Glimpse the invisible

To the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honour and glory (1 Timothy 1;17; NIV).

After the fire a still small voice (1 Kings 19:12; KJV).

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

The Lord is peace (Judges 6:24; NLT).

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


When we glimpse the invisible;

Hear the silent whisper;

Sense the truth;

Experience peace;

And share in love –

We know we’re in the presence
Of our God.

A training course in love

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).

Love your neighbour as yourself (Mark 12:31; NLT).

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

The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love (Galatians 5:6; NIV).


Lord God,

At last,
I glimpse
Your heart’s desire –

That our lives may be
A training course
In love.

Beyond all beauty

Let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us (Psalm 90:17; KJV).

God is light (1 John 1:5; NIV).

Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his ways! (Romans 11:33; NLT).

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



You’re beyond all beauty –
We can’t glimpse you;

Please open our eyes,
So we may see your light.

You’re beyond all wisdom –
We can’t grasp you;

Please open our minds,
So we may hear your truth.

Poor shadow

The people who walk in darkness will see a great light. For those who live in a land of deep darkness, a light will shine (Isaiah 9:2; NLT).

Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life” (John 8:12; NLT).

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it (John 1:5; NLT).



I’d never catch a glimpse
Of my poor shadow,
If it wasn’t for your light
In silent prayer!


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.

Delight in giving

The Lord will […] delight in being good to you (Deuteronomy 30:9; NLT).

Great is the Lord, who delights in blessing his servant with peace! (Psalm 35:27; NLT).

Moses made haste to bow his head toward the earth, and worshipped (Exodus 34:8; RSV).

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



When I glimpse
The depths of your delight
In giving,
I can only bow my head
In silent worship.




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

“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine” (Isaiah 55:8; NLT).

The LORD says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life”
(Psalm 32:8; NLT).

Some people want to tell me
What they think you’re like,
Instead of leaving me
To find out for myself.

If I let them get between us, Lord,
They blot out your light,
And I quickly lose my way
In the darkness.

But you are beyond
All human understanding, Lord –
Your thoughts are not like ours,
And your ways are far beyond
Anything we can imagine,
So none of us can do more
Than glimpse you very dimly.

Lord, help me to stay away
From those who claim
To know the truth,
So I can explore
The paths you show me,
For myself.
