I always love hearing from those of you who read this E-quip Devotion. I love your testimonies, prayers, encouragement, and victories. I also love when people send me things that God has given to them. Recently, I received a poem from a long-time Equipper that deserves to be shared. So, hear it is and a big “thank you” to Paula!
On the Porch of the Lord
A place of refreshment, the porch of the Lord…
Pull up a chair, take in spiritual air.
Jesus always has time, and His is the power–
Receive there His touch in this end-time hour.
Like Mary, take time to sit at His feet;
Come to His porch for relief from life’s heat.
Only one thing is needful and truly can please–
His Word and His presence, felt on each breeze.
He offers living water, quenching everyone’s thirst;
And that’s yours there daily, by seeking Him first.
There’s joy on His porch, with your sisters and brothers,
As you find your needs met while caring about others.
The healing and peace which only Christ can bring
Are found there at all times–an everlasting spring.
Taste there His love, so generously poured;
Your “cup will run over” on the porch of the Lord.
P. A. Oltrogge
Have a great day!
