Inside Out

“Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time.”  Colossians 4:5

So thankful for Sue Miller, my aerobics and exercise teacher, who invited me in from the outside!

Lord, we desire to make the most of our time with others today, knowing how much You love them.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Living Out

Once on the outside                         
then invited in
running to give
everything to Him.

Now on the inside
but asked to live out
His mercy and grace
as I walk about.

Mind Set

“Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.”  Colossians 3:2

I’m thinking “choose the higher road” over “so heavenly minded they’re of no earthly good.”

Oh Lord, may the gravity of this world not pull our thoughts down from where You designed them to be.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Defying Gravity

Going to set my thoughts up above
all the rubble lying around

that which can be thrown at me
to knock me out and keep me down

and with my thoughts up higher
where there’s clean air and space

they’ll have a chance to grow in truth
to fuel my prayers and faith.

“You Are Complete In Him”

“Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the  basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.

For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily, and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.”   Colossians 2:8-10

I’ve heard about how accessories can complete a look.

Lord, thank You for completing us!  And here’s a simple poem . . .

All the Fullness

We are complete in You                                                                       
for that is what You do
coming to us who are unfinished
and filling us with truth.

We are complete in You
it’s not something we can do
for nothing else can fill us
but the fullness of You.

Preeminence

“And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the first born from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.”  Colossians 1:18

Someone has to go first.

Thank You, Jesus, for being our Line Leader, our Preeminent One!  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Our Preeminent One                                            

You are
above everything
and in everything
You are
our first born
full of glory
our preeminent
Shining Star.

 

I forgot to mention that we finished 1 Chronicles and get to
go back to the New Testament for Colossians! 🙂 Only, it’s
really short!
