All the planting that's going on at my house has got me thinking about the kind of growing I want to do, too. When those mittens bloom, I want to display a few blossoms of beauty of my own...
A Display of His Splendor
Bury me, sweet Lord, in you.
Sink my roots in what is true.
Rain your word upon my heart.
Penetrate my deepest part.
With living water, soak my soul.
Restore my strength, Lord, make me whole.
Prune me with your loving hand
So firmly through the storms I’ll stand.
In times of drought or times of flood,
Protect me with the Savior’s blood.
Grow me, Father, as you please.
Make me blossom on my knees.
Cultivate your love in me
So all who watch me bloom will see
Your radiant beauty flowing through
This heart that longs to be like you.
And may all the glory be your gain
As I bear fruit in Jesus name.
Then when your work in me is done,
May I bear likeness to your Son.
So in your book, I’ll be remembered
As a display of your great splendor.
Today's Treasure: “…They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor.”
