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).

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

Explore

“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).


Lord,
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.
