Be Still and Know

Cross in Clouds

Be Still and Know

Be still and know that I am God.

Be still and know that I am the Creator of heaven and earth.

Be still and know that I knit you together in your mother’s womb.

Be still and know that I discern your thoughts from afar.

Be still and know that I am the God who heals.

Be still and know that I am the God of comfort.

Be still and know that I am steadfast and abounding in love.

Be still and know that I am slow to anger.

Be still and know that I will not leave you nor forsake you.

Be still and know that I am a refuge in times of trouble.

Be still and know that I forgive your sin.

Be still and know that I have a plan for you.

Be still and know that I am sovereign.

Be still and know that

Be still and know that I am God.

Our God

cloud

I am not a poet, but this morning I was reminded of how awesome our God is and the only way I could express it is through a poem entitled Our God.

Our God is unchanging

He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow

His love for us never changes

His love for us is not dependent upon our love for Him

Our God is faithful

His faithfulness to us isn’t dependent upon our faithfulness to Him

He forgives us for our sins and draws us back to Himself

Our God never leaves us, He pursues us

He created us and has plans for us

His power is made perfect in our weakness

Our God is worthy of our thanks and praise

I pray this poem serves as a reminder to you of how awesome our God is!

Hebrews 13:8

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

1 Chronicles 16:34

Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!

Psalm 36:5

Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds.

Matthew 26:28

for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

Hebrews 13:5

Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

2 Corinthians 12:9

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Surrender

Surrender to the Lord

All we are

All we have

Never part, always all

Not a laying down, but a placing in

Not getting rid of, but handing over

Into His capable hands

Stop fighting

Don’t hold on so tight

Open your clenched hand

Relinquish control

To the One who loves you

He knows what’s best

He has a plan

Step out of your comfort zone

And into His

If Only

Here is a poem I wrote about how different things would be if we put our trust in the Lord.

If Only

If only I trusted that I am worthy of love, I wouldn’t let people use and abuse me.

If only I trusted that I was chosen to be a child of God, I wouldn’t dwell so much on the times my earthly father disappointed me or hurt my feelings.

If only I trusted that I am God’s masterpiece, I wouldn’t believe what others have said about my appearance.

If only I trusted that I am holy and dearly loved, I wouldn’t listen to the hurtful comments people have said to me.

If only I believed I was an heir to the King of Kings, I wouldn’t spend so much time and energy trying to acquire material things.

If only I trusted that I belonged to a royal priesthood, I wouldn’t be so worried about fitting in here on earth.

If only I trusted that my sins are forgiven, I wouldn’t spend my time beating myself up over mistakes in the past.

If only I trusted that God had a plan for me and a purpose for my life, I would be willing to step out of my comfort zone and into His.
