With Him

One day I started this walk

With Him,

As His love woos me to Him!

So I believed then prayed!

At first the trail was smooth

there was only a little dust aroused

as I scampered along

With Him.

As I believed then prayed!

Soon the heat beat down

so His Shadow became my  shade

He refreshed me with

His living water

so I pressed on

With Him.

As I believed then prayed!

Down down into a vast deep valley

darkness, depression, and fear

was trying to hide what lie ahead

He became my Light.

As I trodden on

With Him.

As I believed then prayed!

Coldness of bitterness tried to steal away

warmth of my life

His love became the fire

that melted away the icy night

as I toiled on

With Him.

As I believed then prayed!

The road soon turned upward

the gentle incline grew steep

 growling hunger pains came from within

He became my bread of life

a nourishing power of Him,

I climbed higher

With Him.

As I believed then prayed!

A narrow mountain trail grew vertical

jagged sharp-edged rocks

razor cuts deep to my bones

a nailed scared touch of His Hand

was all healing of the wounds

I ascended upward,

With Him.

As I believed then prayed!

A missed placed step

a slip, a stumble, a fall

catapulted for sure to succumb on boulders below

His mercy. His grace,

Rescued as I was captured

back into enduring arms,

With Him.

I believed then prayed!

Thieves, robbers, set traps and snares

meaning to entangle

lions and serpents seeking to devour.

He the gentle Shepherd

guided, guarded as I grazed Living Words

drank from the Fruit of the Living Vine

In Him.

 I believed and prayed!

As many a valley I have crossed,

countless mountains have been climbed,

rivers to numerous to count forged,

trials, temptations pitfalls surpassed,

evil’s forces confronted,

sins confessed, weakness turned to strength

for His Glory.

For He is my Fortress, my Rock

my Shepherd, my Light, my Strength,

my Lord, my Messiah, my Love,

my life is

With Him.

 one thing I have learned

is to believe and pray.

These last few miles He now carries me

forward on life’s narrow path,

clutched tightly against His chest

to His Abba Father’s Home

where I shall live at rest forever

With Him,

Yeshua Messiah.

As I believed and prayed!

Amen.

  3. James,
    This is a beautiful, loving walk you’ve been having with Jesus. We must all remember to believe then pray.
    Betsy

  4. Thank you for this one. Love it. Love your writing style.

  5. Very, very beautiful. I can recognize my own life in your words. Thanks.
    God bless!

    • tachr, I have been in the Psalms reading David’s words. Many of his Psalms I could see myself and God working in them. I was hoping the words God gave would do the same. Where I just disappear and all that is seen is God and the reader. Thank-you and many Blessing to you, Amen.

  6. That was lovely, James! Sorry I haven’t been around much…..

  7. jisunjackson on said:

    Absolutely beautiful.

  8. love this…. sounds like my life. love it.

    • A writer I admire very much once said when one is writing the author needs to disappear and the reader becomes apart of the words left behind on the page. All praise goes to our Yeshua Messiah the author of our lives, Amen.
      You again have brought blessings to Men of One Accord, I pray for many blessing upon all your ways, Amen.

  9. Hi James, just stopped in to say thank you for all the numerous likes on my posts and again you have wowed me with the gift God has blessed you with!! I have posted this on my Facebook. Well done and thank you for your obedience and love to and for Him! Keep writing!! Lori

  10. Hi James, I thought I would take a look at some of your older posts. This one describes Christian life as it really is: difficult, dangerous, yet renewed daily with joy from God’s throne. Thanks for all the likes on my blog.
