This Day (Part 4)

This day, let me be
True to my word, diligent
In my works and plans

As You are faithful to mold
Me into Your perfect work

This Day (Part 3)

This day, let me show
Compassion to those I meet
Forgetting anger

Frustrations over others'
Faults only obscures my own

This Day (Part 2)

This day, let me be
Disciplined before You, not
Serving my pleasures

Rather, living a life in
Your control, to Your glory.

This Day (Part 1)

I long to be clothed
In Your Holiness, shining
Your qualities out

Developing an inward
Change to show You to the world

This is currently part 1 of 10, I don't intend to add more parts, but it could happen. I think it will read better to separate them out, so I'll be posting one a day till it is complete.

Scary Prayers 3

Lord, bring into my
Life one: lost and seeking; You
Have filled me, I wish
To share, of Your love and joy
And grace, to introduce You.

I've not the words or
The courage, so I must ask
For Your lead and strength
It is Your work entire, I
Only long to play a part

In This Place

I entered in, burdened with hopes
And cares and fears; kneeled, I
Entered to be shut in with Him.
In this place my burdens
Are lifted as His glory fills
The room, warming me from
Without with His light, igniting
My heart and mind within
"Holy, Holy, Holy to the
Lord of Grace and Glory"

Here my hopes inspire; outside clouds
Of worry weigh heavy
For here my Hope lives, my Savior
Is not hidden, obscured
Here, hopes are not mere wishes, but
Tangible, to be sought
They come through Him, come with promise
Desires placed within me
"Holy, Holy, Holy to the
Father of my Savior"

As life moves, so my cares increase
I fret, worry, despite
Knowing He will care for me. Will
All be well? Can I be
Content? Deserving punishment
For my doubts; His Spirit
Draws me close, bringing peace, comfort,
Making God known to me
"Holy, Holy, Holy to the
Sender of my comfort"

I long to be here always, my
Mind on Him, and my heart
Near; that in His strength I would not
Cower, but temptation
Would flee and sin's condemnation
Would hold no sway. Rather,
That my life would be a vessel
To proclaim God's glory.
"Holy, Holy, Holy to the
One working within me."
