenadedinseconds.wordpress.com/2015/04/21/r-is-for-rose/

For a long time now this verse has surfaced in my mind quite often… whenever I take the time to consider the Lord’s steadfast love and  the tender mercies that He has lavished on me:

“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.” Psalm 23:6

My thoughts about my “rose” devotion lead me to that Bible verse. I have clung to it often while praying this line from “The Lord’s Prayer”:

“And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.” (Luke 11:4b)

Then I thought about how I often exchange the word “us” for the word “me” in that line. This thought lead me to reckoning and to resting in the fact that I can pray these words the next time I am feeling a burden for my brothers or sisters in the Lord:

“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow them all the days of their lives: and they will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.” Psalm 23:6

The next thing I knew, I was pondering these words of Fanny Crosby that were surfacing in my mind:

I am Thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice,
And it told Thy love to me;
But I long to rise in the arms of faith
And be closer drawn to Thee.

Then I paused and thought of those people I have known who have professed that they do “not” believe in the message of the gospel, and felt sad and began to compose another verse. I like to think she wouldn’t mind if  I shared it here:

 

There are those you’ve made in your image, Lord,

Who are still in unbelief;

Give them eyes to see.  Grant them ears to hear

So they would abide in Thee…

 

Draw “them” nearer, nearer blessèd Lord,
To the cross where Thou hast died.
Draw “them” nearer, nearer, nearer blessèd Lord,
To Thy precious, bleeding side.

 

Will you pray these verses with me?  ❤

“Daily”

Scripture reference;

“23 Who remembered us in our low estate: for his mercy endureth for ever:

24 And hath redeemed us from our enemies: for his mercy endureth for ever.

25 Who giveth food to all flesh: for his mercy endureth for ever.

26 O give thanks unto the God of heaven: for his mercy endureth for ever.” Psalm 136:23-26 KJV

 

Daily I long to know the Lord better and to think, speak, and do what is right.

Daily I succeed a little.

Daily I still fail a lot.

Daily I am persuaded that the Lord still loves me and will never fail me.

Rejoicing… introduction: “Dance With Me”

“Dance With Me” by Orleans

“Dance With Me”

Dance with me, I want to be your partner
Can’t you see the music is just starting
Night is calling, and I am falling
Dance with me

Fantasy could never be so giving
I feel free, I hope that you are willing
Pick the beat up, and kick your feet up
Dance with me

Let it lift you off the ground
Starry eyes, and love is all around us
I can take you where you want to go

Dance with me, I want to be your partner
Can’t you see the music is just starting
Night is calling, and I am falling
Dance with me

[Musical Interlude]

Let it lift you off the ground
Starry eyes, and love is all around us
I can take you where you want to go

Dance with me, I want to be your partner
Can’t you see the music is just starting
Night is calling, and I am falling
Dance with me

Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the…

“The Issues of life”: Introduction

I was reading a blog post that is written by someone who is so precious in both the Lord’s sight and in mine. It got me thinking about spiritual bread. Below is a link to her post and a prayer that I like to pray.

Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.

And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.

And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command…

“Revive Us Again” by William P. Mackav

 

We praise Thee, O God!
For the Son of Thy love,
For Jesus Who died,
And is now gone above.

Refrain

Hallelujah! Thine the glory.
Hallelujah! Amen.
Hallelujah! Thine the glory.
Revive us again.

We praise Thee, O God!
For Thy Spirit of light,
Who hath shown us our Savior,
And scattered our night.

Refrain

All glory and praise
To the Lamb that was slain,
Who hath borne all our sins,
And hath cleansed every stain.

Refrain

All glory and praise
To the God of all grace,
Who hast brought us, and sought us,
And guided our ways.

Refrain

Revive us again;
Fill each heart with Thy love;
May each soul be rekindled
With fire from above.

Refrain
