Your living shrine

Make me like one of your hired hands (Luke 15:19; NIV).

Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all (Mark 9:35; NIV).

Whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17; NIV).

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

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

Lord,

Make me your willing slave,
For evermore.

Make me your hired hand,
For evermore.

Make me your loving child,
For evermore.

Make me your faithful spouse,
For evermore.

Make me a part of you,
For evermore.

Make me at one with you,
For evermore.

Make me your living shrine,
For evermore.

Your purpose

 

Lord God,

At last,
I understand
Your purpose –

You want us
To become Love,
Just like you.

This spinning planet

People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God (Matthew 4:4; NLT).

The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known (Psalm 19:1-2; NLT).

He will rejoice over you with joyful songs (Zephaniah 3:17; NLT).

Righteousness smiles down from heaven (Psalm 85:11; NLT).

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

Each day
Your words renew
This spinning planet, Lord;

Each day,
Your song re-lights
The heavens above;

Each day,
Your dance rekindles
Every creature;

Each day,
Your smile refills us
With your love.

How frail is humanity! How short is life, how full of trouble! (Job 14:1; NLT).

Lord God,

You are our darkness,
And our light;

Our drought,
And our rain;

Our famine,
And our harvest;

Our desert,
And our shelter;

Our ocean,
And our harbour;

Our wandering,
And our resting-place;

Our frailty,
And our pilgrimage;

Our deepest longing,
And our journey’s end.

You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind (Luke 10:27; NLT).

Lord God,

At last,
I glimpse
Your heart’s desire –

That our lives may be
A training course
In love.
