Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles (Isaiah 40:31; NKJV).

God is light (1 John 1:5; NIV).

He will heal us (Hosea 6:1; NLT).


In meditation,
I take my sick friend’s hand,

Then we rise together
Into your light,
So we may both be healed.


I hate all your show and pretence – the hypocrisy of your religious festivals and solemn assemblies (Amos 5:21; NLT).

If you claim to be religious but don’t control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless (James 1:26; NLT).

The time is coming when those who kill you will think they are doing a holy service for God. This is because they have never known the Father or me (John 16:2-3; NLT).

Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you (James 1:27; NLT).


I wish there were no
In this world –

For all we need
Is kindness,

And joy,
And peace.


Breathe in light

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer (Psalm 19:14; NLT).

From the depths of despair, O Lord, I call for your help (Psalm 130:1; NLT).


Breathe in light,
And breathe out darkness;

Breathe in peace,
And breathe out stress.

Breathe in fire,
And breathe out coldness;

Breathe in love,
And breathe out hate.

Breathe in truth,
And breathe out falsehood;

Breathe in God –
Breathe out despair.




Remain in me, and I will remain in you (John 15:4; NLT).

God is light (1 John 1:5; NIV).

Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength (Isaiah 40:31; NKJV).

I will be joyful in the God of my salvation! (Habakkuk 3:18; NLT).


During meditation,
The longer I stay
In your light –

Or praying –

The stronger
And more joyful
I become.


God created human beings in his own image (Genesis 1:27; NLT).

For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face (1 Corinthians 13:12; NRSV).


In life, when I look at you,
I see my own image
Dimly reflected back.

But in death
I’ll see you face to face,
At last.
