There’s nothing left

The Lord is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid? (Psalm 27:1).

Lord,

There’s nothing left
For me to be afraid of,
Now that I have found
My shadow side.

There’s nothing left
For me to be afraid of,
Now that I can hear
My shadow’s voice.

There’s nothing left
For me to be afraid of,
Now that I accept
My shadow’s words.

And there’s nothing left
For me to be afraid of,
Now that I embrace
My shadow self.

I lift my eyes

I lift my eyes to you, O God (Psalm 123:1; NLT).

Ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities – his eternal power and divine nature (Romans 1:20; NLT).

You are the temple of the living God (2 Corinthians 6:16; NLT).

I lift my eyes
To see you
All around me, Lord,

And close my eyes
To see you
In myself.

It makes no sense

Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them (1 John 4:16; NIV).

To tell you that I love you,

It makes no sense
To say that you love me,

It makes no sense
To add that we love everyone –

Since all are one in love,
Eternally.

Of selfishness
And bitterness.

May your love
Bind us into one –
Your kingdom come,
Your will be done.
