Pointless

Father,

It is pointless
To resent, or hate,
Our illness,

For anger 
Will not make it 
Go away.   

Instead, 
Help us to live
With how we are,

To manage,
And to learn 
From it,

Making the best
We can 
Of every day.

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

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

Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity (Hebrews 6:1; NIV).

I was given a thorn in my flesh […] Three times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:7-9; NLT).

 When your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow (James 1:3; NLT).

Your will be done

Your will be done (Matthew 6:10; NIV).

Our lives are in his hands (Psalm 66:9; NLT).

Wait patiently for him (Psalm 37:7; NIV).

Never stop praying (1 Thessalonians 5:17; NLT).

………………………………………………………………..

 

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.

Open our eyes

He created the earth and everything in it (Isaiah 42:5; NLT).

The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship (Psalm 19:1; NLT).

“Am I not everywhere in all the heavens and earth?” says the Lord (Jeremiah 23:24; NLT).

You are the temple of the living God (Luke 17:21; NKJV).

 

Lord,
When we close our eyes
To your presence
In all you have created,
Our lives become pointless,
Empty,
And depressing.

Please open our eyes
To see you in the world,
In everyone we meet,
And even in ourselves.

Faith, hope, and love

Faith, hope, and love

Three things will last forever – faith, hope and love – and the greatest of these is love (1 Corinthians 13:13; NLT).

So the promise is received by faith. It is given as a free gift (Romans 4:16; NLT).

This letter is from Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus, appointed by the command of God out Saviour and Christ Jesus, who gives us hope (1 Timothy 1:1; NLT).

But each day the LORD pours out his unfailing love upon me (Psalm 42:8; NLT).


Lord,
Thank you
For giving me faith,
For without it
My life would be barren.

Thank you
For giving me hope,
For without it
My life would be pointless.

And thank you
For giving me love,
For without it
My life would be meaningless.

Through Jesus’ precious name,
Amen.
