we desecrate the Temple – v2

we desecrate the Temple
our bodies, God’s Spirit
with our words, our actions;
we defile the sanctuary
the dwelling place of God

we desecrate the Temple
our bodies, God’s Spirit
with our words, our actions;
we give into the flesh
our carnal, baser instincts.

Each a gift, each treasure,

As God has planned this
wonderful, amazing
sharing God’s grace and mercy
touching our hearts and minds

intentionally broken – v2


our cracked vessels shattered
intentionally broken
broken at the feet of Jesus
allowing the Spirit
to pour out of us
our jars of clay
of alabaster
rich perfume
a gift, an offering
to our Lord Jesus
broken, poured out
of our bodies, our clay

we will not fear – v2

we will not fear
the storms, the struggles
the chaos we face
in this mortal life

we are safe within the rock
the strong fortress
within the arms
of our loving God

we will not fear
the dark, the demons
we will go boldly
into the world

we are safe within the crevice
within the space
God has carved out for us
safe in God’s arms
