Dwelling in darkness

Clouds and thick darkness surround him
(Psalm 97:2; NIV).

Dwelling in darkness,
Concealed from our sight,
Yet shining forever:
Our God, who is light.

Vast, unapproachable,
Our heart’s desire,
Yet blazing within us:
Our God, who is fire.

Knowing our secrets,
Beyond human proof,
Yet speaking so clearly:
Our God, who is truth.

Mighty, alert,
Seeing all without cease,
Yet curbing his anger:
Our God, who is peace.

Yielding his Spirit,
His body and blood,
Yet reigning with mercy:
Our God, who is love.

God is love
(1 John 4:16; NLT).

  • Our Mighty God who is all things Good and Holy, cares for us and leads the way.
    1 John 4:16 “God is love” is very precious to me, reminding me of my Brethren roots.

    • Yes, this is a foundational verse for me as well, Keith. There are only 5 verses of this type in the Bible (I could list them with references, if you wish). Their truth and simplicity enable me to hold fast to my Christian faith. xxxxxxx
