Just Give Me Jesus

What is this sadness that I feel. This grief that overwhelms me to despair, when I think of you on the cross. Your life you gave, for my sin.

Temptation, mocking and ridicule, you endured all of this. Pain, rudeness, disrespect continued to the end. All of this you endured for my sin.

You said, “It’s finished”. You suffered and paid the debt for all sin. I will never be alone. Your follower I will be.

JUST GIVE ME JESUS

 

BE STILL

   BE STILL

Be still in the moment.
Listen, look at life.
Acknowledge Him.
          

 

 

PSALMS 46:10

10 Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth! NKJV

As freezing temperatures approached,  I  cut the stem and brought the blooms inside.

Keep Me Focused On The Purpose

While walking in my yard yesterday and I noticed an amaryllis bulb that had grown and produced a  strong stem with a richly colored bud.

Single Amaryllis Bulb Focused on Its Purpose

 

I knew it was  getting ready to open into a beautiful amaryllis flower. This is the first year for one stem to grow by itself. There are many more bulbs at the same spot that have not grown yet.  I was fascinated by this one amaryllis fulfilling its purpose, all alone, yet strong and beautiful. Hence the poem below:

 

focused on the purpose

 

Job 14:1-2
Man born of woman
is short of days and full of trouble.
He blossoms like a flower, then withers;
he flees like a shadow and does not last.
(HCSB)
