Complete

 

Our God of peace
makes us complete

by every good work
of His will

doing in us
what is well pleasing

through Jesus Christ –
be glory still.

**********

You are working in me what is pleasing in Your sight, for You are with me.

**********

“Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,”

“make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.”

Psalm 3 Selah

 

You, O Lord
are a shield for me

when the enemy
surrounds

lifting my head
and sustaining me

in You
my blessing’s found.

**********

I can pause to evaluate my situation and who You are in it, for You are with me.

**********

“Lord, how they have increased who trouble me! Many are they who rise up against me.”

“Many are they who say of me, ‘There is no help for him in God.’ “

“But You, O LORD, are a shield for me, my glory and the One who lifts up my head.”

“I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the LORD sustained me.”

“Salvation belongs to the LORD. Your blessing is upon Your people.” Selah

Former And Latter

 

If what you see
doesn’t measure up

to how things used
to be

stay brave and keep
moving on

into My greater
glory.

**********

You are with me and change what I see.

**********

” ‘Who is left among you who saw this temple in its former glory? And how do you see it now? In comparison with it, is this not in your eyes as nothing?’ “

” ‘Yet now be strong, Zerubbabel,’ says the LORD; ‘and be strong, Joshua, son of Jehozadak, the high priest; and be strong, all you people of the land,’ says the LORD, ‘and work, for I am with you,’ says the LORD of hosts.”

” ‘The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,’ says the LORD of hosts. ‘And in this place I will give peace,’ says the LORD of hosts.”

Before Him

 

You, O Lord, are in
Your holy temple

let all the earth
be still

as knowledge of
Your glory covers us

until like the sea
we’re filled.

**********

You are Lord of everything and You are with me.

**********

“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.”

“But the LORD is in His holy temple. Let all the earth keep silence before Him.”

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.”

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.

**********

“. . . 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
