Little Moses

Oh the woe

Of his Hebrew mama

A slave

more restrictions than ever she could imagine

her new baby

beauty engraved in his eyes

staring into her

thirsting for the milk only she could provide

babymilk

But oh she cannot get attached

She will have to release him

heart-named her son

yet to protect him

she packed him

blankets, is he warm?

footbaby

a final feast at her breast

will he cry in hunger for more?

who will find him?

better he is apart

than here unhidden

from death’s hunting

away she sends him down the Nile

may my God 

bless my baby and keep him

And keep him, He did

for 120 years

what hope

though Moses died before walking

in the land promised to Abraham, then Isaac and Jacob

Not part of His sovereign plan

for Moses, the little man of our mighty God

Moses, chosen not forsaken

laws of the Lord written, twice

moses10

40 days on Mount Sinai

with Our God Most High

Near to His holy fire, a bush and a pillar

and pillar of cloud, sky on earth

God spoke to Moses ongoingly

Do you hear Him?

He is pursuing you lovingly

Remove your sandals

Bow your heads

Let walls around your heart fall to death

Be one with Him

For you are His

Then Moses went up to God, and the Lord called to him from the mountain. “This is what you are to tell the house of Jacob and explain to the sons of Israel: ‘You have seen for yourselves what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagle’s wings and brought you to Myself. Now if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, you will be MY treasured possession out of all the nations, for the whole earth is Mine. And unto ME you shall be a kingdom of priests and a holy nation’. There are the words you are to speak to the Israelites” (Exodus 19:3-6).

Welcome all!

Been studying the life of Moses as He has led me to dig into the psalms. If that doesn’t make sense, it is not entirely clear to me either.

But for our purposes here, please know I took some creative license in this poem, outside of what Scripture tells, especially in the reactions and thoughts of his mother before she sent baby Moses up the Nile. The poem itself is inspired through my time with God and Scripture.

There is so much hope and life in every aspect of the Bible. If you read about battles and how certain areas or peoples were destroyed, embedded is a life-giving message.

To love God with all your heart is to obey Him and surrender your entire life so that no pride or desire for your own glory is left. Hard yes, and we will falter.

But nothing is impossible with the supernatural of power of Christ living within us.

Today at https://Facebook.com/jdibble4Him I went live with a gathering of His people. I provided a mini lesson on Moses and read Psalm 90. We shared thoughts and prayed. It is never too late to join the recorded version. Open your Bible to Psalm 90 before you watch.

Psalm 18:1-24 is next up on Monday at 10a Eastern time. Same place, the ministry page mentioned above.

In the meantime, be strong in Him, not yourselves.

Love in Christ,
