Devotion Led in May

Image
I think this month, I will be helping myself out and if it helps anyone else - wonderful.  I will be happy that God used me.  But it is going to be fairly selfishness on my part.  I am listening to some meditative prayers and devotions and have decided to use them as a starting point for some poetry.  Some will rhyme, others will not; some may be Haiku (short and sweet), some may be long.  If this is not your cup of tea this month, please hang in there!  I will be writing more in June.  I have lots of things to work through in my present season, and I need to remember that my troubles will not last.  I need to see my troubles in a different way.  My lens of hope has clouded and I need to get myself right and see with the right perspective.  Thank you for indulging me.  Thank you for reading, if you have stuck around.  If you are tiptoeing out, please peek around the corner to check on me again later!                                                                     (random image gen

The random image and fake word generator also generates random Bible verses.  Here's what it gave me today:   Psalm 114:8    Which turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.  Psalm 114:8 Christ our Rock, Our fountain of Grace, Behold what God does He abides in this place.  Donna JT Smith 5/2022   from the old Psalter: Psalm 114:8 . That turnes the stane in stank of waters, And roche in wels of waters.   (https://libraryblogs.is.ed.ac.uk)
