Unveiled

 

All praise to God
for He has taken

away the veil
so we can see

and be transformed
by the Spirit

into who He made us
to truly be.

**********

I am being transformed day by day, for You are with me.

**********

“Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.”

“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”

“But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.”

2 Corinthians 3:16-18 NKJV

Glory In The Lord

 

In Your presence
there can be no glory
of anything of
the flesh

for its You
who give me wisdom
redemption and
righteousness.

**********

You are with me and are my glory.

**********

“For you see your calling brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called.”

“. . . that no flesh should glory in His presence.”

“But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God – and righteousness and sanctification and redemption -“

“that, as it is written, ‘He who glories, let him glory in the LORD.’ “

1 Corinthians 1:26,29,30,31  NKJV   /    Jeremiah 9:34  NKJV

No Compare

 

The sufferings of
this present time
won’t be worthy
to compare

with the glory
revealed in us
through Jesus, our hope
our prayer.

**********

The glory of You with me far outweighs my sufferings.

**********

“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”

Romans 8:18 NKJV

Rejoice In Hope

 

Before I
was even born

my Jesus died
for me

so I can know
how much I’m loved

having the hope of His
glory.

**********

You are with me and give me hope.

**********

“Therefore having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”

“But God demonstrates HIs own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Peace On Earth

 

The armies of heaven
sing praises

the sky fills up
with song

glory to God
in the highest

here’s the Peace for which
you long.

*********

You establish Christmas.

**********

“The Savior – yes, Messiah, the Lord – has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! And you will recognize Him by this sign: You will find a baby wrapped snugly in strips of cloth, lying in a manger.”

“Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of others – the armies of heaven – praising God and saying, “

‘Glory to God in highest heaven,
and peace on earth to those with whom God
is pleased.’ . . .

“(The shepherds) hurried to the village and found Mary and Joseph. And there was the baby, lying in the manger. After seeing Him, the shepherds told everyone what had happened and what the angel had said to them about this child. All who heard the shepherd’s story were astonished, but Mary kept all these things in her heart and thought about them often.”

Luke 2:11-19

The Glory Of The Lord

 

The brightness
of My glory

filled the temple
courts and house

now I am
inside of you

so you can shine Me
all about.

You establish the brightness of Your glory.

“Then the glory of the LORD went up from the cherub and paused over the threshold of the temple; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the LORD’s glory.” Ezekiel 10:4 NKJV
