Kinsman Redeemer


How could it be, Kinsman Redeemer?
You left Heaven’s splendor,
pierced through the cold darkness
of this world, and came as
a babe on that night so long ago. 
You are the Eternal God who spoke
the world into being!
How could it be most precious

 Passover Lamb of God,
slain before the foundation
 of the world?

Your body and blood were enough
to forgive our sins
 and reconcile us to fellowship with God!

How could it be Lord Jesus?
Death and hell could not hold the
only begotten Son of God.
You rose from the dead and ascended
back to the father, where you 
now live to make
 intercession for your children!   

And in my heart, Truth whispers,
My child, I love you and it was for you I died.
Love’s full redemption price was paid in full
through the mercy and grace of Jesus Christ,
our loving Kinsman Redeemer! 

Spread the corner of your garment over your handmaid, for you are a redeeming kinsman. Ruth 3:9

For God so loved the world, He gave His only begotten son, so that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Embrace the Season

We don’t have to leave our home
these  days for the world’s bad
news to come  crashing down
upon us. Too much information
crowds our souls as we search

the internet, scan the news or browse Facebook.

Sometimes we just need to stop, pull back, and take a break from the world.
The best way I know of getting away from it all is to get up early and watch
a new day dawn, especially at springtime.
 Signs of new growth abound and
soon I’m down on my knees digging in the soil, pulling weeds, 
old plants, adding new ones.

In the same way, Spring can ring eternal in our hearts when we take time to
walk through the Word of God and embrace the promises found there. Eternal
truths never lose their power to renew and refresh our minds. Give comfort
when we grieve a loss; and cause new hope to arise in our hearts during times
of stormy trials and winds of adversity.

There’s a hope rooted
down deep . . .
Deep in the soil of God’s love.
Winds of adversity
test it . . .
Stormy trials try

to possess it.
But hope is
rooted down deep
in the soil of
God’s love.  

There’s a hope springing up
with shoots of

new growth.
Nothing can stop it…
Evil can’t thwart it.
Hope always
thrusts through

hardened soil,
softened by Spring’s rain.
Eternal hope . . .

Everlasting love.

Anchor of my soul,
birthed and
born again. (John 3:3-17)

Eternal Seed implanted . . .
catch the wind of the Spirit.
New life . . .
spring forth.

Awaken winter’s dead.
Heavenly showers fall—
rain flowers
upon my soul.

This hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out
within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. Romans 5:5

Dove of His Presence


Dove of His presence, You have graced and embraced me… Poured the balm of Gilead on open wounds… Taken the sweetness of the  cross of Jesus… and dipped me  in living waters of sweet contentment and joy.  No circumstance… no matter how hard or … Continue reading
