Prayer

Paradoxes

I know the Lord is always with me (Psalm 16:8; NLT).

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it (John 1:5; NLT).

He loves us with unfailing love (Psalm 117:2; NLT).

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

Lord,
You are present –
Even when you seem absent.

Your light shines –
Even in the dark.

You love us –
Even when we feel friendless,

And you hold us safely –
Even when all seems lost.
