I’ve fallen

Lord,

I’ve fallen
Straight into your hands.   

I’m thunderstruck, 
Yet I will gladly stay.

I can’t go any further –
Your arms hold me,

So here I will give thanks,
Rejoice, and pray. 

Lord,

I’ve fallen
Straight into your hands.

There’s nowhere else 
That I would rather be.   

So I will gladly stay 
With you forever, 

For here, at last, held tightly, Lord,
I’m free.

Yet you love us as we are –
Year after year.

Prayer

Jesus replied, “ ‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind’ ” (Matthew 22:37; NLT).

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


Lord,
In prayer,
May my mind
Unite with yours,
Like rain
Falling into a stream.

Lord,
In worship,
May my heart
Unite with yours,
Like a stream
Flowing into a river.

Lord,
In contemplation,
May my soul
Unite with yours,
Like a river
Pouring into the sea.

Through Jesus’ name,
Amen.

Dust

Hello everyone. Today there are two short reflections on the same theme:


Dust

“Lord, I am not worthy to have you come into my home” (Matthew 8:8; NLT).

Then Abraham spoke again. “Since I have begun, let me speak further to my Lord, even though I am but dust and ashes” (Genesis 18:27; NLT).

Serve only the LORD your God and fear him alone. Obey his commands, listen to his voice, and cling to him (Deuteronomy 13:4; NLT).

…lead me along the path of everlasting life (Psalm 139:24; NLT).


Lord,
I am not worthy
To approach you.

Let me be a speck of dust
Clinging to your sandal,

So I can follow the path of everlasting life
In your presence every day.

Through Jesus’ name,
Amen.


Dust 

For he knows how weak we are; he remembers we are only dust (Psalm 103:14; NLT).

If any household or town refuses to welcome you or listen you your message, shake its dust from your feet as you leave (Matthew 10:14; NLT).

Though they stumble they will never fall, for the LORD holds them by the hand
(Psalm 37:24; NLT).


Lord,
You know how weak I am.

I’m only a speck of dust
Clinging to your sandal.

When I let you down,
Please don’t shake me off.

When I stumble,
Please don’t let me fall.

In Jesus’ name,
Amen.
