"Inspirations"

These "inspirations"  have come as a result of my Lord's gentle teaching over the years and I am honored to share them with you. I pray that they may be a vessel through which God can touch your heart with a special blessing as you read and reflect prayerfully upon them.

May God be Glorified!

GLIMPSES OF GLORY

There are moments in life when You are more than real to me.

Your Presence fills not only my mind but my heart and my soul.

In these moments I am welcomed into Your holy inner sanctuary;
finding myself consumed ...
     in Your peace,
          in Your love,
               in Your grace,
                    and witness to Your majesty.

The floodlights of comprehension shed new light on my soul.
     I can fully know You, just as I am fully known,
          for this is Your desire and Your delight!

We speak together with voices that utter no sound,
     and I stand in complete amazement
          as Your wisdom unfolds before me.

Abiding,
     I in You ~ You in me,
          just as it was meant to be.

A precious moment where I have caught a glimpse of your Holy Glory, 
knowing that more of You would surely be too much.

With each succeeding moment as this,
     I journey fewer steps from Your holy inner room,
          longing to be graced once again by Your Presence,
               to catch yet another glimpse
                    of You, my God,
                         in all Your glory.

 Listen to 'Glimpses of Glory'

 

Ephesians 3:14-21 NAS

For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.

 

My dear friend and soul-sister in Christ, Deborah Johnson, 'heard' and then composed the song, 'Glimpses of Glory', upon reading the original poem in 1996.  Click the following link to hear our recording ....
