No Limits: Grace in the Wilderness: Prayers and Poetry




                                                No Limits

                                               
                                                No limits

                                                to God’s mercy

                                                love infinite

                                                immeasurable

                                                expands like
                       
                                                the universe

                                                beyond grasp

                                                never ending

                                                depths

                                                of possibility.


Romans 8:37, “But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.”

If: Grace in the Wilderness: Prayers and Poetry


Jeremiah 31: 37 “Thus says the Lord, ‘If the heavens above can be measured, And the foundations of the earth searched out below, Then I will also cast off all the offspring of Israel, For all that they have done,” declares the Lord.”

If,

If the measure of heaven be exhausted, would we be cast off too?

“The immense suggests the infinity,” says Alexander MacLaren. “The immensity of the material universe is for us a symbol of the infinity of God’s long-suffering love.”

A century ago the thought of measuring the universe was beyond comprehension. Today scientists have found more and more astonishing discoveries, and yet, the more they find, the more infinite the search becomes.

“His forgiving forbearance reaches further than the limits of the heavens.”

There are no limits to God’s love and His mercy. Despite whatever we have done.

Thank you Lord for Your unfailing grace that redeems us from all situations, and
restores life and hope into each breath. Thank you for Your immense ongoing love. May we learn to love each other with Your compassion and grace.

Cease: Grace in the Wilderness: Prayers and Poetry



                                               Cease


                                                Fixed order

                                                centered in purpose

                                                foundation built on

                                                costly grace

                                                future must hold on

                                                continuously or

                                                forfeit new possibilities

                                                cause a broken covenant

                                                forever scattered like

                                                chaff in the wind

                                                fractured order.

Romans 8:36, “Just as it is written, ‘For Thy sake we are being put to death all day long; we were considered as sheep to be slaughtered.’”

Fixed Order: Grace in the Wilderness: Prayers and Poetry


Jeremiah 31: 36 “‘If this fixed order departs from before Me,’ declares the Lord, ‘Then the offspring of Israel also shall cease From being a nation before me forever.’”

Fixed order,

Now scattered.

How easily we each fail to keep to the Lord’s grace for us—His plans, His order, His promises.

Then we wonder why we are often lost and crumble and wander away. And feel as if any promised possibility is lost forever.

Yet, the Lord will continue to walk with us side-by-side waiting for us to recognize and accept His way. When we turn to His fixed love that is offered in a relationship that He still gives to us one-to-one.

Especially when our paths have been shattered and broken, either by ourselves or by others, He will still show us how to move forward. In His ongoing truth and purpose which cannot be broken.

He will take all our broken pieces and shape them by His own hand in a new creation. His fixed order of personal relationship.

Lord, we have no life—no being—no breath apart from You—Your creation—Your Presence. Help us each to understand and embrace life in Your shaping hands and purpose.

Your thoughts,

Only One: Grace in the Wilderness: Prayers and Poetry




                                                Only One


                                                His name

                                                only one to speak

                                                creation into being

                                                lit the heavens

                                                by day and night

                                                engulfing darkness

                                                designing oceans

                                                fixed order

                                                ongoing life

                                                established by

                                                His hand
                                   
                                                only power

                                                to save all

                                                creation into wholeness

                                                Light of life

                                                Holy love.

Romans 39:35, “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?”
