I wonder what would happen in our lives if we stopped resisting God’s love and started receiving it.  What if we stopped trying to do the math, stopped striving to earn His favor? What if we just accepted the altogether-too-good-to-be-true news that the yardstick has been broken and the Cross has opened a door to intimacy with our Maker?
For if we are ever to be His beloved, we must be willing to be loved.

Humble Offering

Holy Spirit Breathe in me…

Come fill my heart

Light the fire of your love in my soul

Send forth your inspiration

Create In me something new

Take my art and let it be

A humble Offering of praise

Enlighten me to perceive your mysteries

Guide me to the fountain of delight

Strengthen me for the journey

Awaken me to be all you created me to be

Thank you for the many blessings

And creative gifts you have given me

May I honor you in all I do…

Holy Spirit Breathe in me…
