From the Lord, the Spirit

light in heart“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.  And all of us, with unveiled faces, seeing the glory of the Lord as though reflected in a mirror, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord, the Spirit.”

2 Corinthians 3: 17-18

Prayer of Confession

prayer drawingIf we confess our sins, he who is faithful and just will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.   1 John 1:9

Say this prayer, meditate on the times you fall short, believe your sins will be forgiven, and ask God to change your heart:

God of majesty and might, I imagine the face of Moses on your mountain, shining with the radiance of your glory; I pretend that I would not look away in fear or feel relieved when he shields my eyes from the effects of your power; I imagine being commended for my courage in the face of your splendor, but I know better.

I long to be invited to like Peter, James, and John to witness Christ’s glory, but I secretly suspect that I, too, would be weighed down with sleep, or feel the need to speak when I should be listening. Test my heart, God. Call me to climb your mountain that I might face my fears and prove myself worthy of your holy calling. Amen

Climb the Mountain of God to See His Glory

To God be the Glory
Climb with Moses up the Mountain of God.
God’s glory shines like the sun.
Climb with Jesus up the Mountain of God.
God’s glory shines like the sun.
Climb with the faithful up the Mountain of God.
The Spirit’s glory shines like the sun.
Climb the Mountain of God.
Come, and see God’s glory!

Lord, Take Away my Spiritual Blindness So I May See the Suffering”

FaithJesus heard that they had driven him out, and when he found him, he said, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?” He answered, “And who is he, sir? Tell me, so that I may believe in him.”  Jesus said to him, “You have seen him, and the one speaking with you is he.”  He said, “Lord, I believe.” And he worshiped him.  Jesus said, “I came into this world for judgment so that those who do not see may see, and those who do see may become blind.”

John 9: 35-39

Our Help is in the Name of the Lord

“Blessed be the Lord,
    who has not given us
    as prey to their teeth.
We have escaped like a bird
    from the snare of the fowlers;
the snare is broken,
    and we have escaped.

 Our help is in the name of the Lord,
    who made heaven and earth.”

Psalm 124: 6-8

How is the Lord helping you?
How can you help someone else?

My Help Comes from the Lord

uplifting arms“I lift up my eyes to the hills—
    from where will my help come?
 My help comes from the Lord,
    who made heaven and earth.

 He will not let your foot be moved;
    he who keeps you will not slumber.
 He who keeps Israel
    will neither slumber nor sleep.


The Lord is your keeper;

    the Lord is your shade at your right hand.
 The sun shall not strike you by day,
    nor the moon by night.

 The Lord will keep you from all evil;
    he will keep your life.
The Lord will keep
    your going out and your coming in
    from this time on and forevermore.”

Psalm 121
