We are your living temple

We are the temple of the living God (2 Corinthians 6:16; NLT).

Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God (John 20:31; NLT).

God is Spirit (John 4:24; NLT).


We are your living temple,
God, our Father.

We are your living temple,
Christ, the Son.

We are your living temple,
Holy Spirit.

We are your living temple,
Three in One.


spiritual development, personal growth, faith, exploration, wholeness,

May it be

If we love each other, God lives in us (1 John 4:12; NLT).

It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me (Galatians 2:20; NLT).

The Holy Spirit […] lives in us (2 Timothy 1:14; NIV).


May it be
No longer

I who lives,
But you
Who lives
Within me.



So tired

Come to me all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens (Matthew 11:28; NLT).

I am too distressed even to pray (Psalm 77:4; NLT).

The Spirit… intercedes for us with sighs too deep for words (Romans 8:26; NRSV).

People are suffering all around me,
But I’m so tired and burdened
That I can’t even pray.

So, may your Holy Spirit
Intercede for them on my behalf,
With sighs too deep for words,

While I wait patiently on you,
In stillness,
And in silence.


Like God

Put on your new nature, created to be like God – truly righteous and holy (Ephesians 4:24; NLT).

Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do (Ephesians 5:1; NLT).

Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ (Ephesians 5:2; NLT).

The Holy Spirit… lives within us (2 Timothy 1:14; NLT). 

I know this sounds ridiculous,
But you created me
To be like you.

Please help me
To follow your Son’s example
In everything I think,
And say, and do,

Living a life of love
Through the power
Of your Holy Spirit,
Who dwells within me.


Living in God

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

Christ is all that matters, and he lives in all of us (Colossians 3:11; NLT).

Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you – guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us (2 Timothy 1:14; NIV).

Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them (1 John 4:16; NIV).


You live in me,
And through me.

Please help me
To remember your presence

Living in love,
So I may
Live in you.



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

And yet, O LORD, you are our Father! (Isaiah 64:8; NLT).

For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you (Luke 17:21; NKJV).

And Christ lives within you (Romans 8:10; NLT).

But you have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives within you (1 John 2:27; NLT).

During contemplation,
Our souls go on
A journey of discovery
Whose goal is you –
The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
Living within us all.
