Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
A Temple of Truth
Her prayer’s passion is not to be
a whitewashed tomb that others see
nor a temporal temple that’s fading fast
or a clapboard chapel not made to last
The sinner’s song that she doth sing
is Amazing Grace before her King
Her heart’s altar is washed with red –
the color that her dear Savior bled
Her deepest desire is that she’d grow
so like her Lord that it would show
within her eyes and upon her lips
to draw others nigh his precious gift
Not a closed down church with empty pews
But a heart overflowing with Good News
To any and all that are brought her way
that she’d be a temple of his Spirit each day.
I’m not very good at attending church in a stoic fashion.
My eyes tend to well up with tears during praise and worship time,
and my cheeks burn with guilt when a sermon touches my heart.
It is so hard not to shout out with joy when I remember that I am saved
and that He has no plans of abandoning the project he’s begun in me.
My life before walking with Christ was, to put it bluntly–stupid.
Faith is real and personal to me.
I didn’t inherit it from my non-church parents.
It’s not a game.
I’m in it for keeps and have lost some old friends
and have been abandoned by some family members.
Jesus is my all in all.
I love much, because I’ve been forgiven much.

Dear Living Lord,
I have no regrets to have lost my old life and, now, to be found in You.
My heart beats because of your healing hand upon me.
Shine through the cracks of my old shattered life
and be glorified in this temple of your making.
Love from one alive in You.
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live,
but Christ lives in me.
The life I live in the body,
I live by faith in the Son of God,
who loved me and gave himself for me.
No parking in the past ~ because you’ll be towed away by discouragement.
