I lift my eyes

I lift my eyes to you, O God (Psalm 123:1; NLT).

Ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities – his eternal power and divine nature (Romans 1:20; NLT).

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

……………………………………………………….

 

 

I lift my eyes
To see you
All around me, Lord,

And close my eyes
To see you
In myself.

It makes no sense

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

I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one (John 17:22; NLT).

You are all one in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:28; NLT).

……………………………………………………………………….

 

It make no sense
To tell you that I love you,

It makes no sense
To say that you love me,

It makes no sense
To add that we love everyone –

Since all are one in love,
Eternally.

Your will be done

Lord God,
Our world is in a mess
Of selfishness
And bitterness.

Bind us into one –
Your kingdom come,
Your will be done.

Dry bones

If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me (Jeremiah 29:13-14; NLT).

He found them in a desert land, in an empty, howling wasteland (Deuteronomy 32:10; NLT).

He led me all around among the bones that covered the valley floor. They were scattered everywhere across the ground and were completely dried out (Ezekiel 37:2; NLT).

You are with me (Psalm 23:4; NIV).

……………………………………………………..

 

Lord,
I seek you out
In lonely desert sands,
Whilst wandering among
My own dry bones –
For you are here.

Prayer

Whole

You will be made complete with all the fulness of life and power that comes from God (Ephesians 3:19; NLT).

You […] are complete through your union with Christ (Colossians 2:10; NLT).

………………………………………………

 

Lord God,

Today, you showed me
I’m completely whole,

Because the less there is of me,
The more you give;

So you make up
For all of my deficiencies.

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.

Prayer

We’re dying

A wise person thinks a lot about death (Ecclesiastes 7:4; NLT).

Teach us to realise the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom (Psalm 90:12; NLT).

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

…………………………………………..

 

Lord,
We’re dying –

Sick or well,
Death comes a little closer
To us all
Each day.

Please help us
To fix our hearts on you
Until life’s end,

When we will reunite
With you
For evermore.
