Assembly of Sheep

Posted by Yona on Thursday, June 21, 2012, In : Preach it: Teach it 

Do you know who’s sitting next to you?

You claim to be my own.

You say you exercise my character,

Yet there are many things unknown.


You speak of sin like it can’t touch you

Because you’ve stayed straight and narrow.

Perhaps you’ve lived quite sheltered,

Shielded from the enemy’s arrow.


Or maybe a fire you have been through,

And on your pedestal you have forgotten.

Pride has obscured the road,

Upon which, you were once trottin’.


Sure you are blessed to ...

Rise Redeemed

Posted by Yona on Wednesday, June 13, 2012, In : Poetry ... Prose 

Sandy sermons
Exiting ears
Pious pews
Regular rears

Strutting saved
Obstinate ornate
Miscarried message
Affects abate

Worldly witness
Conforming child
Floundering fences
Believer beguiled

Compromised corners
Wavering words
Pleasing people
Shapeless  swords

Entertaining error
Father frowns
Inviting iniquity
Ambiguity abounds

Feasting foe
Cunning chaffs
Wrestling wheat
Lucifer laughs

Rise redeemed
Assert authority
Stand strong
Prize priority

United unshaken
Foundation firm
Sharpened swords
Calling confirmed

Resist rebellion...

He is Faithful

Posted by Yona on Thursday, June 7, 2012, In : Poetry ... Prose 

Faith is
~trusting without seeing~
~hanging on with odds a million to one~
~believing like a child that anything can happen~
~knowing G-d can do what is impossible to man~
~having the courage to stand your ground~
~facing Goliath with a sling and a stone~
~transforming a death sentence into a license to live~
~understanding our biggest fan has all the power and provision~
~knowing obedience to G-d towers any earthly reward~
~trusting when we are weak, G-d steps in strong~
~releasing control...

If I boast about anything, it will be about my Abba, the Creator of the Universe, the Creator of me, the One and Only true G-d.

The L-rd drew me unto Himself as a young girl. My introduction to the L-rd, prayer, and His Scriptures was through the women in my family.

He filled me with His Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) at the age of fifteen and has walked with me, teaching me ever since.

His ministry in me has been to use the many gifts He has freely given in order to testify of Him.

His gifts have been plenty, from equipment to do the task at hand to experiences of trials and joys. All that He gives is a gift, treasures of learning, growing, and drawing close to Him.

For me, the greatest of these gifts is to know Him intimately. Without Him, I am powerless against my enemies and fruitless for His kingdom. I am nothing apart from Him.

Through my acceptance of Messiah Yeshua's atonement, I received cleansing of my sins and a place in His Kingdom.

It is because of the Almighty's Chesed, mercy and loving kindness, to me that I am able to testify of Him, share the good news, and pour out His Chesed into my neighbor.

And so I boast about Him, because it IS all about my Abba and the salvation given through His Son.
