LISTED BELOW ARE PRECIOUS PROMISES FROM GOD BY SUBJECT MATTER

 
HUMBLE - - Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor. James 4:10

JOY - - For you will not leave my soul among the dead or allow your holy one to rot in the grave. You will show me the way of life granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever. Psalm 16: 10-11

GRACE - - For the Lord God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right. Psalm 84:11 But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, 5 that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!) 6 For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus. 7 So God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of his grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all he has done for us who are united with Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:5-8

ABIDE - - Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends. 21 Those who are victorious will sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat with my Father on his throne. Revelations 3:20 ASK FOR WISDOM - - But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! 8 When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father. John 15:7-8

GUIDANCE - - He will protect his faithful ones, but the wicked will disappear in darkness. No one will succeed by strength alone. Those who fight against the Lord will be shattered. 1 Samuel 2:9

AGAINST FEAR - - This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

 JESUS HELP ME FOR I WANT TO LIVE A HOLY DEVOUT CHRISTIAN LIFE.


 LIVING WITH GOD WHILE IN THE WORLD !

There is a silence that surrounds me,
  It forms an invisible cocoon of peace,
Life swirls around me ever changing
  Seeking an input from my energies.

This cocoon is formed grace from God
  Unearned yet found in a God lover
With gifts to complete ministries
  That form the power for bold actions.

In this silence is a known direction,
  A knowing of a way that is right,
Without nary a word spoken or written
  The Christian mystic knows his place.

The degree that the world swirls about
  The person living in Christ's presence,
Is of God's choosing for He has needs
  For the cloistered and front line warriors.

I am not cloistered so I can not speak
  But no doubt Satan and flesh haunt them.
For I am a Jesus front line mystic warrior
  Out in the joyful grinds of daily living.

A mystic without a building or order
  To protect from outside sinful world,
Clinging tightly to an invisible Friend
  As the world whirls in great disarray.

I must admit that I often have fears
  That this wonderful invisible cocoon
Will be pulled from me by my God
  And I will have to face the world naked.

You say how could this happen to you?
  Easily, let spiritual pride puff me up or
When my meek submission to God
  Goes astray claiming God’s work is mine.

Humility and meekness yet with
  The boldness when God so wills it,
These are the markers of a mystic
  Along with doing God’s work timely.

This road to become God’s warrior
  Is not obtained in a hour, a year
But painfully learned in the life’s fire
  Until sensitive to God’s call to serve.

Oh my Master, my Old Friend, thank you
  For my invisible cocoon of silence
And the spiritual gifts and insightful
  Direction for this, Jesus front line warrior.

After writing this, I wondered why it was penned. For I know all that is said here and it is my pattern for life, so it must be written for some other reason. For such a poem draws attention to the writer which could lead to the danger of spiritual pride for me.  So even knowing this, it was penned. I have learned that when we do God’s work, we must not expect to know the whys! It does not stop me from wondering, was it written for you? Did you gain from it’s insight?
