Jehovah Jireh

Manna and Quail

Manna falls like dew
Quails drift to blanket the ground
The Lord God provides

written in response to The Daily Post prompt – “blanket”, inspired by Exodus 16

Tomorrow and Tomorrow

Tomorrow, and
Tomorrow, and
Tomorrow . . .
Cast not your mind
Anxiously towards tomorrow –
But seek the kingdom of God,
Have faith in Jehovah Jireh;
Do not worry for food,
Life is more than that;
Do not worry for clothing,
The body needs more that that;
Worry will not add one day
And the Father knows
Than His creation, man, must be
Sheltered and sustained;
So seek the kingdom of God,
And cast to the hazard,
All anxiety for tomorrow.

Jehovah Jireh

Written following this week’s Daily Post writing challenge for Tanka poetry:

Jehovah Jireh
My Lord God and provider
You nourish my soul
Your grace is sufficient
And Your love has conquered all
