Now I will break their yoke from your neck and tear your shackles away. Nahum 1:3

Psalm 144

Praise be to the LORD my ROCK
who trains my hands for war,
my fingers for battle.
He is my loving GOD and my
fortress,
my stronghold and my deliverer,
my SHIELD, in whom I take refuge,
who subdues peoples under me.

O LORD, what is man that you care
for him,
the son of man that you think of him?
Man is like a breath;
his days are like a fleeting shadow.

Part your heavens, O LORD, and COME DOWN;
touch the mountains, so that they smoke.
Send forth lightning and scatter,
the enemies;
SHOOT YOUR ARROWS and rout them.
Reach down your hand from on high;
deliver me and rescue me
from the mighty waters,
from the hands of foreigners
whose mouths are full of lies;
whose right hands are deceitful.

I will sing a NEW SONG to you,
O GOD;
on the ten stringed lyre I will
make music to you,
to the ONE who gives VICTORY to
kings,
who delivers his servant David
from the deadly sword.

Deliver me and rescue me
from the hands of foreigners
whose mouths are full of lies,
whose right hands are deceitful.

Then our sons in their youth
will be like well nurtured plants,
and our daughters will be like pillars
carved to adorn a palace.
Our barns will be filled
with every kind of provision.
Our sheep will increase by
thousands,
by tens of thousands in our fields;
our oxen will draw heavy loads.
There will be no breaching of walls,
no going into captivity,
no cry of distress in our streets.

Blessed are the people of whom this
is true;
blessed are the people whose GOD
is the LORD.

In Jesus’ name we pray.
AMEN.

Sunbeam

Painting by Victoria Frances

 

I caught a sunbeam on it’s way down to the cellar.

It enchanted the air with tranquility

and warmed our hearts with joy.

2010

A sunbeam to warm you,

A moonbeam to charm you,

A sheltering angel

so nothing can harm you.

~Irish Blessing

Tears II

Painting by RK

Gate of repression holds back

The flooding of tears

Light shines through the open crack

Gate of repression holds back

Darkness hidden in the track

Cheeks stained with all of your fears

Gate of repression holds back

The flooding of tears.

II Corinthians 1:3-5. “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; who comforts us in all our tribulation that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. For the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds by Christ.”

 

Rise Up

I’m rising up…I’ve had enough. ~ Adelita’s Way

Rise up, O men [and women], of God!
Have done with lesser things.
Give heart and mind and soul and strength
To serve the King of Kings. ~ William P. Merrill

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. Isaiah 60:1

For it is light that makes everything visible. This is why it is said: “Wake up, O sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” Ephesians 5:14

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast. psalm 139:9-10

Search me, God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting. psalm 139:23-24

For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. In Christ – We will be made alive. Ephesians 2:10

So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? Psalm 139:7

But Peter put them all forth, and kneeled down, and prayed… Acts 9:40

And when he (Paul) had thus spoken, he kneeled down, and prayed with them all. Acts 20:36

Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Isaiah 58:6

“Let us break their chains,” they say, “and throw off their fetters.” Psalm 2:3

I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life. I tell you the truth, if anyone keeps my word, he will never see death. John 8:51

…and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this? John 11:26

Suggested song:

Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you. Psalm 9:10

O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water. Psalm 63:1

The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him,
to the one who seeks him;
it is good to wait quietly
for the salvation of the Lord. Lamentations 3:25-26

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23

All our enemies have opened their mouths
wide against us.
We have suffered terror and pitfalls,
ruin and destruction. Lamentations 3:46-47

Lord, you have heard their insults,
all their plots against me—
what my enemies whisper and mutter
against me all day long.
Look at them! Sitting or standing,
they mock me in their songs.
Pay them back what they deserve, Lord,
for what their hands have done.
Put a veil over their hearts,
and may your curse be on them!
Pursue them in anger and destroy them
from under the heavens of the Lord. Lamentations 3:61-66

Voice of the Raven

Memory breeds in me strange loneliness. ~ William Herbert Carruth

I think I’m dead and a ghost

Of what I was before

Now I am not one to boast

I think I’m dead and a ghost

Travelling up the green coast

Tap-tapping on death’s door

I think I’m dead and a ghost

Of what I was before

(12/2010)

 

I found myself at a loss for words

On that brisk December morn

Something was wrong with my vocal chords

I found myself at a loss for words

They must have been cut with a sharp sword

That soothing voice I will mourn

I found myself at a loss for words

On that brisk December morn

(12-6-2010)

 

~ to be swallowed whole by this monstrosity ~

Butterfly at my window

Look not upon me with sadness

For I am still cocooned

(2010)

tiny crow feathers

lying on a barren path

bring color to dust

(11-30-2010)

so I caught a train to Aberdeen

to see a rock show in the snow

it’s the best show i had ever seen

so I caught a train to Aberdeen

I watched the snow fall through the screen

thinking fondly of E.A. Poe

so I caught a train to Aberdeen

to see a rock show in the snow

(12-2-2010)

a silent heart

hears only the things

it’s life whispers

as it passes through

its clear blue veins

(2010)

i have no face she says

this wicked embrace it ties

my hopes and dreams they lie

in wait for me to claim them

(2010)
