Accept your pain

Enjoy prosperity while you can, but when hard times strike, realise that both come from God. Remember that nothing is certain in this life (Ecclesiastes 7:14; NLT).

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

The Lord gave me what I had, and the Lord has taken it away. Praise the name of the Lord! (Job 1:21; NLT).

Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble? (Job 2:10; NIV).

The Lord gives both death and life (1 Samuel 2:6; NLT).

The Lord is near (Philippians 4:5; NIV).

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

 

Accept your pain,
Accept your strife,
Accept your self,
Accept your life.

Accept your joy,
Accept your fear,
Accept your death,
For God is near.

Lord God,

Sometimes I wish so much
I could be well again,

For life is passing me by
Day after day.

It seems so pointless, Lord,
Yet may your will be done;

So I rest in your hands,
And wait, and pray.

Prayer

We’re dying

A wise person thinks a lot about death (Ecclesiastes 7:4; NLT).

Teach us to realise the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom (Psalm 90:12; NLT).

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).

…………………………………………..

 

Lord,
We’re dying –

Sick or well,
Death comes a little closer
To us all
Each day.

Please help us
To fix our hearts on you
Until life’s end,

When we will reunite
With you
For evermore.
