Morning Dedication - That I may See All things In the Mirror of Eternity--

 29.11.11

ALMIGHTY GOD,
As I cross the threshold of this day
I commit myself, soul, body, affairs, friends, to thy care;
Watch over, keep, guide, direct, sanctify, bless me.
Incline my heart to thy ways;
Mould me wholly into the image of Jesus, as a potter form clay;
May my lips be a well tuned harp to sound thy praise;
Let those around see me living by the Spirit,
                                        trampling the world underfoot,
                                        unconformed to lying vanities,
                                        transformed by a renewed mind,
                                        clad in the entire armour of God,
                                        shinning as a never-dimmed light,
                                        showing holiness in all my doings.

Let no evil this day soil my thoughts, words, hands.
May i travel miry paths with a life pure from spot or stain.
In needful transactions let my affection be in heaven,
     and my love soar upwards in flames of fire,
     my gaze fixed on unseen things,
     my eyes open to the emptiness, fragility,
        mockery of earth and its vanities.

May I view all things in the mirror of eternity,
     waiting for the coming of my Lord,
     listening for the last trumpet call,
     hastening unto the new heaven and earth.

Order this day all my communications according to thy wisdom,
and to gain of mutual good.

Forbid that I should not be profited or made profitable.

May I speak each word as if my last word,
     and walk each step as my final one.

If my life should end today, let this be my best day.

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
