To God Be The Glory ~

Lord, I want to bring You glory,
I want to do right by You . . .
I want the light of salvation
in my life to shine through.

I want to be the salt,
the flavor of Your grace
I want my soul to reflect
the wonder of Your face.

I want to move mountains,
to part the ocean wave
I want to be Your soldier
for You, Your Gospel slave.

I want to taste Your manna,
sip the nectar off Your vine
I want to be Your branch
I want our lives to intertwine.

I want to be Your vessel,
the clay upon Your wheel
I want to see Your image,
to know Your godly will.

Lord, I want to bring You glory,
I want to sing to You my praise . . .
I want the world to know
that for You my heart’s ablaze!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 60:1-2

“Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the
glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. For,
behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
and gross darkness the people: but the
Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory
shall be seen upon thee.”

A Willing Living Sacrifice ~

wearelight used with permission IBible Verses
Father, I give unto You,
this body You gave to me
my heart, my mind, my soul
so, I can learn to be . . .

A holy, living sacrifice,
to heed to Your good will
an open, willing vessel
to offer You my skill.

A light unto the world,
to shine in the darkness
a tiny grain of salt
to rid it of its harshness.

A voice in the wilderness,
to those who are lost
a witness to salvation
bringing glory to the cross.

A tiny mustard seed,
to spread the Gospel Word
a branch on the True Vine
to feed Your hungry herd.

Father, grant me Your mercies,
I need each and every one
if I am to be of Your service
and lead others to Your Son!

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 12:1
King James Version

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God,
that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy,
acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.”

Getting Me a Trim!

Branches by Terry Lane free photo #18423

I’m being pruned to be,
a whole lot more like Him
God is cutting away
each fruitless, useless limb.

He’s sniping at my pride,
my smugness and my ego
so His life in mine . . .
will finally start to show.

He’s trimming each branch,
until their shaped and formed
He isn’t going to stop until
in Him I am transformed.

He’s cutting out the dead wood,
striping back what is loathed
until each new branch
in Him is fully clothed.

Although at first it hurts,
all this cutting and trimming
I know that one day to Him
I’m going to look amazing.

I’m being cut and snipped,
God’s pruning me limb by limb
until I resemble someone . . .
who looks a whole lot like Him!

John 15:2
King James Version

“Every branch in me that beareth
not fruit he taketh away:

and every branch that
beareth fruit, he purgeth it

that it may bring
forth more fruit.”
