Joyful Tree Bloom

September 7, 2014

Psalm 84:4-5,10 AMP
4 Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are those who dwell in Your house and Your presence; they will be singing Your praises all the day long. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!
5 Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man whose strength is in You, in whose heart are the highways to Zion.

10 For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand [anywhere else]; I would rather be a doorkeeper and stand at the threshold in the house of my God than to dwell [at ease] in the tents of wickedness.


Joyful Tree Bloom

Joyful tree planted in the courts of the Lord
Ever praising
Ever green
Ever fresh
Anointed with fresh oil
Ever new
The oil of joy
Before the throne of God
Before the Lamb
Living waters flow.

Joyful tree bloom
An everlasting joy
An everlasting love
An everlasting sign

An everlasting song.

As the Deer

Psalm 42:1-2As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?

From NetBible Ps 42:1-2

  • The psalmist recalls how he once worshiped in the Lord’s temple, but laments that he is now oppressed by enemies in a foreign land.
  • pants[06165](with thirst)= to long for, to cry for
  • thirsts[06770] = parched, suffer dryness
    *A future thirst is coming due to the lack of hearing …
    “Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord GOD, “That I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine of bread, Nor a thirst for water, But of hearing the words of the LORD. -Amos 8:11
  • “When can i go meet with God?” = When will I go and appear [to] the face of God- in His presence?

As the deer pants for the streams, O Lord
So my soul pants for You
How lovely is Your dwelling place, O LORD Almighty
My soul yearns, even faints for Your courts
My heart and my flesh cry out for You, the living God
O to sing for joy before my King Jesus!

How blessed are those who dwell in Your house! They are ever praising You. -Ps84:4

Better is one day in Your courts than a thousand elsewhere! -Ps84:10

As the deer, O LORD, my soul longs
Even faints for Your courts
O to dwell in the joy of Your presence -Ps 16:11,21:6,43:3-5,46:4
I long to be ever praising You
Jesus my King!
-Ps84

Psalm 43:3-5 NASB
3 O send out Your light and Your truth, let them lead me;
Let them bring me to Your holy hill
And to Your dwelling places.
4 Then I will go to the altar of God,
To God my exceeding joy;
And upon the lyre(harp) I shall praise You, O God, my God.
5 Why are you in despair, O my soul?
And why are you disturbed within me?
Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him,
The help of my countenance and my God.

The Sparrow’s Home

May 1, 2012

[BRIDE] I am the rose of Sharon, a [humble] lily of the valleys [that grows in deep and difficult places]. -Song 2:1

Pressed lily in the valley, hard pressed on every side -2 Co 4:7-9
I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears
Each of your tears is a precious gem.
-Ps 56:8

I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; behold, I will heal you. On the third day you shall go up to the house of the LORD. -2Ki 20:5

Ever praising, your prayers are a sweet incense set before Me
The lifting up of you hands as the evening sacrifice. -Ps 141:2

You will pass thru this valley of weeping
Making it a place of springs
Your tears become pools of blessings
For the sparrow, ever praising
Has a home near the altars of the King,
The LORD God Almighty.
-Ps 84:3-4,6

Pressed lily in the valley
A perfect rose, a sweet incense that forever speaks:
I am His and He is mine.
-2Co 4:7-9;Is 43:1
