Dispute: Purpose: Prayers and Poetry

                   

                    Dispute

                    It is bewildering 

                    when loving

                    believers who

                    work together

                    bound in focus

                    wanting only to 

                    be committed to the Lord's

                    work and yet although each

                    beloved we

                    wonder why our

                    behavior becomes a

                    wrecking ball and we

                    build defining

                    worth now seen as a

                    battleground.

Psalm 18:41, "They cried for help, but there was none to save, Even to the Lord, but He did not answer them."

Forgive: Purpose: Prayers and Poetry

Philippians 4: 3-4, “Yes, I ask you also, true companion, help these women, who have labored side by side with me in the gospel together with Clement and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book of life. Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say rejoice.”

 

Forgive

 

Forgive us, Lord, when we let our emotions and limited understanding become a battleground on which we stand defiant—even with those we cherish and respect.

 

Help each of us to fix our hearts and purpose on You and that which You intend for each of us. Whether on our own specific call, or within a ministry together.

 

Show us how to stay focused on Your words and Your plans.

 

Your thoughts,

Firm: Purpose: Prayers and Poetry

                                                  Firm

 

                                                Stand firm

 

                                                agree in the Lord

 

                                                too often mean

 

                                                different things

 

                                                to different listeners.

 

 

                                                One means

 

                                                be harsh

 

                                                another be merciful

     

                                                as we judge through

 

                                                our own opinions.

 

 

                                                Instead we all

 

                                                are shrouded with

 

                                                darkness, lies,

 

                                                misinformation.

 

 

                                                Instead seek only

 

                                                the Lord’s words.

 

 

                                                In His presence.

 

 

                                                Stand firm.

                                               

Psalm 18:40, “Thou hast also made my enemies turn their backs to me, And I destroyed those who hated me.”
