Summer breeze

He sends his word and melts them; he stirs up his breezes, and the waters flow.” /Psalms 147:18

”My beloved spoke and said to me, “Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, come with me.

See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land.

The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance.

Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me.”
/Song of Songs 2:10-13

”You heavens above, rain down my righteousness;
    let the clouds shower it down.
Let the earth open wide,
    let salvation spring up,
let righteousness flourish with it;
    I, the Lord, have created it.”
/Isaiah 45:8

”Your love is like a warm breeze.
The warmth of your breath is melting my fear away.

Your sun, your love, gently unfolds my so tightly wrapped up defense.
Like heavy chains falling off, one by one.

Now I’m free. Bursting into summer. Blossoming.

THE POWER OF GRACE

”But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”
/2 Korinth 12:9

When I fall,
I fall into your everlasting arms
You uphold me

I don’t have to have it all toghether
You hold me toghether


I don’t have to be strong
You are strong

I can shake off those heavy burdens
No need of them on my shoulders

Lighter, I can see clearly;

You carry me
So I can be carefree, in the care of God.

You remind me:
”Do not be afraid, I will never leave you. I will never forsake you.

My thoughts and plans for you are only good, I have a future and a hope for you.”

I trust you. You are my saviour, healer, shepherd and friend.

”The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad, the desert shall rejoice and blossom;like the crocus it shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice with joy and singing.””For waters shall break forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert;the burning sand shall become a pool, and the thirsty ground springs of water;”Isaiah 35:1, 6

FREEDOM

”I waited patiently for the Lord;
he turned to me and heard my cry.

He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.

He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear the Lord
and put their trust in him.”

Psalms 40

FLOURISH


”You are not made to fit in,
You are not made to blend in.

You are made to be you,
to the fullest,
no excuses!

Just as you are.
Be you, be free.”

Psalms 139:
”For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.

My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.

Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
How precious to me are your thoughts, God!”

Deep calls to deep

 

”Day in and day out

You lead me,
you breathe
you sustain me

Day in and day out

You love me
you hear me,
you see me

Day in, day out
You are the One who uphold me”

 

”For there is not a word on my tongue, But behold, O Lord, You know it altogether.

You have hedged me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me.

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is high, I cannot attain it.”

Psalms 139: 4-6
