My perfect God

Your Father in heaven is perfect (Matthew 5:48; NLT).

I am a sinner (Luke 18:12; NLT).

God is greater than any human being (Job 33:12; NLT).

My beloved is mine and I am his (Song of Songs 2:16; NIV).


You are my perfect God,
And I am only
A sinful human being –
Yet how we love each other!

Nothing at all

Your love for me is very great (Psalm 86:13; NLT).

You will grow as you learn to know God better and better (Colossians 1:10; NLT).

I love you, Lord (Psalm 18:1; NLT).

I am nothing at all (2 Corinthians 12:11; NLT).


If I had
All the riches
Of the earth,
But did not have
Your love,
I would have
Nothing at all.

And if I had
All the knowledge
In the world,
Yet did not
Know you,
I would know
Nothing at all.

And if I had health,
And strength,
Yet did not
Love you,
I would be
Nothing at all.


You never stop loving us

He loves us with unfailing love (Psalm 117:2; NLT).

The Lord looks down from heaven on all mankind to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. All have turned away, all have become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even oneĀ (Psalm 14:2-3; NIV).


You never stop loving us,
No matter what we do,
Though you grieve
Over our ignorance,
And hatred.

Peace, be still

Wait patiently (Psalm 37:7; NLT).

Their hearts are troubled like a wild sea in a raging storm (Jeremiah 49:23; NLT).

He displays his power in the whirlwind and the storm (Nahum 1:3; NLT).

As my glorious presence passes by, I will hide you in the crevice of the rock and cover you with my hand (Exodus 33:22; NLT).

Peace, be still (Mark 4:39; KJV).


Please help me
To wait patiently
While this storm
Passes by,
As I repeat
Your words, Lord –
Peace, be still.
