Breathing

I’m breathing in
Your love
For me.

May I breathe out
Your love
To all I meet.

You understand

He forgives all my sins (Psalm 103:2; NLT).

The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need (Psalm 23:1; NLT).

Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do (Ephesians 5:1; NLT).

We will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ (Ephesians 4:15; NLT).

The Lord – who is the Spirit – makes us more and more like him (2 Corinthians 3:18; NLT).

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

Lord, you understand,
Love,
And forgive me;

There’s nothing else
I’d ask you, Lord,
To do.

Help me
To do the same,
For other people,

So I become,
Lord Christ,
Much more like you.

The worst and the best

God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them (1 John 4:16; NLT).

Everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard (Romans 3:23; NLT).

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

Lord God,
I live in you,
And you in me.

Perhaps I am
The very worst
Of you,

But you, Lord,
Are the very best
Of me.

Beyond words

I was caught up to paradise and heard things so astounding that they cannot be expressed in words (2 Corinthians 12:4; NLT).

The Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans (Romans 8:26; NIV).

You love him even though you have never seen him […] and you rejoice with a glorious inexpressible joy (1 Peter 1:8; NLT).

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

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

Our words
Are nothing more

Than sounds
And symbols, Lord,

Pointing towards
The truth beyond words

That is You.

Love everyone

Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them (Romans 12:9; NLT).

Love your neighbour as yourself (James 2:8; NLT).

Love ye therefore the stranger (Deuteronomy 10:19; KJV).

Love your enemies (Matthew 5:44; NIV).

Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing (Luke 23:34; NLT).

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

Love everyone,
Exactly as they are –

No matter what they’ve thought,
Or said, or done.

Love everyone,
Exactly as they are –

No matter how they hurt
Or let you down.

Love everyone,
Exactly as they are –

By following the lead
Of God’s own Son.
