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

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

Abba’s Heartbeat for Israel

Today’s Prompt: Care

aching with G-d

The life of an intercessor
Joining with Your heart
Joining with Your prayers

Waiting, watching, hoping, praying
Absolutely lost, finished,
if You do not answer

A life of desperation
and a life of aching with Him
Acutely caring for the things on His heart
The place of the heart being yoked with the only One
Who can take the burden and share His holy longing

Where are the wailing women today?
Where are those whose lives are marked by weeping and tears,
for the sake of the children, for the sake of Your people?

For the hurt of the daughter of my people I am hurt 1
It is the sound of Rachel weeping for her children
because they are no more 2

Abba, awaken our hearts to see and know,
To love and care,
To carry and be carried by You in the deep unto deep of Your heart
and Your burden

Let me be so close to You,
Hidden in Your heart

Share Your heart with me
I want to bridge the gap

Wail, cry, mourn, rejoice,
Agree with You
Bring redemption nigh, Abba
For Israel, Your Son
And for the sake of the whole earth
That You may be satisfied

2 Jeremiah 31:15

Abba’s Heartbeat for Israel

Today’s Prompt: New

Awakened Heart

I continued my journey. It was exhilarating yet heartbreaking at times. Yet I could not go back. I had entered into a deep precious place with my Father. He had invited me in to a new place I hadn’t known before. In the midst of a most difficult season in life, He invited me in to something precious to His heart.

Israel – a people, a son, a child, one He still longed for

Step by step, day by day,
My heart began to open, and see words and stories and ideas,
And a thread woven in and out and through the pages
Of the divine story
I had read many times before,
Yet never seeing what I began to see
As this new day unfolded before me
And my heart fell in love once again

I had run into the heart of my good, good Father
Through a story I hadn’t quite seen before,
I hadn’t understood like I began to understand

My heart began to be moved
By an ancient people
With a rich heritage
And a hope still to come

a tiny flame from an aching heart

I am joining with Kate Motaung 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:

because

I write
because
I pray
because
I breathe
because
I am

nothing of my own to give
except my heart,
no offering that looks extravagant
just my “yes”
no sacrifice or else I would bring it
just day to day following my Father’s way
nothing drawing attention
of the world
or the peoples
just a tiny flame
from an aching heart
that I willingly offer
to the G-d of my life

this is my offering today
this is my gift of love to You

Israel’s Battle

Abba, there is battle raging
The battle is clearly not against flesh and blood
The battle for Israel
is the battle of the ages
The battle for Israel
is the battle that will end all other battles

Today awakens the dawn to nearly three weeks
of what we call war in Israel
Many soldiers fallen
Many civilians caught in the dark crossfire of Hamas’ leadership
that tells them their death is their glory

Yet, how many women with small children, how many grandfathers
Really believe it is glorious to die before your time
How many captive men, women and children does Hamas have today
God, may You set captive ones free tonight from the death grip of Hamas and Islam

And then there is Israel
There is always beloved Israel
Trying to stand and fight
Untold enemies all around
If it isn’t rockets and bombs
It’s words and handcuffs by political leaders
the world ’round

Anti-Zionism is the new Anti-Semitism
So they say
What they say seems to be true
In fact, it looks like Paris was burning again, just last week
Why? Israel hatred, or Jew hatred, it’s all the same

Israel didn’t ask for this
But she can’t stand and watch the rockets fly, the child kidnappers get away

Israel, O Israel
May you look to the One who is higher
May you see and know more clearly than yesterday
He is Your help, the One who made heaven and earth
He is Your keeper,
He neither slumbers nor sleeps

The G-d of Israel
Fights for You, O Israel
Trust in Him
Fall on Him

He is your Father
He is the G-d of your life

A Prayer for Israel Today

This is the day the Lord has made
Let us rejoice and be glad in it
The above phrase washes over my soul as the Shabbat ends in Israel
Along with the end of Shabbat, is the beginning of rocket fire once again
Because the enemies didn’t agree to allow
More time for the humanitarian aid of their people

Abba, help Your people Israel,
Abba, help the Arab people,
Bring life and hope
Bring deliverance within and without

The enemy surrounding vows Israel’s annihilation
No peace, no life, no desire for the Jewish people to live
When the enemy worships death
There is no possibility for shalom

Mighty G-d of Israel, please fight for Israel
Mighty G-d of Israel, please fight against those who fight against You
Mighty G-d of Israel, have compassion on the people of Israel
Mighty G-d of Israel, rescue lives today

Deliver children today from death and destruction
Deliver children from fear with Your perfect love
May Your Name go forth today
May Your heart be made known to children all throughout Israel,
to Jewish children, to Arab children, to other children,
Make Yourself known
Abba, raise up a generation among the least and make them beloved
and great in Your sight
May these young ones love Your name and love Your Kingdom, beyond understanding

Make Yourself known and pour forth life
Preserve the lives of the young soldiers of Israel
Preserve the lives of the Arab people in Gaza
Preserve the lives of Your people Israel, the Jewish people throughout the Land
Rescue the wicked from the darkness that surrounds and bring Your light
throughout Israel today

May You, the G-d of life and the Giver of life
Bring forth life today
May You, the G-d of Israel
Reveal Yourself as the One G-d, the only G-d,
The righteous One, Holy and true forever
