Earth and sky (#2 of 2 linked prayers)

There is […] one God and Father, who is over all and in all and living through all (Ephesians 4:5-6; NLT).

In earth and sky,
May I perceive your presence.

In every face,
May I behold your Son.

In every bird,
May I revere your Spirit –

For you’re in everything,
Most Holy One.

Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God (Psalm 90:2; NIV).

  • You cheer my day with this beautiful rendering of Celtic Christian meditation, thank you Ruth.
    He absolutely is in all things, Amen.

    • That’s so heart-warming to hear, Alan. I’ve been pouring out my whole mind, heart and soul into a piece of writing since yesterday, and hope to post it as a completed blog tomorrow XXXXXXX

  • God is in everything, but everything is not God. I am not correcting you, sister Ruth (I know what you meant). But there may be a reader out there who has things turned around. God is love, but love is NOT God.

    I pray you receive this in the helpful spirit in which it was intended.


    • I’m delighted by your directness and honesty, David. Keep your messages coming! It never even crossed my mind that anyone might turn this around through 180 degrees, which is a good point, it I’ve no idea how this possibility could be guarded against in any piece of writing, perhaps especially a short poem.

      NB Your magnificent comment on Alan’s blog continues to help and inspire me today. I can’t tell you how grateful I am for your words XXXXX
