The truth

You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free
(John 8:32; NLT).

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

 

Meditation doesn’t mean
Observing our thoughts dispassionately,
Then simply letting them go.

Instead, it’s an opportunity
To grasp our secret thoughts
So we can hear them –

For then
We will learn the truth
About ourselves.

Vision

They shall beat their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more (Isaiah 2:4; KJV).

They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the Lord (Isaiah 65:25; KJV).

God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16; NIV).

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

Lord,

Show us all
A vision of your light;

Reveal to us
A vision of your truth;

Please give us all
A vision of your peace;

And share with us
A vision of your love.

But, ah – you have already done
All this,

By sending us your Son,
Born here on Earth.

Hidden

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

He shrouded himself in darkness (2 Samuel 22:12; NLT).

Though he was God […] he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being (Philippians 2:6-7; NLT).

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

Your real life is hidden with Christ in God (Colossians 3:3; NLT).

The kingdom of God is within you (Luke 17:21; NKJV).

……………………………………………………………….

 

Father,
You are light,
Shrouded in darkness.

Jesus,
You are God,
Veiled in human form.

Spirit,
You are truth,
Hidden within us all.
