With Love


Stand fast
in the faith

be brave
be strong

doing all you do
with love

the whole
day long.


You are with me so I can stand fast and love.


“Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong .”

“Let all that you do be done with love.”

Not In Vain


Be steadfast

knowing it’s
not in vain

My name.


You are with me and in what I do.


“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”

Let all things be done
for edification

all teaching, tongues
and revelations

so all who come
will be convinced

that God is here
within our midst.


You are with me so that I can bring edification.


“And then the secrets of his heart are revealed, and so, falling down on his face. He will worship God and report that God is truly among you.”

“How is it then, brethren? Whenever you come together, each of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification.”

The Greatest


Love is
the greatest

all three
rolled into one

believing, enduring

the perfect gift from
God, Spirit, Son.


You are with me and give me the gift of love.


“Love . . .bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

“And now abide faith, hope, and love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”

1 Corinthians 13:4,7,13 NKJV

Just As He Pleased


We are
the body of Christ

and members

given gifts
by the same God

for manifestation
and edifying.


You are with me and have placed me within the body of Christ with specific gifts for the profit of all.


“There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.”

“There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord.”

“And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all.”

“But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all.”

“But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased.”

The Other’s Well-Being


Let me not seek
just my own good

but think of the well being
of others

knowing what may be
okay for me

won’t always edify my
sisters and brothers.


I can put others first because You are with me.


“All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful; all things are lawful for me, but all things do not edify.”

“Let no one seek his own, but each one the other’s well-being.”

1 Corinthians 10:23,24 NKJV

By All Means


O Lord may I
In some way

relate to each one
I meet

that they might be

and in You
be reached.


I can share You with others, because You are with me.


“I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.”

“Now this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I may be partaker of it with you.”

1 Corinthians 9:22,23 NKJV

Through Whom We Live


For us there is only
one God

the Father of whom all
things are

and one Lord Jesus
through whom we live

our Light and Morning


You are with me and I live through You.


“. . . yet for us there is only one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live.”

Let me glorify You
in my body

and in my spirit
for I am Yours

having been washed
and sanctified by You

justified in the name
of my Lord.


You are with me and are glorified in me.


“Do you not know that the unrighteousness will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived.”

“And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.”

“For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and your spirit, which are God’s.”

As Unleavened Bread


Lord let me live my life
as the unleavened bread

of sincerity
and truth

knowing a little leaven
leavens the whole lump

and doesn’t bring glory
to You.


You are with me as Christ the Passover, my sacrifice.


“Your glorying isn’t good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump?”

“Therefore purge out the old leaven that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us.”

“Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.”
