Day 111 | Wednesday, 8 July 2020
I want to continue the theme of personal holiness. I believe our personal journey is one that happens each and every day. Once Jesus found us and made entrance into our lives, that is not the end, it is the beginning. I know some folks who will tell you the date that Jesus found them, and they have not done any growing since then. That date was the end for them, nothing further was needed. How unfortunate for their faith journey.
Edwin Hatch, 1878 wrote a hymn based on John 20:22 titled Breathe on Me, Breath of God
John 20:22 22 Then he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.
“Lord, I want to be more holy in my heart.
Here is the citadel of all my desiring,
where my hopes are born
and all the deep resolutions of my spirit take wings.
In this center, my fears are nourished,
and all my hates are nurtured.
Here my loves are cherished,
and all the deep hungers of my spirit are honored
without quivering and without shock.
In my heart, above all else,
let love and integrity envelop me
until my love is perfected and the last vestige
of my desiring is no longer in conflict with thy Spirit.
Lord, I want to be more holy in my heart. Amen”
Lord, let these songs and prayer by our prayer today. Hear us.
Today: for the breath of God to fill those who are becoming physically tired of treating COVID.
SEE YOU AT NOON
