Never Forget

I am joining with katemotaung.com 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.

The prompt is:

Forget

Former Dachau Concentration Camp

Former Dachau Concentration Camp

G-d commands us to remember, to remember His goodness and what He has done for us. He asks us to remember. We must remember His faithfulness and lovingkindness in the difficulty and in the storms, in the trials and in the testings. We cannot forget that He is G-d and He is good.

Yesterday I visited former Dachau concentration camp in Dachau, Germany. Never Forget and Never Again are two of the most spoken exhortations related to the Holocaust. Humanity cannot forget what happened. Israel must not forget that G-d has not forgotten Israel. The G-d of Israel is still alive and His kindness is still towards His people, the people He called after Himself.

Never forget – we must never forget the atrocities that happened that we would never stand by silently. We must never stand in silence in the face of anti-Semitism and injustice. We must never forget G-d’s kindness towards us in drawing us near to Himself. We must remember He is the G-d of Israel and there is no other.

Abba’s Heartbeat for Israel

Today’s Prompt: Adjust

hearts to turn & be healed

Abba, where my mind is blinded and I cannot see
Adjust my vision
Where my heart cannot enter in
Remove the veil

Your people Israel are Your firstborn
Yet for many years, decades, centuries
We’ve not seen nor understood

How is this, that our minds are blinded and our hearts are not free?
How is this, that we say we want Your heart yet we don’t love our elder brother?
How is it, that blindness of mind and hardness of heart
still prevail?
And we cannot see Your Word clearly at times

Abba, why is it so hard to believe You love us outside of our works?
Why are we so prone to desire being right rather than being righteous?
Abba, we need the cleansing from iniquity and the washing of the Word and the Spirit

We’ve missed so much of what You said about Israel
In our own self-righteousness
Thinking we were better
Yet Abba, we’re not
We need Your mercy
Like Israel needs Your mercy

Please come and adjust our minds, our hearts, our understanding
That eyes to see, ears to hear and hearts to turn and be healed,
To love our brother Israel
We would have

That in turn
We would ache for this for Israel
Abba, give Your beloved Israel eyes to see, ears to hear, hearts to turn to You and be healed
Let this be our desire

Every Day for Thirty-One Days
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

1 Jeremiah 8:21
2 Jeremiah 31:15

Joined with You

I ponder my journey with You
Day by day
You call me nearer, You draw me deeper
You continuously allow me to join in Your heart

In times of trial and challenge,
In times of prosperity,
You ask me if I want to come nearer

You heart is wide open for me to come in to
You ask me to join with You in those places many will not go

As an intercessor
Standing, waiting, believing
How can I not say, “Yes”
How can I not join with You
For You’ve captivated my heart
And You’ve brought me into this love incomprehensible
And You’ve shown me Your desire

So pray,
Stand,
Wait,
Believe
These things
For Israel
I will do
All of my days
For this is all about You
This is all about Your desire
Persuaded by Your heart
Here I am
I am Yours
Use Me for Yourself,
I am joined together with You,
Together with Israel in this story
Written by Your hand

Begin Again

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:

Begin

To begin again
To start fresh, anew
To look at things differently
To choose life wholeheartedly
To run hard again

Let’s start this race together
In order to finish it together
Take in your surroundings and set your pace
And know that you know
Above all else
He is with you
He is for you
His goodness surrounds you
And will keep you

Choose to set your mind to begin again
The twists and turns of life take us on a journey
We never could have imagined
And never could have prepared for

So when life takes a hard left
Hang on
Choose to trust
He hasn’t forgotten nor forsaken you

His everlasting love
For His firstborn people Israel
Is proof positive
That He is faithful
And He does not lie

G-d bless Israel today in her day of difficulty
And teach us to pray with you
And teach us to trust who you are to Israel
And in this, may we be upheld in our day of testing
As we stand with Israel in hers
