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.

Help me to seek you

When you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private (Matthew 6:6; NLT).

Clouds and thick darkness surround him (Psalm 97:2; NIV).

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him (Psalm 37:7; NIV).

Be silent before the Sovereign Lord (Zephaniah 1:7; NIV).

If only you would listen to his voice today! (Psalm 95:7; NLT).

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

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

 

Lord,

Help me to seek you
In solitude,

Search for you
In darkness,

Wait for you
In stillness,

And listen for your voice
In silence,

So I may find you –
Deep within my soul.

When we don’t seek you

There are so many references for this short prayer that I’ve included them underneath it.

 

Lord,
When we don’t seek you
In our souls,
We lose our chance
To live at one with you.

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.
