Reflections from 1 Peter, Isaiah 53

I Heard the Whisper

IMG_0283

Alone, I entered the garden,
where Jesus waits for me.
Alone, I sensed his presence,
the One who died for me.
Alone, I heard him whisper,
open your eyes and see.

My child I’m alive! Not dead!
Look at my scars, touch my hands.
Believe in what I said.
My body and blood was enough,
atoning sacrifice for all sin.
Those who come to the Lamb of God
need never doubt again.

“Put your finger here and look at my hands. Put your hand
into the wound in my side. 
Don’t be faithless any longer. Believe!”
John 20: 27 NLT

 

Who Am I?

Not who I am,
but Whose I am.
I belong to the great I Am,
Immortal,

Invisible,
Eternal,
Only Wise God.

Not what I’ve done,
but what He’s done.
For God so loved,
He gave grace
and forgiveness
through Jesus Christ,
Son and Savior.

Not where I live,
but where my eternal home is.
Not this is my home,
but heaven is my home;
and earth
my
dressing room. 

Not what I want,
but what He wants.
That I love Him with all my heart,
 soul,
mind,
and strength,

and my neighbor as myself.

Not what I will,
but what He wills.
Not my reflection,
but His glory…
shining through
broken places
of my life.

But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. John 1: 12,13
