Nothing less

I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End (Revelation 22:13; NLT).

He himself gives everyone life and breath (Acts 17:25; NIV).

We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love (1 John 4:16; NLT).

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

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

Father,

You are all
That truly matters,

Yet, thankfully, this means
We matter too;

Because you make us all,
And deeply love us,

For we are nothing less
Than part of you.

You love me

Hello, everyone. Here is my response to the questions posed by yesterday’s blog:

 

Lord God,

Though I am even less
Than nothing,
You made me,
And you keep me,
Every day;

You help me
Face my trials
And my sorrows,
Because you love me deeply,
Come what may.

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

I am nothing (Job 40:4; NLT).

You made me (Psalm 119:73; NLT).

The Lord keeps me alive (Psalm 54:4; NLT).

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

Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me (Psalm 23:4; KJV).

May you have the power to understand […] how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is (Ephesians 3:18; MLT).

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.

No surprise

You made me (Psalm 119:73; NLT).

You know me (Psalm 139:21; NIV).

He hears us (1 John 5:14; NLT ).

You see me (Jeremiah 12:3; NIV).

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

 

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

What I’m like
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.
