These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you. As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him. ~ 1 John 2:26-27, NASB




Life came at me hard—

Doors closed

Friends left

Foes pounced

Time chased me,

Backed me in corner

Made me a mourner

‘Til His Shalom restored—

Green pastures

Still waters

Packed tables

Stuffed from end to end,

Abounding with refreshment

Gushing with enjoyment

‘Til my cup overflowed—

Oil spilt

Fire flared

Wind blew

Amazing Grace showered me

During spirit’s drinking spree

‘Til anointing dumbfounded the enemy;

Spiritual edge omitted from life’s serenity.
