Our essence

The Son is the radiance of his glory and the representation of his essence (Hebrews 1:3; NET).

God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him (John 1:3; NLT).

God is Spirit (John 4:24; NLT).

“I am the Alpha and the Omega – the beginning and the end,” says the Lord God (Revelation 1:8; NLT).

***************************

Lord,
You are our essence,
And our centre.

Lord,
You are our maker,
And our friend.

Lord,
You are our life-blood,
And our spirit.

Lord,
You’re our beginning,
And our end.

Beyond all beauty

Let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us (Psalm 90:17; KJV).

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

Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his ways! (Romans 11:33; NLT).

Lord,
You’re beyond all beauty –
We can’t glimpse you;

Please open our eyes,
So we may see your light.

Lord,
You’re beyond all wisdom –
We can’t grasp you;

Please open our minds,
So we may hear your truth.

When we don’t seek you

There are so many references for this short prayer that I’ve included them underneath it.

 

Lord,
When we don’t seek you
In our souls,
We lose our chance
To live at one with you.

And serve you
One step at a time –

Right now!

In heaven

He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever (Revelation 21:4; NLT).

*********************************

 

Lord,

Will there be land
And sea in heaven?

Will there be sun,
And shining moon above?

Will there be woods,
And beautiful, high mountains?

Will there be laughter, joy,
And endless love?
