Sacred elements

Lord,

Thank you for this
Heavenly, holy world,

And all the sacred elements
Of life –

For earth 
And air;

For water, Lord, 
And fire; 

For peace, 
And truth;

And, far above all others, Lord,
For love.

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

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1; NLT). 

God is light (1 John 1:5; NIV). 

God is a consuming fire (Deuteronomy 4:24; NIV).

God is the spring of living water (Jeremiah 2:13; NIV).

The Lord is peace (Judges 6:24; NLT).

The Spirit is truth (1 John 5:6; NKJV). 

God is love (1 John 4:16; NLT).

The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love (Galatians 5:6; NIV).
