Together: Grace in the Wilderness: Prayers and Poetry


Jeremiah 31: 24, “And Judah and all its cities will dwell together in it, the farmer and they who go about with flocks.

Together,

Barrier removed—walls broken down—for rich and poor, young and old, families and strangers.

It is difficult enough sometimes for loving families to dwell together and here even strangers will be brought into a united restoration through Jesus’ grace.

Fractures can be mended together through God’s promises. Any separation with relationships near or distant can be restored to peace within our hearts. His power and His forgiveness open the doors for us to follow. When we learn to dwell in His word and truth we learn to live together in His family—no matter how diverse or dysfunctional we are.

No matter the brokenness that has occurred this word opens hope for a future that brings growth instead of decay, hope for release, hope for a new beginning, hope for walking in His Spirit and in fellowship.

Lord, please keep us dwelling in You within our diversity instead of allowing rejection and misunderstandings to break relationships. Show us how to be Your servants towards each other through prayers and humility.

Once Again: Grace in the Wilderness: Prayers and Poetry



                                               Once Again

                                               
                                                Once again

                                                speak this word

                                                from the beginning

                                                until the end

                                                through drought

                                                and plenty
                                               
                                                subjection or restoration

                                                silent or with power

                                                speak His

                                                truth.


                                                Blessing

                                                that is not bound

                                                by space or time.


                                                Speak His word

                                                once again.

Romans 8:23, “And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body.”

Restore: Grace in the Wilderness: Prayers and Poetry


Jeremiah 31: 23, “Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, ‘Once again they will speak this word in the land of Judah and in its cities, when I restore their fortunes, The Lord bless you, O abode of righteousness, O holy hill!’”

Once again,

“They will speak this word.”

“When I restore.”

How often do we let go of His words and forget, or resist, speaking them to ourselves and to others. Fears—apathy—exhaustion—selfishness—pain—are only a few of the reasons we fail to remember the promises and their power.

Too often we only perceive or define restoration that we can see as tangible and measurable in work, and home, and finances. Yet the Lord’s restoration commits to hearts, souls, truth, and life.

His words stand timeless.

He will restore us to His plans and purpose and focus and message. He will enable us to remember and hold on—to His words, not our limited fragile attempted copies.

Lord, please give us courage to be faithful to Your grace in all our circumstances. And when we falter, may Your Spirit speak into us and carry us through any despair.

New Thing: Grace in the Wilderness: Prayers and Poetry



                                               New Thing

A new thing

                                                beyond our understanding or

                                                comprehension so we allow

                                                doubts to scatter us

                                                create indecision

                                                barriers as excuses

                                                doubts to grow, yet still

                                                a new light

                                                brings amazing news

                                                choice given to follow so

                                                doubts can dissolve

                                                chose His promise

                                                believe with faith

                                                a promise guaranteed.

           
Romans 8:22, “For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.”
