If I return

Only in returning to me […] will you be saved (Isaiah 30:15; NLT).

*************************************

If I return to you, Lord,
Will you return to me?

If I believe in you, Lord,
Will you believe in me?

If I speak truth to you, Lord,
Will you speak truth to me?

If I have faith in you, Lord,
Will you have faith in me?

If I dwell in your presence,
Will you, Lord, dwell in me?

And if I say I love you,
Will you say you love me?

Hello to all readers. Today’s blog takes the form of two short pieces under the same heading, rather than one longer one:

Speak the truth in love (Ephesians 4:15; NLT).

*****************************************

1. The more we hide from others
What we truly think and feel,
The more depressed and anxious
We will be.

2. We build our prison,
Brick, by brick, by brick,
Out of all that we believe
We can’t express.

Those who never pray

They […] wouldn’t think of praying to the Lord (Psalm 14:2-4; NLT).

One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up (Luke 18:1; NLT).

Keep on seeking, and you will find (Matthew 7:7; NLT).

*********************************

Lord God,
Please bless all those
Who never pray –

Those who don’t remember you,
Or think of you;

Those who don’t believe in you,
Or long for you;

Those who don’t trust in you,
Or seek you out –

Lord God,
Please bless all those
Who never pray.

Prayer

You’re always present

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

To all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God (John 1:12; NIV).

In him we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28, NIV).

The kingdom of God is within you (Luke 17:21; NKJV).

……………………………………………………………………….

 

 

You are always present,
Here and now, Lord,

For you fill the world around me,
And within.

I needn’t seek you, yearn for you,
Or wait, Lord,

For in you I live and move,
And have my being.

I just turn to you, believe you,
And receive you, Lord,

For you fill the world around me,
And within.
