Contemplation

Contemplation 

*Samuel answered, “Here I am” (1 Samuel 3:4; NIV).
*My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, LORD, I will seek (Psalm 27;8; NIV).
*Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him (Psalm 37:7; NIV).
*He says, “Be still, and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10; NIV).
* Be silent before the Sovereign LORD (Zephaniah 1:7; NIV).
* None can compare with you (Psalm 40:5; NIV).
* How great is God – beyond our understanding (Job 36:26; NIV).

Father,
Here I am,
Ready to seek your face.

Each time I breathe in,
I draw a little nearer
To your presence;

And each time I breathe out,
I set aside the thoughts distracting me 

From you alone.

Slowly,
My body becomes still,
And my mind falls silent.

Then my heart worships without words,
While my soul overflows with love.

Lord, none can compare with you.
How great you are –
Beyond my understanding.

 

I'd love to hear from you...
