Romans 8:11

If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also through his Spirit that dwells in you.

Breathing Life

It only takes only a moment to resuscitate the heart. A word, a glance, a second of seeing the Love Who Is streams heaven’s breath into human hearts.

The Spirit is breath, the breath of Love, the breath of Life, the breath of hope that what the heart most needs is not a dream but real and here and now.

When Love breathes the heart lifts, weightless and able to fly again, filled with gratitude for the Life of God that raises mortal flesh to life, not just then but in every moment of knowing.

Love’s single work is raising the dead, breathing the Life Who Is into the lives we are.

And all this that we may breathe Love and Life into each other … in a word, a glance, in moments of truly blessing each other for no other reason than the sheer joy of it.

We are vessels of Love’s Immortal breath. There is no higher dignity, no greater call.

Pr. David L. Miller

 Ephesians 5:8-9

For once you were darkness, but now in the Lord you are light. Live as children of light— for the fruit of the light is found in all that is good and right and true. 

Bright morning star

You are the bright morning star that wakes me once more and wipes the sleep from my eyes.

You wake my soul, and again I know the Light that shines every morning and through the day, lighting even the darkness night with the light of Love you are, always there, without fail, anew every morning.

And you say, ‘You are light, lit by the unfailing Love I am … alive in you.’

Lit from within, I see you in children’s smiles and hear your crystal voice in song that fills my heart and lifts me into the great knowing.

This is the knowing for which we each are born, a knowing that comes only when you flood the heart with the light of the Love you are.

Filled with Light and Love, we know ourselves as for the first time, created vessels intended to be lit from within by the fire only Love ignites. Created, we are, to live the Light that shines from our eyes as we know … You.

Pr. David L. Miller
