The past

He has planted eternity in the human heart
(Ecclesiastes 3:11; NLT).

1. The past
Is not behind us:
It is now.

2. The future,
Not ahead:
Already here.

3. Far beyond time,
God pours out justice
And mercy,

4. Uniting us all in his peace:
No beginning;
No end.

His government and its peace will never end
(Isaiah 9:7; NLT).

Oneness

Blessed art thou,
O Lord the God of Israel,
our Father from eternity to eternity
(1 Chronicles 29:10; DRB).

Blessed are you, Lord,
The Maker of heaven
And earth.

You are over, within,
And living through
All you create.

We live and move,
And have being, Lord,
Only in you.

We are one with you,
One with all people,
And all that exists.

There is no beginning;
No past, and no future;
No end –

Just this timeless moment, Lord,
One
In your infinite love.


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