My dull mind

The Lord […] reveals his thoughts to mankind (Amos 4:13; NLT).

God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son (John 3:16; NLT).

I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one (John 17:22; NIV).

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

Lord,

May my dull mind
Be one with yours,
So I can share your thoughts
In contemplation.

May my cold heart
Be one with yours,
So I can share your love
For every person.

May my small soul,
Be one with yours,
So I can share
Your unity with all.

Conflict

I tremble in fear of you (Psalm 119:120; NLT).

I love you, Lord (Psalm 18:1; NLT).

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

Lord,
During meditation
I experience a conflict

Between fearing you –
So longing to turn back,

And loving you –
So longing to go on,

Until I dare
To lose my self,

In unity
With you.

Life beyond my death

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).

God will redeem me from the world of the dead; he will surely take me to himself (Psalm 49:15; NIV).

You have brought me into your presence forever (Psalm 41:12; NLT).

 

Lord,
Each meditation
Brings a taste
Of life beyond my death –

A little space
For union with you,
Where one day
I will dwell for evermore.

Silent bliss

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

There will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain (Revelation 21:4; NLT).

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

 

Lord,
When I sit down
To meditate, in silence,

I leave my flesh behind,
And with it, pain;

I leave my mind behind,
And with it, thought;

I leave my heart behind,
And with it, all emotion –

Except the bliss of unity
With you.

And you love me.

There is no separate

There’s only wholeness,
Unity,
And love,

For we are one.
