June 11, Today’s thought – Jesus Only

June 4 026Berries

Good Morning

Matthew 17:1-8
And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. And, behold, here appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him. And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid. And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid.

And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only.

The world, I thought beonged to me–
Goods, gold and people, land and sea–
Where’er I walked beneath God’s sky
In those old days my word was  “I”.

Years passed; there flashed my pathway near
The fragment of a vision dear;
My former word no more sufficed,
And what I said was –“I and Christ”.

But, O, the more I looked on Him,
His glory grew, while mine grew dim,
I shrank so small, He towered so high,
All I dared say was –“Christ and I”.

Years more the vision held its place
And looked me steadily in the face;
I speak now in a humbler tone,
And what I say is –“Christ alone”.

My heart’s cry…Today…Jesus only
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
