One goal

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us (John 1:14; NIV).

We have the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16; NLT).

I will give them one heart (Jeremiah 32:39; NLT).

Whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17; NIV).

Three things will last forever – faith, hope, and love – and the greatest of these is love (1 Corinthians 13:13; NLT).

Let love be your highest goal! (1 Corinthians 14:1; NLT).

Lord,
We share one flesh
With you,

One mind,
One heart,
One soul.

So, may we share
One faith
With you,

One hope,
One love,
One goal.

Everything I need

Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth and the life” (John 14:6; NLT).

Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life” John 6:35; NIV).

Jesus said, “Come to me all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28; NLT).

You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and your are right, because that’s what I am (John13:13; NLT).

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

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

Lord Jesus,
You are everything
I need:

My birth,
My life,
My heart-beat,
And my breath;

My bread,
My meat,
My shelter,
And my rest;

My way,
My guide,
My teacher,
And my friend;

My help,
My hope,
My comfort
At life’s end.

How can I serve you?

I am weary and worn out, O God (Proverbs 30:1; NLT).

Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer (Romans 12:12; NRSV).

How can I serve you, Lord,

With chronic illness?

I’m always tired,

And don’t go out much now.

I have so little energy

For helping others.

Instead, may I learn

To rejoice in hope, my Father,

To be patient in suffering,

And to persevere in prayer.

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