Where You go I go...

There's a time when you can freely live in humanity, then there comes a time when you must relent your humanity to the L-rd so that you will live freely in Him.

L-rd, I relent to Your commands. I give everything to You. I acknowledge my failure to be perfect, but that You love my failures - You love everything about me, including my mistakes, because those mistakes draw me closer to You. I love You, that You have never given up on me - not one person under Your authority is without Your love, but those who live in ignorance cannot know Your full amount of Glory, for they love their ignorance, and they choose not to accept Your correction.

Thank You for Your correction. Thank You for making me right in Your eyes, that You never cease to love us. Thank You for pointing out our error, that we may rectify the fallen things in our lives. Thank You for choosing us, Your children, to make note of the things that need help and deliverance. Thank You for the deliverance, that we are no longer held captive within the walls of the Pharaoh, but are held tightly in Your love - not as captives, but as co-heirs to Your eternal throne.

Thank You for Your throne, L-rd. Thank You that You sit in a place of overseeing - that we may not have a need to rely on our own near-sighted vision, but know that in Your Kingdom, all things have passed, all things prophecy is come to pass, all those who have died are living, all those who are living are walking with You within Your gates. Amen, L-rd, that we need not expect to walk without You. Amen, that we need not tarry in wait upon Your command, for Your command is always righteousness. Your command is always good. Where You go, I go, what You pray, I pray... amen.

Thank You, L-rd my G-d, You are the King of the universe, the G-d who is True and Just; You are the everlasting King of Israel.

Your Love is Enough

*This is an unedited, not-revised poem that I jotted down a moment ago during devotions. It's not meant to be magnificent or epic, just my thoughts in verse.

"15 We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves. 2 Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up. 3 For Christ did not please himself, but as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproached you fell on me.” 4 For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. 5 May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, 6 that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. 7 Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God." Romans 15:1-7 (NIV).

I love You, I love You, I love You G-d... 
when words fail me,
when nothing but a raging river
of incessant tears fills my eyes...

I love You.

When You sing not a song
but set my mind to wonder
When You whisper not a word
But set my eyes to seek
Your face

I love You.

When You turn my head to the right or left
When You take me by the hand
and say, "Enough child, follow me."

I love You.

When nothing is enough
and yet You died for me...

I love You.

My G-d, my G-d,
Why have I forsaken You?
Why have I forgotten You?

But Your love endures forever...

If my eyes were still filled with tears,
It would have been enough.
If my mind was yet unclear,
It would have been enough.
If I was still not in finding my way,
and yet I trusted in Your lead...
It would have been enough.

If my cup was empty,
and yet You still stood by me...
It would have been enough.

But You have not forsaken us
You have not forgotten us
And You dried my tears
and You held my head in Your hands
And You are still guiding me out of the wilderness...
And Your love will be enough.
For in You I do not crave the flesh of the earth
but crave the bread of life
In You I no longer look to the kings of Israel,
but to the King of Glory...
Diyanu, it is enough.

Micro Teaching #2: How then, do we teach the Elders?

"Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance." Titus 2:2 (NIV)

How then do we teach the last generation how to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith love and endurance? ...By living our own lives to reflect the Word of G-d. Simple, no? Well, no, it isn't... trust me it isn't! To show G-d's love in all situations is one of the hardest things we as the human race can do, and likely one of the last things we will learn how to do in the end of days.  But if we are willing, the L-rd will always show His ways, and teach and guide us. So, "awake o' sleepers, shake off the dust of night, and arise! For the Glory of the L-rd, our Messiah, has risen upon you!"

Have a good Monday everyone!

My Beautiful Bride...

"He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ." Colossians 1:28 (NIV)

Thank You L-rd for Your plan to make us Your beautiful bride; thank You that You have a love so unwavering, so faithful, so grand, that we cannot comprehend.  Thank You that everything in history was created for us, as a wedding present for Your love of loves, Your song of songs.... and You L-rd, are the Love of loves, and the Song of songs... Yeshua You are my love, my life, and I thank You so much for the life You spent for our iniquities; that whoever believes in You IS redeemed! You are my awesome G-d, the creator of all things!  O' how we love You so!  You, the most handsome groom, who loves the bride so much that You even died to get us back.... O' how I love You L-rd, my King of all kings... Amen.
