Look for the Father

✝️

1. Look for the Father
Who dwells deep within,
Stirring our hearts
To repent of our sin.

2. Seek the Messiah
Who comes from above,
Sharing our anguish,
Outpouring his love.

3. Search for the Spirit
Who falls from on high,
Comforting everyone,
Hearing each sigh.

4. Turn to the Godhead
Who lives in us all –
Ask his forgiveness,
And welcome his call.

  • The Godhead, a cord of three in one holding us secure each day in all lifes trials. Hallelujah for His compassion and provision for us. Thank you again for such an encouraging meditation Ruth.

  • Well done, sister Ruth. I love the reference from Colossians 3, “Christ is all that matters, and He lives in all of us.” The world would have us believe that lots of other things matter more than Christ, but the Bible disagrees. We have been given fullness in Him, who is the head over every power and authority. (Colossians 2:9). God is a one stop shop! Blessings.

  • Ruth, this struck me as being a meditative prayer that is fitting for anyone/everyone. God has given you a gift. Keep sharing it with others. May you have a blessed day.

    • You are SO encouraging, Manette, and I’m really grateful for your kind words. I’m not at all well, and there have been a couple of times very recently when I’ve felt as if I just can’t go on writing every day in the way that I do. Sometimes, too, so few people look at the prayers that I wonder what the point of so much hard work is, which is very discouraging. But every day I pray that just one person will be helped, though I won’t know who they are, so I go on. May God bless you for your support. With love from Ruth XXXX
