You make and care for us

The Lord looks down from heaven on all mankind to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. All have turned away, all have become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one. (Psalm 14:2-3; NIV).

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

Lord,

You make and care for us
With love,

Yet we ignore and thwart you,
Which is strange –

For we’re on course
To devastate our world,

With greed, pollution, war,
And climate change.

We are one

There is one Lord …who is over all and in all and living through all (Ephesians 4:5-6; NLT).

He will rejoice over you with joyful songs (Zephaniah 3:17; NLT).

He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows (Isaiah 53:4; NKJV).

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

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


Lord God,
You make everything
That exists.

You live within all things,
Including us.

You rejoice with us,
And suffer with us,

For you are part of us,
And we are part of you,

So we are one.

Lord,
What I’m like
Is no surprise to you,
Because you made me.

Is no surprise to you,
Because you know me.

What I’m like
Is no surprise to you,
Because you hear me.

What I’m like
Is no surprise to you,
Because you see me.

And what I’m like
Is no surprise to you,
Because you love me.
