See: 2 Peter: Prayers and Poetry

                 See

                Destruction

                Like the flood

                A reminder
                a warning
                a healing
                an opportunity to begin
                again fresh.

                To remove our blindness
                in our hearts
                in our souls.

                Like the flood

                To recognize and
                be restored again
                be returned to hope
                be rescued into life.

                Eternal

Psalm 89:48: "What man can live and not see death? Can he deliver his soul from the power of Sheol?" Selah.

Reflection: Floods: 2 Peter: Prayers and Poetry

Reflection Questions

        1. How often do our worries and failures shut our doors of hope?

        2. In what ways does our world ignore God's creations and leans us only in complaint and resentment.

        3. How can we pause and pray for clarity when any kind of flood comes?

Floods: 2 Peter: Prayers and Poetry

 2nd Peter 3:4-6: " They will say, 'So what about this promise of His coming?' Our ancestors are dead and buried, yet everything is still the same as it was since from the beginning of time until now. But they conveniently overlook that from the beginning, the heavens and earth were created by God's word. He spoke and the dry ground separated from the waters. Then long afterward He destroyed the world with a tremendous flood by those very waters."

Floods

We are all too quick to complain and ignore His ongoing gifts and presence that surrounds us throughout nature and history and seasons in our lives.

Instead of thankfulness we demand selfishness as our focus and lean only on our desires. And too often do not even acknowledge His ongoing presence day by day.

Or we only see destruction and loss as evil and forget to see the cost You commit to save lives and souls for eternity. Especially when we cross a line that we cannot return from.

We ask to see the 'floods' in our lives through Your words--Your voice--Your healing--Your restoration--Your mercy.

Lord, please show us how to turn our hearts back to amazement and gratitude and commitment--in all our circumstances.

And walk with You daily. Seeing.

Firm: 2 Peter: Prayers and Poetry

                Firm

                Prophecies stand firm 
                through all time
                no matter how strong
                mockers engage.

                Truth cannot be broken
                even when we walk
                away in confusion
                with doubts.

                Stand on His ground
                given for eternity
                Holy words spoken
                His foundation.

Psalm 89:47: "Remember what my span of life is; For what vanity Thou hast created all the sons of men!"

Mocked: 2 Peter: Prayers and Poetry

2nd Peter 3:1-3: "Beloved friends, this is now the second letter I have written to you in which I've attempted to stir you up and awaken you to a proper mind-set. So never forget both the prophecies spoken by the holy prophets of old and the teaching of our Lord and Savior spoken by your apostles. Above all you must understand that in the last days mockers will multiply, chasing after their evil desires."

Mocked

Thank you, Lord, that You give us Your word and guidance in all circumstances.

Please keep our mind and heart and soul so grounded in You alone and that nothing else can get through. We ask to hear Your words when spoken as Your Spirit guides. And then for Your strength for us to obey--no matter what.

The mockers are strong and have more access to spread their lies throughout so many communications. Sometimes we do think we are hearing clearly so only Your light and truth and foundation can break the deception.

Please continue to show us when darkness is pulling us away from true light whether in difficulties or in joy. We ask to walk with You.

Mercy: 2 Peter: Prayers and Poetry

                Mercy

                To recognize the lose of 
                His gift--relationship--
                broken by selfishness
                overwhelms with grief.

                To recognize our failure.

                Often drown in sorrow
                unless we seek the
                light still burning
                waiting for us to return--seek.

                Ongoing mercy never dies.

Psalm 89:46: "How long, O Lord? Wilt Thou hide Thyself forever? Will Thy wrath burn like fire?"
