Everlasting arms

The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms (Deuteronomy 33:27; NIV).

Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me (Psalm 23:4; KJV).

Lord,

Underneath us
Are your everlasting arms,

Which do not take away
Our pain and suffering,

But help us throughout life,
And through our death.

Those who never pray

They […] wouldn’t think of praying to the Lord (Psalm 14:2-4; NLT).

One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up (Luke 18:1; NLT).

Keep on seeking, and you will find (Matthew 7:7; NLT).

*********************************

Lord God,
Please bless all those
Who never pray –

Those who don’t remember you,
Or think of you;

Those who don’t believe in you,
Or long for you;

Those who don’t trust in you,
Or seek you out –

Lord God,
Please bless all those
Who never pray.

Part of you

How frail is humanity! How short life is! (Job 14:1; NLT).

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).

*****************************

My body, mind and heart
Belong to you, Lord –

Though clearly they are fragile,
Mortal, finite.

Yet my soul belongs to you
For evermore, Lord –

For it’s a holy and immortal
Part of you.
