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.

“Abba, Father,” he cried out, “everything is possible for you” (Mark 14:36; NLT).

And the Lord – who is the Spirit – makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image (2 Corinthians 3:18; NLT).

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus
(Philippians 2:5; NIV).

 

Father,
Everything is possible for you.

By the power of your Holy Spirit,
Please help me to grow
More like your dear Son
In thought, word and deed,
With every day that passes.

Through his most precious name,
Amen.
