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.

I’m not my body

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).

There is a spirit within people, the breath of the Almighty within them (Job 32:8; NLT).

The person who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with him (1 Corinthians 6:17; NLT).

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

Lord God,

I’m not my body,
Mind,
Or heart –

For all these
Mortal things
Will disappear.

Instead,
I’m a unique
Immortal soul –

Always
And forever
Part of you.

Beyond all beauty

Let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us (Psalm 90:17; KJV).

God is light (1 John 1:5; NIV).

Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his ways! (Romans 11:33; NLT).

The Spirit is truth (1 John 5:6; NKJV).

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

 

Lord,
You’re beyond all beauty –
We can’t glimpse you;

Please open our eyes,
So we may see your light.

Lord,
You’re beyond all wisdom –
We can’t grasp you;

Please open our minds,
So we may hear your truth.

The narrow way

You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate […] The gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it (Matthew 7:13-14; NLT).

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

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

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

 

Lord,
Show me the narrow way
To find your Kingdom –

Not through my flesh,
For all flesh dies at last;

Not through my mind,
For all minds fade away;

Not through my heart,
For all hearts cease to beat;

But through my soul,
Where you and I are one
For evermore.
