The Pieces of My Life

“At each and every sunrise you will hear my voice as I prepare my sacrifice of prayer to you. Every morning I lay out the pieces of my life on the altar and wait for your fire to fall upon my heart.” Psalms 5:3 TPT

The pieces of my life I bring
To You my God as an offering
I lay them on Your altar of love
And wait for Your fire to fall upon my heart

The fire of Your Presence consumes all the dross
All my sins and failings turned to ash
The gold of Jesus holy life
Purified in me, His glory revealed

The fire of Your Presence fills my new heart
With Your passionate love to receive and impart
Being wrapped and filled with Your love, eternally
Empowers me to love others as You have loved me

From the fire of Your indwelling Presence
You speak to me, bringing peace, joy and gladness
My heart and soul rejoice in Your Essence
You are life and love, joy and transcendence

From the broken pieces of my life
You build a glorious holy temple
All I thought was lost, destroyed or broken
The fire of Your Presence restores, healed and holy!

All the grief and losses I have experienced
All the pain and trials of this life’s journey
Are consumed in the fire of Your Presence
As I’m blessed by Your Presence in me overflowing

The depth of Your honour in loving me
In accepting the sacrifice I bring
Pierce’s through every part of my being
Brining joy and hope, love and healing

In the flame of Your love I rejoice and sing
That You delight in accepting my offering
Filling my heart with the fire of Your Presence
Making me Your temple and holy dwelling place!

Temple

“For indeed, we are the temple of the living God, just as God has said: I will make my home in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they will be my people.”
2 Corinthians 6:16 TPT

I praise and thank You Papa God
For You have made my body Your temple
Your holy dwelling place
You have filled me with Your glory
The fullness of Your love and grace

In my heart is Your holy of Holies
Where the fire of Your Presence burns
All that I am, I offer there to You
And You purify me with Jesus’ sacrifice

All that is broken, unclean and unholy
Is consumed by the passion of Your love
I’m cleansed, purified, restored and completed
Resurrected, reborn, filled with Jesus’ life

All that is not of You is consumed
Destroyed in the flame of Your jealous love
The gold that is Jesus Presence in me
Is now my essence, my body, my life

I praise and thank You Papa God
For You have made my body Your temple
Your holy dwelling place
You have filled me with Your glory
The fullness of Your love and grace

Jesus prayers for me are the incense that burns
Before Your Presence day and night
A holy perfume that fills my life
With Your empowering Presence and light

Your Holy Spirit intercedes there for me
With groans and sighs from the depths of His heart
Expressing the depth of my need for You
Your life, Your healing and love to impart

There You raise me to Jesus throne
So I will always be by Your side
Living in Your love and glory
Forever One, eternally Jesus’ bride

I praise and thank You Papa God
For You have made my body Your temple
Your holy dwelling place
You have filled me with Your glory
The fullness of Your love and grace

You have filled me with Your glory
Heaven’s now my home as Your child
All that belongs to Jesus Your Son
You have placed in me, in my new heart

All of Jesus’ sacrifice
All of the works of His powerful life
All of His resurrection power
You have given to me – what amazing love!

Your Holy Spirit, Your Presence in power
You have joined to my spirit as one forever
You’ve sealed me as Your holy child
So that in my life Your glory shines out

I praise and thank You Papa God
For You have made my body Your temple
Your holy dwelling place
You have filled me with Your glory
The fullness of Your love and grace

Presence

“All at once their eyes were opened and they realized it was Jesus! Then suddenly, in a flash, Jesus vanished from before their eyes! Stunned, they looked at each other and said, “Why didn’t we recognize it was him? Didn’t our hearts burn with the flames of holy passion while we walked beside him? He unveiled for us such profound revelation from the Scriptures!”” Luke 24:31-32 TPT

Your Presence Lord
Ignite in us a Holy passion
You speak to our hearts
To the depth of our soul person
And we recognise that Your love
Is what we need to make us whole
And we want to remain there
By Your side forever more
To live in Your Presence
You are our love’s true goal

There are no words to express
The pure love of Your Presence
It is far more precious
Than all earthly treasures
You ignite a flame of love
A holy passion and desire
As Your Presence causes our heart
To truly come alive
And the flame of Your holiness
It purifies us

In the words that You speak
There is profound revelation
An understanding of Scripture
That defies explanation
For You share with us
Your own relationship with God
So we can know Him
Through the insights You give
And come into His Presence
Knowing we are His beloved

You fulfil our hearts’ longing
To be truly known and loved
Not for what we can do
But for who we really are
You bring out the best in us
For which we were created
Rejoicing in each of us
As God’s beloved children
In You we find where we belong
Now and for eternity

As we walk through this day Lord
Open our eyes to Your Presence
So we can see You are with us
And hear Your words of wisdom
Let Your Glory be
Our guiding light
Let Your empowering love
Our hearts fully ignite
So with all we say and do
We give all glory to You

Every Day Communion

I have handed down to you what came to me by direct revelation from the Lord himself. The same night in which he was handed over, he took bread and gave thanks. Then he distributed it to the disciples and said, “Take it and eat your fill. It is my body, which is given for you. Do this to remember me.” He did the same with the cup of wine after supper and said, “This cup seals the new covenant with my blood. Drink it—and whenever you drink this, do it to remember me.” Whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you are retelling the story, proclaiming our Lord’s death until he comes. So then, my fellow believers, when you assemble as one to share a meal.. 1 Corinthians 11:23-26, 33a TPT

