Ancient of Days

On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty , let him come to me and drink.  Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.”

John 7:37-38

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ancient of Days

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nature

is evidence of Divine Heart

leaving fingerprints on earth

and quenching my thirst

like no other art

The Cross

is Mercy’s Arms outstretched in love

healing, helping, holding

and bringing hope that flows

from Heaven’s throne above

His grace

is Emmanuel’s selflessness displayed

in providing the only way

from sin-stained to saved

through Ancient of Days!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Where, in nature, have you seen evidence of a Designer?  Water in the form of creeks, rivers, and lakes always causes me to ponder the Author of creation.  On this particular day, that my son and I hiked into see this waterfall ( the first time for both of us), it was especially inspiring.  I literally broke out into an old song that begins with, “You are awesome in this place, mighty God.  You are awesome in this place, Abba Father…”

It wasn’t just about the loud roar of the waterfall or the relief of having safely traversed a very steep hike down a ravine (using ropes kindly attached to trees by previous people), or even that we’d walked past enormous old growth cedars.  It was about my son. My firstborn son.

I love him – a lot!  He’s been through a deep valley recently, and my heart rejoices to see him climbing out of it.  Now, if I , as an imperfect mother, can love my son so deeply… how much more so does God love us?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Creator God,

Thank you for your awesome creation that displays some of your power and glory.  Abba Father, I want to thank you also for loving our children even more than my husband and I do.  Continue your good work in them and us, and enable me to keep praying faithfully for your perfect will to be done in these young lives. And mighty God, may your will be done in my life too!

In your Son’s name,

Amen

Ancient of Days’ Blessings ~ Wendy

  1. I love this new bog, though I believe it serves the same purpose as greenlightlady, all the same it enriches the soul of the reader, I will be a constant visitor!
    Love always. 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • Thank you, Seyi, for your encouragement! Yes, the difference is subtle as I post more pictures and poems, per post, on the other one. I’ve been craving to do more inspirational writing alongside Scripture and poems – so here is a new spot for it ( I’ll try to keep it under 500 words) . Thank you for joining in!

    • I really am looking forward to sharing what is placed on my heart to encourage others. Devotional books have always blessed me – as does your devotional blog. I like the “Daily Bread” type format with a bit of this and that as parsley beside the meat of the Word. Thank you for the follow, Debbie!

  2. What an incredible God … that we could continue to long for His heart and that He would fill us continually with His everlasting kindness and love!!

    • Heidi, you’ve said it well! I am regularly overwhelmed by “His everlasting kindness and love!!” Thank you for your visit here!

  3. Wendy, I am so glad you found my blog because that meant I could find yours! And I used to write poetry so we have a few things in common… Besides poetry… And loving Christ… And writing… And praying and loving our children so deeply that we write about them… I’m guessing there is more. 😉

    God bless you lady!
