Part of you

How frail is humanity! How short life is! (Job 14:1; NLT).

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).

*****************************

My body, mind and heart
Belong to you, Lord –

Though clearly they are fragile,
Mortal, finite.

Yet my soul belongs to you
For evermore, Lord –

For it’s a holy and immortal
Part of you.

One God

Before my birth,
In life,
In death,
And for eternity,
You’re always with me,
Always here within me –
For there is no God but you,
My Lord,
And holy is your name.

Greet all God’s people with a holy kiss (1 Thessalonians 5:26; NIV).

 

Lord,
Although you’re with me,
I can’t hug you;

Although you’re with me,
I can’t kiss you;

But I can kiss your people,
Here, instead.
