Pointless

Father,

It is pointless
To resent, or hate,
Our illness,

For anger 
Will not make it 
Go away.   

Instead, 
Help us to live
With how we are,

To manage,
And to learn 
From it,

Making the best
We can 
Of every day.

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

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

Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity (Hebrews 6:1; NIV).

I was given a thorn in my flesh […] Three times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:7-9; NLT).

 When your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow (James 1:3; NLT).

No soul

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

You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind (Luke 10:27; NLT).

Let love be your highest goal! (1 Corinthians 14:1; NLT).

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

Father,
Life with you
Is an adventure –

It has meaning,
Steps to learn,
A final goal.

But without you
It’s essentially
Depressing –

It lacks meaning,
Has no structure,
And no soul.

Like you.

Holy is your name

Your name is holy! (Psalm 99:3; NLT).

There is none beside you –
Holy is your name.

And thank you, Lord –
Holy is your name.

During life,
And after death –
Holy is your name.

And I’m in you –
Holy is your name.

And you are all –
Holy is your name.

Those who don’t know you

They do not know me, says the Lord (Jeremiah 9:3; NLT).

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

Our heart’s desire is to glorify your name (Isaiah 26:2; NLT).

Who don’t know you
Start seeking you;

Who seek you
Discover you;

And may those
Who discover you
Find their heart’s desire.

Until I find

Father,
During every silent prayer
May I keep on seeking you
Until I find.

Father,
Throughout every day and night
May I keep on seeking you
Until I find.

Father,
During every time of need
May I keep on seeking you
Until I find.

Father,
At the moment of my death
May I keep on seeking you,
Until I find.

Keep on seeking and you will find (Luke 11:9; NLT).

If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me (Jeremiah 29:13-14; NLT).
