It’s impossible

How great is God – beyond our understanding!
(Job 36:26; NIV).

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

Lord,

It’s impossible
For us

To scale
Your infinite heights,

Or plumb
Your limitless depths.

Instead,

We simply
Lose ourselves

In you.

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

His understanding is infinite (Psalm 147:5; KJV).

I can’t even imagine the greatness of his power (Job 37:5; NLT).

“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine” (Isaiah 55:8; NLT).

All glory, majesty, power, and authority are his before all time, and in the present, and beyond all time! (Jude 1:25; NLT).

Contemplation

Contemplation

People are born for trouble as readily as sparks fly up from a fire (Job 5:7; NLT).

Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible” (Matthew 19:26; NLT).

…turn to the LORD your God with all your heart and soul (Deuteronomy 30:10; NLT).


Lord,
My mind is crowded
With troubled thoughts
And conflicting emotions –

Contemplation seems
Impossible.

Please help me
To put my worries aside,
And to turn to you
For the space
Of just one breath,
And then another,
And another –

For with you
Everything is possible.

In Jesus’ name,
Amen.

Faith

Faith 

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see (Hebrews 11:1; NIV).

“Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you”
(Matthew 17:20; NIV).

For we live by faith, not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7; NIV).

The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love (Galatians 5:6; NIV).

Father,
Please help me to go forward in faith,
Knowing that you want me to serve you,
Confident that my task will emerge
At the right time,
And trusting that you will equip me
To fulfil it.

In Jesus’ precious name,
Amen.
