A Day of Dancing & Rejoicing

I am joining with katemotaung.com for Five Minute Friday. The goal is to write for five minutes about a word. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

Today’s prompt is:

dance - Version 2

A Day of Dancing & Rejoicing

When the LORD brought back
the captivity of Zion,
We were like those who dream.
Then our mouth was filled with laughter,
And our tongue with singing.
Then they said among the nations,
“The LORD has done great things for them.”
The LORD has done great things for us,
And we are glad.
Bring back our captivity, O LORD,
As the streams in the South.
Those who sow in tears
Shall reap in joy.
He who continually goes forth weeping,
Bearing seed for sowing,
Shall doubtless come again with rejoicing,
Bringing his sheaves with him.

Tehillim/Psalm 126

What a day of dancing and rejoicing this day will be!
The Lord will fully and completely
bring back the captivity of Zion!

The people of Israel will know their G-d
He will be their G-d and they will be his people
in righteousness and truth

There is no question and no doubt
that this will happen
All the nations will look and see
the goodness of the G-d of Israel

There will be no other god
Exalted in that day
The one G-d, the living G-d,
The holy one of Israel will be
Exalted and lifted high
in that day

Hear, O Israel

Shema - Hear, O Israel
Shema – Hear, O Israel

Writing Every Day for Thirty-One Days
to Speak Life over Israel

While much of the earth is speaking death and accusation over the Jewish nation, let’s take 31 days to do the opposite. Let’s speak life over the nation of Israel and the Jewish people.

Day 28: Hope

There is hope in the midst of the storm
Israel, remember your G-d, your maker
Remember the one who formed and fashioned you,
Who made and called you forth

Israel, you are not forgotten nor forsaken
The G-d of the whole earth is your G-d
He watches over you
He keeps you
He calls you his own

Israel, your hope is in your G-d
He is jealous over you
He is zealous for you
He is calling you near

In the midst of trial
Run into the embrace of your maker
In the midst of tribulation
Turn to him

He will deliver you, O Israel
The only true and living G-d
will deliver and bring you life
He is breathing life into you
He is restoring your soul
He is redeeming you
Your G-d never sleeps nor slumbers

Hear, O Israel,
Trust in the Lord
from this time forth and forevermore
He is yours
You are his
Your hope is in your G-d

Love = Do Not Be Silent

Day 7: Love

How can we stand with
and love the people of Israel
in these days and this time?

How can we NOT BE SILENT
as the majority were
just seventy years ago

We must lift our voices
We must cry out
We must sound the trumpet

In these days, in this time
We cannot stand and watch
anti-Semitism go unopposed
It is not an option to be SILENT yet again

May many in this generation lift our voices
with and on behalf of Zion,
Jerusalem, the Jewish people

May we make a choice and do what is right
May we be righteous in the sight of G-d and man
May we stand with Zion and Jerusalem
and Israel in days of crisis
and tell them
Love, life, hope and deliverance are coming for Zion
and all Israel

Day 1: Calling

Israel

You are the Son of Abraham, the Son of Isaac
You are Jacob who wrestled and won

You are the Firstborn Son
Child of Destiny

Set Apart among the nations
Holiness to the Lord
The first fruits of His increase

Remembered Forever

You were given the Torah to walk in His ways
You were given the Tabernacle to dwell with G-d
The Temple, the Priesthood, the Fragrant Offering
All given to you, O Israel

Remember Your Destiny, O Jerusalem
Remember Who You are

Called, Chosen, Elect
Made for G-d
Remember O Israel
Yizkor, O Chosen Ones
