Inner space

Christ lives within you
(Romans 8:10; NLT).

1. My inner space
Is a shining shore,
Where Jesus listens
While I pray.

2. My inner space
Is a forest path,
Where I can talk with him
Each day.

3. My inner space
Is a mountainside,
Where Jesus helps me
Face each test.

4. My inner space
Is a desert cave,
Where I can sit with him
To rest.

When you pray, go away by yourself,
shut the door behind you,
and pray to your Father in private
(Matthew 6:6; NLT).

    • Ha! That’s not what I was aiming to express, Alan, but of course each person brings their own interpretation to their reading. With the four metaphors I used, I was trying to show that this is what my inner space feels like, and what I experience whilst I am there, with Christ, within myself XXXXX
