You understand

He forgives all my sins (Psalm 103:2; NLT).

The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need (Psalm 23:1; NLT).

Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do (Ephesians 5:1; NLT).

We will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ (Ephesians 4:15; NLT).

The Lord – who is the Spirit – makes us more and more like him (2 Corinthians 3:18; NLT).

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

Lord, you understand,
Love,
And forgive me;

There’s nothing else
I’d ask you, Lord,
To do.

Help me
To do the same,
For other people,

So I become,
Lord Christ,
Much more like you.

Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing (Luke 23:34; NLT).

Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us (Luke 11:4; NLT).

Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you (Matthew 5:44; NIV).

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

My mother,
Who is old,
Is slowly dying.

She’s never
Going to say
She’s sorry now.

Help me
To accept this,
To forgive her,

To understand,
And love her, Lord –
Somehow.

Your purpose

 

Lord God,

At last,
I understand
Your purpose –

You want us
To become Love,
Just like you.

 

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

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another (John 13:34; NIV).

Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our own image, to be like us” (Genesis 1:26; NLT).

Speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ (Ephesians 4:15; NLT).

Put on your new nature, created to be like God (Ephesians 4:24; NLT).

Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do (Ephesians 5:1; NLT).

God is love (1 John 4:16; NLT).

We shall be like him (1 John 3:2; ESV).
