Jacob’s Dream: Jacob’s Ladder

He saw a stairway
Its top reaching to heaven
Myriad angels
And above them the Lord God
Speaking into Jacob’s dream

“This land shall be yours;
Your descendants shall spread out,
To bless all the Earth;
I’m with and watch over you;
I promise not to leave you”

written following today’s daily prompt at The Daily Post, and inspired by Genesis 28:10-22 (NIV)

My Words, Your Mouths

This I promise:
My words,
In your mouths,
The mouths of your children,
And your children’s children,
To the end of time,
According to My will,
And by My Holy Spirit;
This is my covenant,
With all those who repent,
And accept My Son.

inspired by Isaiah 59:21
