Spend time alone

Spend time alone
To seek God’s holy presence;

Be silent   
As you listen for his voice.  

With eyes closed
You may see his dazzling glory;

And in stillness
You may join his sacred dance. 



He [Jesus] left in a boat to a remote area to be alone (Matthew 14:13; NLT).

Be silent before the Sovereign Lord (Zephaniah 1:7; NIV).

God shines in glorious radiance (Psalm 50:2; NLT).

 Golden splendour comes from the mountain of God. He is clothed in dazzling splendour (Job 37:22; NLT).

Be still before the Lord (Psalm 37:7; NIV).

Hide and seek

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

The Lord your God is a consuming fire (Deuteronomy 4:24; NIV).

Let my words fall like rain on tender grass (Deuteronomy 32:2; NLT).

God shines in glorious radiance (Psalm 50:2; NLT).

All your waves and breakers have swept over me (Psalm 42:7; NIV).

The Lord is peace (Judges 6:24; NIV).

Now you comfort me (Isaiah 12:1; NLT).

Before you gave birth to the earth […] you are God (Psalm 90:2; NLT).


Looking for you
Is like playing
Hide and seek
In darkness,

Or leaping
Into a raging fire,
Or dancing
In gentle rain.

It’s like being dazzled
By the sun,
Or overwhelmed
By waves of love,

Or soothed
By the peace
And comfort
Of your womb.

God’s power and wisdom

Hello to every reader. Yesterday I started writing this prayer, but I’ve really struggled to express in words what I perceived, so it could still change some more… 

God’s power and wisdom
* His wisdom is profound, his power is vast (Job 9:4; NIV).
* God is light (1 John 1:5; NIV).
* For the LORD your God is a consuming fire (Deuteronomy 4:24; NIV). 
* God is love (1 John 4:16; NIV).
* The LORD is gracious and compassionate (Psalm 145:8; NIV)
* Come near to God and he will come near to you (James 4:8; NIV).

Heavenly Father,
Your power is vast,
Your wisdom, profound.

You are fire –
Towering, inextinguishable,
Blazing in infinite space.

You are light –
Dazzling, unquenchable,
Banishing darkness forever.

You are love –
Unfailing, unconditional,
Reaching out to our cold, dark hearts.

You are near –
Gracious, compassionate,
Ready to forgive,
The moment we repent, 
And turn to you.
