I want to follow you

 

Lord,
I want to follow you,

And grow more like you
Every day;

To bear my cross
Along your way,

Until I reach 
My death.

Then I will be
At one with you,

And with 
The holy Trinity,  

One union 
For infinity – 

Beyond 
My final breath.

Ponder his nativity

Ponder 
His nativity;

His mother’s
Strange virginity. 

Consider 
His humanity

Alongside 
His divinity

And oneness        
With the Trinity.

His message –  
God’s infinity.

Prayer

Today

Well, I’m rather worn today after losing so much sleep last night! Today’s prayer is a simple petition asking God to help us practice his presence throughout the day.

Today

As the eyes of slaves look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a female slave look to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the LORD our God, till he shows us his mercy (Psalm 123:2; NIV).

So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal (2 Corinthians 4:18; NIV).

Father God,
Please help me to keep my eyes 
Fixed on you throughout today.

Lord Jesus,
May I never forget your example,
Or turn away from your teaching.

Holy Spirit,
Guide my prayers for others;
Inspire me to gratitude and praise.

Blessed Trinity,
Show me your will,
And help me to carry it out. 

Amen.
