May I see you

Artwork by Gabriel Woodman

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

1. May I see you, Lord, in all;
May they glimpse you in me.

2. May I hear you, Lord, in all;
May they sense you in me.

3. May I serve you, Lord, in all;
May they find you in me.

4. May I love you, Lord, in all;
May they know you in me.

Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them.
(Romans 12:9; NLT).

  • A great thought Ruth; seek Jesus in us not just for own benefits, but to reach others with His Love.
    How are you coping in this damp Autumn weather?

    • I’m so glad you liked this blog, Alan. It’s going to be a stormy night here, and my family is staying next door, so we’ve had to move our cars. The sea comes over the wall, lifting stones in the waves, and dashing them on to any parked cars left at risk, which can do a lot of damage. Lots of hospital stuff coming up for me from tomorrow, so no choice about going out. How are you and Susan? XXXXX

      • A wee bit of cold floating around the house again, “sniff!”😁
        Sadly though it’s my nephew’s funeral tomorrow, which we are not looking forward to since that end of the family are unbelievers in a big way.

      • Hello, Alan, I’m so sorry about your colds, but even more so about your nephew’s funeral. May God use you both to help and comfort his family, especially given their lack of faith. This will be a truly dreadful occasion for them. With love from Ruth xxxx

      • Good morning, Alan. May you shine with the presence of Christ himself at your nephew’s funeral today, bringing comfort, hope and light to all his family. May your presence be a blessing to everyone there, for God brings good out of everything, even death.
        With love from Ruth XXXXX
