The picture is from an old quarry we walked the other day. While walking this verse from Joel was in my mind.
As God has restored this area back to its natural beauty, despite mankind stripping it from its minerals. It reminds me of how God is constantly restoring us. He takes the lost years and restores whatever we need when we need it.
Your power Lord Jesus we limit Where really you are limitless For doing good Putting right The constant mess we make
Your power Jesus Though The cross Makes us not only forgiven But renewed, restored, revived In all aspects of our lives
So in your power Jesus Please restore us today Whatever the need Emotional or physical Lord we need you to transform us
A Sunday morning poetry reflection inspired by 1 Kings 19:11 – 13
And he said, “Go out and stand on the mount before the Lord.” And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind tore the mountains and broke in pieces the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. And after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. And after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire the sound of a low whisper. And when Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his cloak and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave. And behold, there came a voice to him and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”
1 Kings 19:11-13 ESV
A gentle whisper That is how you came Not in the powerful wind Earthquake or fire But gently whispering
A whisper so peaceful A presence so identifiable No doubt That it is only God touching earth
Your power, your strength So strong, yet so gentle There is no way to ignore Your presence as a whisper Passing by
Your whisper Your strength and power Now lives in us Through your Holy Spirit Still powerful and true
A power not to be taken frivously Taking God for granted His spirit Living in us Whispering tremendous power
Power that rose Jesus From death to life For us to live Not in the grave But joyous in victory
No situation to big or small God whispers Let me do this And break the chain So you can walk with me freely
