Every Day for Thirty-One Days
Abba’s Heartbeat for Israel

31 Days edit big

Today’s Prompt: Away

His love is enough

I can’t run away
from You,
From Your unrelenting, persevering love
Your love chases me down
When I’m not sure if anyone’s there
or if anyone cares,
Your love wraps all around me
You bring me to my knees
My heart feels Your mercy
The tears begin to fall
No matter the pain, or darkness,
No matter the anguish I’ve known
Your love reaches me
Your love chases me down

You have a son, Father
Your son is Israel
He cannot, will not get away from Your love
Abba, Father
If Your love is enough for me
Your love is enough
Your love is more than enough for Your beloved Son
Your beautiful one
Abba, may Your lovingkindness that chases me down
Bring Your people near once again
May Your tender mercy fall upon their hearts
May Your beautiful love draw them in
Abba, Your love is enough
For all of Israel’s pain and suffering

Israel, He sees, He knows, He comprehends all your ways
Let Him in again
He will heal Your broken heart
He will comfort your shaken soul
He is enough
And His desire is for you, O Israel
Abba longs that you come home

the labor of His soul

Praying with G-d for the brokenhearted ones
Laboring with the holy One on behalf of the afflicted
Toiling that one may find life eternal, and now

The labor of love
A life given, not taken
The labor of His soul shall be satisfied
The people of His heart
and the people of His blood
Not forgotten,
Not forsaken

The people He came from
Unaware of all He did, and all He said
but mostly unaware of His great love for them
Rejected, left alone, not cared for

O Abba,
May the heart cries of Your firstborn throughout the ages come up
to Your ears and bring hope and life eternal back down to their hearts

O Abba,
May the labor of His soul be satisfied

O Abba,
May Your heart’s desire for the people of Israel be made known

The labor of love
The desire of Your heart
to say to all who are thirsty, “Come!”
That the living water of life be poured out
May the light be shed abroad in the heart of Israel today

For Zion’s sake I will not be silent
For Jerusalem’s sake I will not hold My peace
Until her righteousness goes forth as brightness
and her salvation as a lamp that burns 1

Zion, Jerusalem, Israel
Come home
Draw Near
He waits for You

1 Isaiah 62:1

Today’s Prompt: Rest

G-d’s Choice – a Prayer

Today I rest, today I wait
patiently, or not so patiently
for You to have Your way in me
You are the beautiful God
with the beautiful heart
and I have nothing to bring that will add anything to the breathtaking reality
that You chose me
You chose me just because You wanted to
I had nothing to bring to this relationship yet You chose me anyway,
For this I am grateful

My life is poured out onto You
My life work is to learn to rest and wait
before You,
to rest in life now that is teeming with forever,
to hope in love pregnant with eternity

May my life breath
whisper, speak, shout
of who You are
Faithful G-d
Magnificent Father
May my heart be bound to You
My life be wrapped up in Your story
My essence be filled with Your breath, Your Spirit

As I wait, watch, hope and pray
May I see Israel’s forever bound with me
May I know we are linked together
May I live with hope awaiting
Your wonderful love
poured out
Transforming hearts, lives, eternities now and all of my days
For You chose Israel like You chose me
Just because You wanted to, You chose Israel
Would You finish this work You started, in Israel
and in me

I am joining with Lisa Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday. The goal is to write for five minutes about a word. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

Today’s prompt is:

Belong

Feeling a part of someone else’s heart
Feeling a part of family
Feeling a part of something called home

Will I ever really belong?
Why does this place feel so foreign?
Why does my heart feel so far away?

I belong to a family and it is the family I’ve always waited for,
the family of G-d, the family that is part of a world to come.

I await patiently, or sometimes not so patiently, the restoration within,
the restoration without.

Will restoration mean I belong? Will restoration mean I’m finally home, safe, accepted, beloved?

As my heart ponders these concepts, I know the reality is tough and real and somewhere in between this world and the next.

Will the relationships, the “family,” the place and people to which I pour out my soul ever be where I truly belong?

I’d like to emphatically say, “yes,” yet I’ve come to realize this world is not my home.

The friends, family, places, people to which I give the most may very well give me nothing in return, and I wonder, how do I find where I belong? And how does my soul stay alive in the midst?

Then I hear a whisper, and I know I belong. There is one place I belong, and it’s deeply within the heart of my G-d, my Maker, my Creator, my Abba.

Finally I’ve found where I belong. My heart overflows just to know this place where shalom reigns. No matter what goes on all around, no matter what kind of persecution or hatred comes against me or against Israel, Your shalom still reigns.
