You poured your teaching out

My life is poured out like water
(Psalm 22:14; NLT).

1. Lord,
You poured your teaching out:

2. Lord,
You poured your blessings out:

3. Lord,
You poured your mercy out:

4. Lord,
You poured your Spirit out:


1. He taught them by telling many stories in the form of parables (Mark 4:2; NLT).

2. Lord you poured out blessings on your land (Psalm 85:1; NLT).

3. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace that he richly poured out on us (Ephesians 1:7-8; CSB).

4. My spirit is poured out in agony (Lamentations 2:11; NLT).

He was in such agony of spirit that his sweat fell to the ground like great drops of blood (Luke 22:44; NLT).

While Jesus was here on earth, he offered prayers and pleadings, with a loud cry and tears, to the one who could rescue him from death (Hebrews 5:7; NLT).

This is my blood, which confirms the covenant between God and his people. It is poured out as a sacrifice for many (Mark 14:24; NLT).

      • Oh, Lesley, that one of the loveliest things anyone has ever said to me. I don’t know what to say. I’m very touched XXXXXX

      • Yes, you’re right. It can be surprising, startling, even alarming as the inspiration for each piece just arrives. I’ve been known to hide under my duvet. Sometimes the writing takes over my whole life and I get horribly exhausted. Sometimes there is nothing for days, and I start to think it has all come to an end, then suddenly it starts up again. Sometimes the poems come in my dreams. I have to be prepared to go with the inspiration at any time, night and day. XxxxxxX

      • Inspiration often comes when we’re trying to get to sleep or, as you say, in our dreams or in the early hours of the morning just as we’re drifting off to sleep. What’s God up to, I wonder. lol I once jumped off a bus and rushed straight to the public loos to jot something down that came to me. Why I didn’t think of a café I’ll never know! xxx
