Convicting Spirit —-Valley of Vision

Posted: August 4, 2008 in Devotional, General Discussion, Theology

Thou blessed Spirit, Author of all grace and comfort,

Come, work repentance in my soul;

       Represent sin to me in its odious colours that I may hate it;

Melt my heart by the majesty and mercy of God;

Show me my ruined self and the help there is

   in him;

Teach me to behold my Creator,

   his ability to save,

   his arms outstretched,

   his heart big for me.

May I confide in his power and love,

   commit my soul to him without reserve,

   bear his image, observe his laws,

     pursue his service,

   and be through time and eternity

     a monument to the efficacy of his grace,

     a trophy of his victory.

Make me willing to be saved in his way,

   perceiving nothing in myself, but all in Jesus:

Help me not only to receive him but

   to walk in him,

   depend upon him,

   commune with him,

   be conformed to him,

   follow him,

     imperfect, but still pressing forward,

     not complaining of labour, but valuing rest,

     not murmuring under trials, but thankful

       for my state.

Give me that faith which is the means of salvation,

   and the principle and medium of all godliness;

May I be saved by grace through faith,

   live by faith,

   feel the joy of faith,

   do the work of faith.

Perceiving nothing in myself, may I find in Christ

   wisdom, righteousness, sanctification,

     redemption.

    LOL! Where do I get an application?

    NO! Where do I go to get an app.

    Ha…I’m checking for BOTH of you… I think the posting came down internally which means they’ll start looking outside the plant 🙂 …

    The downside? Accounting is the WINDOW OFFICES (I should be so lucky) so there’s not a whole lot of wall space to put up all your favorite songs and quotes.

    But you could ALWAYS come down and hang stuff in my desk area!
