Proverbs in 365 Devotions

June 8

Proverbs 10:27 The fear of the LORD prolongs life, but the years of the wicked will be short. 28 The hope of the righteous brings joy, but the expectation of the wicked will perish. 29 The way of the LORD is a stronghold to the blameless, but destruction to evildoers. 30 The righteous will never be removed, but the wicked will not dwell in the land.

Better Than Prime

Robin Aylor 05/03/2019

Always takin stands, hugh? for yourself
Stompin, fussin, you curse and yell
Really; a sincere thought for others?
You gloat and strain your throat, you take your lovers

“Where is this so called Maker? Ground Shaker?”
“Can you hear my descending evil laugh, Ha ha ha ha ha”
“See I am the taker, the money maker”
“I fear no one’s wrath”

But somewhere, a righteous man loves the Lord
His heart is like full of delight and stuffed with joy
All righteous desires come right to his door
Much better than Prime, no one can destroy

What is your quest? Always straining… never attaining?
Being truly blessed or always depressed?
Stressed in the mess that ends in death? Does that seem best?
Even death won’t get that burden off your chest

I’d rather be new born to a new homeland
Instead of bogged down like zombies drowning in sinking sand
I’d rather have new thoughts, new sight, a new mouth a new life
Find my delight in Jesus Christ, he’s the one thats greater
On both sides of the equator, he’s my spiritual educator
Mediator, navigator, interior decorator… my Savior

All to the glory of God
