Day 12: In Spirit Breath Resurrected

Welcome to Day 12 of 31 Days of Healing Leaves: Awaking Us All to the Glory of God in our Midst

In honor of my driving instructor in this foreign country I call home, who listened and humbly responded to my request for more encouragement. Praise God for exposing my weakness, leading me to fast and humbling me to seek His help and to receive His Word fitly spoken through my driving instructor. Praise God for giving us Jesus – our hope of glory – and His resurrection life transforming us from glory to glory, by His grace that is all-sufficient for us all.

1 Corinthians 1:27-31
But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are,so that no one may boast before him. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.” 


In Spirit Breath Resurrected

Mature
Our faith
Oh LORD
Humble us

To see
You are
He who
Commands

These winds
And these
Waves
To be still

That in these
Fears too
We can
Trust You

Still, we can
Confide
In You:
Our heart

Unburdening
To find
Your Word
Fitly spoken

Lifting
Our weary
Discouraged
Hearts

To beat
In tune
With Yours
Again

As You
Stretch
Our hearts
Wide open

To run
In the path
Of Your
Commands

To taste
Glorious unity
At the foot
Of the Cross

Not to be put
To shame
But to rise with
Fresh hope

To shine
In the light
Of Your Word
Here fulfilled

In our body
Your Body
Now in Christ
In Spirit breath

Resurrected.

Acts 4:13 ESV
Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they were astonished. And they recognized that they had been with Jesus. 

John 6:63 ESV
It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.