Each time in the day
When I stop to eat and drink
I pause to remember
Jesus’ death for me

Saying:
This is Jesus’ body
Broken for me
You took my death Lord
To set me free to be
In Your resurrection life
For eternity

This is Jesus’ blood
Which cleanses me
From guilt and sin
Sets me completely free
To live with You at God’s right hand
For eternity

Whether alone or in community
Each time I eat and drink
I recall Jesus death for me
And Glorify Him for what He achieved

Saying:
This is Jesus’ body
Broken for me
You took my death Lord
To set me free to be
In Your resurrection life
For eternity

This is Jesus’ blood
Which cleanses me
From guilt and sin
Sets me completely free
To live with You at God’s right hand
For eternity

In each meal
Whether large or small
I celebrate Your Presence
For You are my all in all

Saying:
This is Jesus’ body
Broken for me
You took my death Lord
To set me free to be
In Your resurrection life
For eternity

This is Jesus’ blood
Which cleanses me
From guilt and sin
Sets me completely free
To live with You at God’s right hand
For eternity

You Go Before Me

Remember Your Covenant

“Yet it was our weaknesses he carried; it was our sorrows that weighed him down. And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for his own sins! But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed… the Lord laid on him the sins of us all. But it was the Lord’s good plan to crush him and cause him grief. Yet when his life is made an offering for sin, he will have many descendants. He will enjoy a long life, and the Lord’s good plan will prosper in his hands. When he sees all that is accomplished by his anguish, he will be satisfied. And because of his experience, my righteous servant will make it possible for many to be counted righteous, for he will bear all their sins.” Isaiah 53:4-6, 10-11 NLT

As Jesus was beaten
Tormented and abused
Cruelly crucified
And entered the grave
It was our weaknesses He carried
Our frailties and sorrows
Our sins and suffering
That weighed Him down

Remember Your Covenant with Jesus O Lord!
Give Him the victory He so dearly paid for!

His head was pierced by thorns
His back torn by the whip
His hands and feet nailed to the cross
His side pierced by the spear
All for our rebellion
Crushed for all our sin
The punishment that should’ve been ours
Fell in our stead, on Him

Remember Your Covenant with Jesus O Lord!
Give Him the victory He so dearly paid for!

When He was beaten
At the hands of the guards
Because He was whipped
Till He could not be recognised
It was for the joy
Of seeing us healed and whole
This was to be His Glory
As His kingdom unfolds

Remember Your Covenant with Jesus O Lord!
Give Him the victory He so dearly paid for!

Because of His offering for sin
Paid on our behalf
Because He went to the grave
And rose again to new life
He made the way
For us all to be God’s child
To be His descendants
Live forever in His Life

Remember Your Covenant with Jesus O Lord!
Give Him the victory He so dearly paid for!

It is Your good plan O God
That we should all be righteous
Not because of what we’ve done
But because of His sacrifice
Give Jesus satisfaction
Prosper all that is in His hands
Give Him joy for all His sorrows
As His Kingdom lives in us.

Remember Your Covenant with Jesus O Lord!
Give Him the victory He so dearly paid for!

Faith

““My old identity has been co-crucified with Messiah and no longer lives; for the nails of his cross crucified me with him. And now the essence of this new life is no longer mine, for the Anointed One lives his life through me— we live in union as one! My new life is empowered by the faith of the Son of God who loves me so much that he gave himself for me, and dispenses his life into mine!” Galatians 2:20 TPT

Jesus had the faith
To be water baptised
Even though to others
It seemed superfluous
But it confirmed His standing
As God’s Beloved Son

Jesus had the faith
To go into the desert
And stay true to God
Through hunger and temptation
And reject the lies
That were satan’s deception

Jesus had the faith
To turn water into wine
And use one child’s lunch
To feed five thousand
For He knew how to call
On God’s abundant provision

Jesus had the faith
To heal the sick
And raise the dead
To life once again
For He knew how to draw on
God’s heavenly kingdom

Jesus had the faith
To calm violent storms
And cast out demons
From the most possessed ones
For He knew His authority
As one of God’s Sons

Jesus had the faith
To free sinners from sin
To announce their forgiveness
Bring them home to God again
For He lived God’s love
As God’s Spirit filled Him

Jesus had the faith
To reject faithless religion
The reliance on rules
And performance restriction
For He knew God’s love
And His power to bring freedom

Jesus had the faith
To bear our accusations
To take on our guilt
To receive our beating
For He knew by His stripes
He could bring us healing

Jesus had the faith
To die our death in the cross
To take the full burden
Of our separation from God
For the joy of seeing
Us made into His siblings

Jesus had the faith
To rise from the dead
And take up His place
As King by God’s side
To rule heaven and earth
With God’s law of love

Jesus had the faith
To become One with us
To share all His power
And all that He is
To make us God’s children
His co-rulers and co-heirs

It’s His faith that I draw on
Through trials and temptations
To stay true to God
In all situations
Empowered by God’s grace
And filled with His Spirit

It’s His faith that I draw on
To live Him each day
To live His kingdom’s rule
To embrace His love’s way
To know I’m by God’s side
Each and every day
