Glory Center – July 2021
There are two views in our world, often competing with each other to grab our attention & direct our lives. One sees death, & the other sees life. One sees hopelessness, & the other sees hope. One sees brokenness & the other sees healing & wholeness. Once sees life’s circumstances through our limited human vision & the other sees life through God’s eyes. When you see life through God’s eyes everything changes, even in times of suffering, as you take in the very breath of God, your dead bones will come to life, & the beauty of life will return as you come alive in the Spirit of God.
“The hand of the Lord came upon me, & He brought me out by the Holy Spirit of the Lord & set me down in the middle of the valley: it was full of bones. He led me around them; there were many laying in the valley; & they were very dry. He said to me; ‘Mortal, can these bones live?’ I answered, ‘O Lord God, you know.’ Then He said to me, ‘Prophesy to these bones, & say to them; O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord. Thus says the Lord God to these bones; I will cause breath to enter you & will cause flesh to come upon you & cover you with skin, & put breath in you, & you shall live, & you shall know that I am the Lord.”
“Breathe on Me, Breath of God"
Breathe on me, Breathe of God, fill me with life anew, that I may love what thou dost love, & do what thou wouldst do.
Breathe on me Breathe of God, until my heart is pure, until with thee I will one will, to do & to endure.
Breath on me Breathe of God, so shall I never die, but live with thee the perfect life of thine eternity.”
