those who wait on G-d

I am joining with katemotaung.com for Five Minute Friday. The goal is to write for five minutes about a word. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

Today’s prompt is:

Weary

IMG_7063

The youth will faint and grow weary, the young men shall utterly fall, but those who wait on the G-d shall renew their strength…they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40

The Holy One of Israel
Doesn’t grow weary
He doesn’t faint
nor forget his people
in their difficulty

He doesn’t turn away
from the people
He called after himself

As Jerusalem suffers,
As Israel experiences
Bigotry and boycotts,
Hatred and murder
From enemies on every side

Holy One of Israel
Rise up on behalf of Jerusalem
Rise up on behalf of your people

You do not grow weary
You do not slumber nor sleep
You watch over Israel

You will finish what you started
in this people you chose
For your name
and your glory

Abba, help your people today
Let Israel know you are with them
To deliver them

He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep Tehillim/Psalm 130

Perhaps

o-VIGLIA-ISRAEL-facebook - Version 2

Writing Every Day for Thirty-One Days
to Speak Life over Israel

While much of the earth is speaking death and accusation over the Jewish nation, let’s take 31 days to do the opposite. Let’s speak life over the nation of Israel and the Jewish people.

Day 27: Perhaps

Perhaps things are better than they seem
Perhaps the hatred we see is not really hatred at all
Perhaps the darkness of young ones
desiring to murder Jews in the name of god
isn’t as bad as it seems
Perhaps peace is possible
Perhaps

Perhaps the world will not continue in their anti-Semitic ways
Perhaps Israel will not be hated continually,
in the same way Jews have been hated century after century
Perhaps

Perhaps the kings will bow before the one G-d
Perhaps the enemies of G-d will stop their hating
Perhaps those who hate the G-d of Israel
will change their ways
and change their minds
and change their hearts
Perhaps

May the wicked turn to G-d
that they may not perish in their wickedness
May those who glorify death
turn from their wicked ways
and seek the living G-d who gave them life

May the haters find G-d’s love
May those seeking death find G-d’s life
May those given to darkness encounter G-d’s light

May G-d keep and protect his people Israel
from those seeking their destruction
May Israel find deliverance and life
in the G-d who has never forgotten nor forsaken them
May Israel run into the heart of G-d
who made Israel for his own glory

Baruch haShem

Standing with Israel, Standing with G-d

O G-d, do not be silent;
 do not hold aloof; 
do not be quiet, O G-d! For Your enemies rage,
 Your foes assert themselves. They plot craftily against Your people,
 take counsel against Your treasured ones. They say, “Let us wipe them out as a nation; 
Israel’s name will be mentioned no more.”…pursue them with Your tempest, 
terrify them with Your storm. Cover their faces with shame
 so that they seek Your name, O Lord…May they know
 that Your name, Yours alone, is the Lord, 
supreme over all the earth. Tehillim/Psalm 83

Israel, Remember Your Destiny

Hear-O-Israel

Writing Every Day for Thirty-One Days
to Speak Life over Israel

While much of the earth is speaking death and accusation over the Jewish nation, let’s take 31 days to do the opposite. Let’s speak life over the nation of Israel and the Jewish people.

Day 25: Crash

As the difficulties come and stay
and do not quickly fade away
May you help Israel to find their safety in you
O G-d of Israel

Today as the tumult ebbs and flows
in the land you called your own
Would you help your people
to know you, to see you,
to love you with all their heart, soul and strength

Shema Yisrael
Adonai Eloheinu
Adonai Echad
Baruch Shem Kavod
Malkhuto Le’olam va’ed

This day Abba calls you home
O Israel
to love him with all your heart, all your soul
and with all your strength

He hasn’t left you alone
He hasn’t forsaken you
He will keep all his promises
to you and your descendants forever

Hear, O Israel
The Lord is G-d
He is one

Remember this daily
Do not forget who you are
O Israel, Sons of Jacob
Do not forget your destiny
Your G-d has written for you

Isa 49

Joy is Coming to Zion

Writing Every Day for Thirty-One Days
to Speak Life over Israel

While much of the earth is speaking death and accusation over the Jewish nation, let’s take 31 days to do the opposite. Let’s speak life over the nation of Israel and the Jewish people.

Day 23: Joy

Our mouths were filled with laughter
Our hearts with joy and singing
as the G-d brought the captive ones of Zion back

Despite the daily difficulties
of Israeli life today
The day of joy and gladness,
The day of triumph and rejoicing
will come one day very soon

It will be in a moment in time and history
One day soon
when Zion sings and shouts
and rejoices in G-d their maker,
The anointed one,
Their deliverer

Joy and life are coming one day soon to Zion
Hope and deliverance,
Healing and righteousness
like a blazing torch
Will be Zion

Jerusalem is his joy
and his great delight
The city of G-d’s choosing forever

I will delight in Jerualem
and take great joy in her singing

Jerusalem will sing
Jerusalem will rejoice
Israel will shine
like the sun
with beauty and strength
One day soon

Jerusalem’s joy will be known
Sooner than we can imagine

Jerusalem, take heart
Your deliverer is coming
Your deliverer is coming soon

Shabbat Shalom to all who are reading!

Dedicated to the sons of Zion, the inhabitants of Jerusalem, all of Israel and to all Jewish people everywhere.

Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem, may you prosper who love her. Tehillim/Psalm 122

This is not the end of Israel

Writing Every Day for Thirty-One Days
to Speak Life over Israel

While much of the earth is speaking death and accusation over the Jewish nation, let’s take 31 days to do the opposite. Let’s speak life over the nation of Israel and the Jewish people.

Day 21: Wave

There is a storm of difficulty
Landing upon the Jewish people today
There is a wave of terror
that has crashed upon Israel

The rage within
is manifesting
and the hatred without
is making itself known

Yet this storm and this wave
are nothing compared to that
which will soon come

The one G-d will have his way
He will take care of the rage and hatred
Himself
All who rage against him
will soon bow before him
as his perfect storm
crushes death, darkness and hatred

This rage will end
This storm will cease
This wave will not
be the end
of Israel

G-d of Israel, please break in
Please renew strength
Please calm the storms within
Please have your way without
Please make yourself known
and bring your enemies low
before your feet

That all the wicked
may see you
and turn from their wicked ways
and glorify the Holy One of Israel

Please pray for the peace of Jerusalem and all Israel in these days of great difficulty. Tehillim/Psalm 122
