Love and consolation

Lord,

May I still 
My busy mind,

Creating time and space
For contemplation.

Then I will hear 
Your quiet voice,

Expressing all your love 
And consolation.

Prayer

Enough

Greetings to all readers. Today’s blog is a simple, perhaps almost desperate, affirmation of trust – a prayer that clings to God, although all else seems lost, and even God himself seems absent. I have had plenty of times like this in my life, and I’m sure there will be more to come. My guess is that some of you will have experienced this, too…

Enough

* Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us (John 14:8; NIV).
* Are God’s consolations not enough for you, words spoken gently to you? (Job 15:11; NIV).

Father,
No matter how far away you seem,
I know you love me,
And will never leave me.

No matter how distant I feel from you,
I know you love me,
And will never leave me.

And no matter how dark my world seems,
I know you love me,
And will never leave me.

Lord, I have placed my faith in you.
I believe in you,
Trust in you,
And know you are with me.

It is enough.

In Jesus holy name,
Amen.
