Be holy

You must be holy, because I, the Lord, am holy (Leviticus 20:26; NLT).

Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes (Ephesians 1:4; NLT).

Keep on seeking, and you will find (Matthew 7:7; NLT).

Use your whole body as an instrument to do what is right for the glory of God (Romans 6:13; NLT).

Lord,
May my flesh be holy,
So I can seek you today.

May my mind be holy,
So I can hear you today.

May my heart be holy,
So I can love you today.

May my soul be holy,
So I can find you today.

May my life be holy,
So I can serve you today.

There’s nothing left

The Lord is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid? (Psalm 27:1).

……………………………………………………………

 

 

Lord,

There’s nothing left
For me to be afraid of,
Now that I have found
My shadow side.

There’s nothing left
For me to be afraid of,
Now that I can hear
My shadow’s voice.

There’s nothing left
For me to be afraid of,
Now that I accept
My shadow’s words.

And there’s nothing left
For me to be afraid of,
Now that I embrace
My shadow self.

May I glimpse you

There is […] one God and Father, who is over all and in all and living through all (Ephesians 4:5-6; NLT).

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge (Psalm 19:1-2; NIV).

In him we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28, NIV).

The Lord is near (Genesis 28:16; NLT).

…………………………………………….

 

May I glimpse you
In all I see,

And know you, Lord,
In all I hear.

May I touch you
In all I meet,

And find you, Lord,
For you are near.

If we seek God

Keep on seeking, and you will find (Matthew 7:7; NLT).

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him (Psalm 37:7; NIV).

For God alone my soul waits in silence (Psalm 62:1; ESV).

Clouds and thick darkness surround him (Psalm 97:2; NIV).

Before daybreak the next morning, Jesus got up and went out to an isolated place to pray (Mark 1:35; NLT).

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands (Psalm 19:1; NLT).

You are the temple of the living God (Luke 17:21; NKJV).

 

If we seek God
We cannot fail to find him,

As long as we look
In helpful ways and places –

In stillness,
And in silence;

In solitude,
And darkness;

In people,
And in nature;

And in contemplation,
Deep within ourselves.

Prayer

Waiting for God

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him (Psalm 37:7; NIV).

For God alone my soul waits in silence (Psalm 62:1; ESV).

The Lord must wait for you to come to him so he can show you his love and compassion (Isaiah 30:18; NLT).

 

As long as we
Keep on waiting
For God,
We will find him
Waiting
For us.
