Est Deus in Nobis

Speak to us Father, that we might learn from You.
If we hearken unto your voice, You will guide us too.
When Your Spirit entered us we changed forevermore.
We wake each morning, eager to know what is in store.
Sensing that You are inside us changes our perspective.
Please take these vessels Lord, for You are our directive.
If we could but realize what power we have inside ourselves.
We would walk and speak with boldness; the Spirit compels.
Est deus in nobis ~ THE GOD INSIDE US

Refiner's Fire

God refines us with afflictions,
Thus trials and tribulations,
The heart of which separates
Impurities, needless detritus.
Which can be explained as
Un-forgiveness and anger,
Jealousy and resentment,
Those past lingering hurts.
Allow the character of God,
Purity, holiness, acceptance,
To grow and live in our lives,
So the only reason Christian,
To review your past iniquities
And those hurts before Christ
Is to bring you once again
To the cross of Jesus Christ,
Asking Him for forgiveness,
And praising Him for trials.

THOUGHT: Holding on to an offense of un-forgiveness is like holding a debt against someone.

ROMANS; 12:17: Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men.

You Saw Me

In a regressed condition, You saw me.
I aspired to hide my pain from you,
For the person that I had become
Was not the child that you adopted.
Now, this child was broken, obdurate.
Changed from love and gentleness.
Alive with grievous hurt and chagrin.
But your Spirit came and ministered.
Soothed my rambling and judgments.
And opened up my heart once again,
As a surgeon would correct a defect.
You were aware of my sore heartache..
Easing all my worries, my low esteem.
And You lifted me up, holding me again.
And the miracle of healing began to occur.
All because You saw me and You knew..
