Too tired

The eternal God is your refuge, and his everlasting arms are under you (Deuteronomy 33:27; NLT).

You are close beside me (Psalm 23:4; NLT).

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

Lord,

When I’m too tired or ill
To pray

I simply rest
In your eternal arms,

Closer to you, my God,
Than when I’m well.

It makes no sense

Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them (1 John 4:16; NIV).

I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one (John 17:22; NLT).

You are all one in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:28; NLT).

It make no sense
To tell you that I love you,

It makes no sense
To say that you love me,

It makes no sense
To add that we love everyone –

Since all are one in love,
Eternally.

The eternal God

Man is like a breath. His days are like a shadow that passes away (Psalm 144:4; HNV).

We have this hope as a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls (Hebrews 6:19; NLT).

The eternal God is your refuge, and his everlasting arms are under you (Deuteronomy 33:27; NLT).

I am the Lord, and I do not change (Malachi 3:6; NLT).

 

Lord,
As we pass through life,
Each moment we experience
Is gone forever.

So, may we anchor our souls
In you alone,
The eternal God,
Who does not change at all.

It doesn’t matter

The eternal God is your refuge (Deuteronomy 33:27; NLT).

The Lord [is] strong and mighty (Psalm 24:8; NLT).

Your heavenly Father is perfect (Matthew 5:48; NIV).

Whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17; NIV).

 

Lord,
It doesn’t matter
That I’m old,
For you’re eternal.

It doesn’t matter
That I’m weak,
For you are strong.

It doesn’t matter
That I’m flawed,
For you are perfect.

It doesn’t matter
That I’m nothing –
We are one.

Unseen God

Seek his face always (Psalm 105:4; NIV).

Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening (1 Samuel 3:9; NIV).

Truly, O God of Israel, our Saviour, you work in mysterious ways (Isaiah 45:15; NLT).

The eternal God is your refuge (Deuteronomy 33:27; NLT).

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

 

Unseen God,
We long to glimpse your face.

Silent God,
We long to hear your voice.

Mysterious God,
We long to know your ways.

Eternal God,
We long to share your peace.

TRIALS AND SORROWS

Trials and sorrows

Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows (John 16:33; NLT).

Three things will last forever – faith, hope, and love – and the greatest of these is love (1 Corinthians 13:13; NLT).

“I am leaving you with a gift – peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give” (John 14:27; NLT).

For if you do these things, you will never stumble, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:10-11; NIV).


Lord,
Please help us
In this world of trials and sorrows.

Heal our hatred and enmity,
Our fear and violence.

Fill us with faith and hope,
With peace and love.

Then bring us, at last,
To your eternal kingdom.

In Jesus’ name,
Amen.

QUESTIONS

Questions 

We believe that we are all saved the same way, by the undeserved grace of the Lord Jesus (Acts 15:11; NLT).

He forgives all my sins (Psalm 103:3; NLT).

Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you (1 Peter 5:7; NLT).

He restores my soul (Psalm 23:3; NKJV).

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16; NIV).

The LORD blesses them with peace (Psalm 29:11; NLT).


There is no grace
Like yours, Lord –

So why am I surprised
When you forgive my sins?

There is no care
Like yours, Lord –

So why am I amazed
When you restore my soul?

There is no love
Like yours, Lord –

So why am I astonished
When you bless me with peace?
