Surrounded by people, fam’ly and love,

I cherish the blessing of prayers and hugs.

We gather as one, all children of G-d,

But sometimes I feel… so diff’rent inside.


The wellspring of my walk that flows within

Comes from a depth many don’t comprehend.

Often I pause and ponder where I am,

Obeying His call, a journey with Him.


I can’t resist as His manna unfolds.

Bubbling, I’m excited with truth untold.

G-d keeps pouring as I’m willing to learn.

My cup overflows; m...

HaShem Machsi - God is My Refuge - Tehillim 91

Posted by Yona on Friday, November 16, 2012, In : Poetry ... Prose 

The following poem is based off of Psalms 91. It is an Acrostic of 22 letters of the English alphabet. Notes follow the poem below.

Abiding in the shadow of Shaddai,

Behold he who sits with the Most High;

Concern nor fear are his with Ad-nai.


Declaring from youth, learned and fully wise,

“Elohai, in Him will I trust. He is my refuge.”


From snares and pestilences, He will protect you.

Great numbers may fall at your side, but no plague will come near you.

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.
