Very Few

There are very few
who see the morning dew.
They are snuggled in bed
resting their head.
So they are unaware
and some don’t even care
what the early morning brings.
There are many wondrous things.
The early morning sky
is catching to the eye.
Whether it’s cloudy or clear
there isn’t any fear.
The day looks totally grand
no matter from where you stand.

Everywhere

You are not just there
You are not just here
You are everywhere

You are aware
Because You care
You hear our prayer

God does follow through
In all He said He would do
You need to know this is true

If you pay attention
And have good retention
You’ll see a new dimension

What is your reflection
On God’s direction
Do you need correction

In You I believe
Yes, Lord I receive
You empower me to achieve

Mountain Top Experience #1 Exodus 3

Exodus 3
~~~
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Exodus+3&version=NKJV;NIV
~~~
This theme, Mountain Top Experience comes from the Book of Exodus chapters 3, 19 and 24.  There are 4 parts to this theme.
~~~
Part #1
Moses went up the mountain and met with God, not once, nor twice, not even three times, but more than four times. The first time God revealed Himself in a burning bush on His holy mountain. Moses, intrigued by the bush that was inflamed but not burning, went up the sacred mountain and met God there. This was Moses first of several mountain top experiences with God.
~~~
   It was not Moses ideas to meet with God; it was God’s plan. God created the situation and Moses responded. Moses was doing what he did every day when He saw the bush burning. It was his job to shepherd the flock of sheep.
~~~
Moses did not know God. Moses knew of God, but really didn’t know Him personally. The reason God called Moses to this mountain top experience was to impart into Moses the purpose for his life; to tell Moses why he was born. The reason Moses was born was for one purpose alone. God had ordained him from birth to be Israel’s deliver. Moses was to deliver Israel, God’s chosen people, from Egyptian bondage and slavery.
~~~
This first mountain top experience was where God spoke and said, “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.”  When in the presence of God, His holiness……..well, it cannot even be explained in mere human words. So God revealed His holiness to Moses and how Moses was to respond to God’s holiness. There is a certain way we are to act when in the presence of God. God is not common, so we shouldn’t treat Him or His Name as such. God is holy. God needed to teach Moses this first, because Moses was going to be Israel’s spiritual leader as well as their physical leader.
~~~ 
We need to have the right posture when in the presence of The Almighty; God. We need to be aware of who He is and who we are. He, God Almighty, is the Creator and we are His creation.
~~~
God not only gave Moses instructions on how to deliver Israel from Egyptian bondage, but the Lord equipped him as well. God will not call someone to do something and then not give them the means to do it. God gave Moses explicit instructions on what to do and what to say. So Moses first mountain top experience was for God to tell Moses the purpose for his life.

 

Morning Light

Thank you Lord for the morning light,
which was burning radiant bright.
The coolness of the morning air
surrounded everything out there.
Yet in the early morning sun
the day’s warmth had not begun.
But as the day progressed
the coolness digressed
giving way to the sun’s rays,
which created a bit of haze.
But not for long
for the sun was strong.
The air became dry and hot
the moisture in the air was not,
leaving the most delightful day,
which brings joy along one’s way.

Type of Season

God does not owe us,
so why do we fuss?
It is by His grace
that we’re in this place.
If there is pressure,
then it is for sure
that there is a good reason
for this type of season.
~~~
If we endure
God will ensure
a good outcome,
so don’t be dumb
trust in the Lord God.
When He uses His rod
it is for our own good,
and by it we should
turn from our harmful ways
giving Him honor and praise.
Then we would walk upright
and be pleasing in His sight.
We must never forget
there need not be regret.
God remembers our sin no more;
He does not keep score.
He always does forgive
freeing us to live
with Him in peace.
If only to Him we release
what bothers our mind
in Him we will find
a wonderful solace,
which would be bliss.

Do You

Do you go before your God
to give Him honor and laud?
Or do you only go to Him
when your life is bleak and dim?
Do you only seek His hand,
or do you adhere to His command?
Of Him, what is your contemplation?
Are you seeking a true relation?
If we could only see
the truth about God Almighty
we would be totally indebted
and regret all we’ve fretted;
our thoughts, ways, and stuff
complaining we don’t have enough,
and wanting so much more
even though we have galore.
We all have a plateful,
so we should be grateful.
