Part of you

How frail is humanity! How short life is! (Job 14:1; NLT).

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).

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

My body, mind and heart
Belong to you, Lord –

Though clearly they are fragile,
Mortal, finite.

Yet my soul belongs to you
For evermore, Lord –

For it’s a holy and immortal
Part of you.

I’m not my body

Lord God,

I’m not my body,
Mind,
Or heart –

For all these
Mortal things
Will disappear.

Instead,
I’m a unique
Immortal soul –

Always
And forever
Part of you.

So much suffering

Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows (John 16:33; NLT).

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

Father, if you are willing, please take this cup off suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine (Luke 22:42; NLT).

Hold fast to him (Deuteronomy 10:20; NIV).

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

Lord,

There’s so much suffering
In our brief, human lives,

Such pain to bear,
Such losses to sustain.

Please strengthen us
To face our trials bravely,

And help us to hold fast
Our faith, like you.

Are infinitely holy,
Because they are forever
Part of you.

When I sit

Be silent before the Sovereign Lord (Zephaniah 1:7; NIV).

Israel will bud and blossom and fill the whole earth with fruit! (Isaiah 27:6; NLT).

Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles (Isaiah 40:31; NIV).

I am like a weaned child with its mother, like a weaned child I am content
(Psalm 131:2; NIV).

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

Lord, when I sit
In silent contemplation

May I open my heart to you,
Like a budding rose;

Entrust my life to you,
Like a soaring bird;

And yield my soul to you,
Like a resting child.

May I slowly let go

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).

Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit (Luke 23:46; KJV).

I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one – as you are in me, Father, and I am in you (John 17:21; NLT).

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

Lord,
May I slowly let go of
My self,
Becoming aware
Of our oneness
In deep silence.

Lord,
May I slowly relinquish
My self,
Remaining aware
Of our oneness
Day and night.

Lord,
May I slowly surrender
My self,
Fully aware
Of our oneness
In life, and in death.
