Assurance On A Summer’s Day

Wisdom Speaks at Summer’s Berthing

Whether the sky’s face is grey and its tear drops fall daily on the earth as though in remorse,

Summer is on her berth and is here to stay her course.

It’s a season we judge not by her countenance whether bleak or gay.

Her worth is vast and more precious than meets the eye so mortal man is not fast to judge.

Listen to Wisdom speak.

Wisdom proclaims her breaking forth is as the dawning of a new day;

An era to arise and shine as the sun does beam it’s rays on a Summer’s day.

A time to wear a smile of contentment and be clad in the cloak of gladness sown in Spring from a tapestry of God’s victories in the Autumn of oppression and the Winter of discord.

Wisdom speaks of her as the season to reflect on God’s truths so as to deflect from falsehood, discard the unproductive and disregard the immotive.

By her, productive and active shall you be. Able to invest and harvest not in haste, but in God’s heartfelt rest.

Listen to Wisdom speak: “For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest.”(1)

His speech of renewal at Summer’s berthing until she departs, is what Wisdom hears from Father in every season and sees Him doing for whatever reason.

“Wisdom is the Principle Thing” (2)

Listen to Wisdom Speak.

My Restorer, Giver of Fortitude

My Restorer, giver of fortitude, to you I sing this song of gratitude.

As an object I was discarded, still I aligned with them though dejected.

Then you came along and composed for me a new song.

Love-filled lyrics sweet to my ears awakened my soul, ’til then among the lifeless throng.

My Restorer, giver of fortitude, to you I sing this song of gratitude.

You unlocked the truth of my worth and sang oracles to reveal the miracle of my birth.

With thanksgiving I eat of your goodness and drink from your water-hose of joy.

With gladness I enter your gates of renewal, far away from the dungeons of those that destroy.

My Restorer, giver of fortitude, to you I sing this song of gratitude.

Speak to me, Yah!

Speak to me Yah!

Your words that are refreshing,

transforming my heart into a well

watered garden.

Speak to me Yah!

Your words that are precious,

more precious than gold and

able to render the greatest honour.

Speak to me Yah!

Your words that are sweet,

sweeter than the honeycomb

giving a flavour of life like no other.

Jesus, the Passover Lamb

At the Passover table

for the sake of his

remembrance,

Jesus commanded

his disciples saying

eat the bread;

“…my body which is

broken for you”,

drink the wine;

“…the new

testament in my blood:”

At the Passover table,

I, his disciple obey his

command:

my eating of the bread, his body

is the crushing of my enemy,

my drinking of the wine, his blood

is the draining away of my sin.

In Jesus, the Passover Lamb,

I pass over from death to life

for the curse is broken,

and death is forsaken.

At the Passover table,

eating,

I no more hunger

for worldliness.

Drinking,

I no more thirst

for sinfulness.

For in the Pass Over,

I have resurrection life.

“25Jesus said… “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will still live, even if he dies. 26Whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?” (John 11:25 WEB)
