Darkness

The darkness we avoid
Is full of light, Lord.

The desert we reject
Is full of dew.

The suffering we fear
Is full of peace, Lord.

The wilderness we dread 
Is full of you.

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

The Lord, my God, lights up my darkness (Psalm 18:28; NLT).

Your strength will be renewed each day like the morning dew (Psalm 110:3; NLT).

In me you may have peace. You will have suffering in this world (John 16:33; CSB).

The pastures of the wilderness are again green with grass (Joel 2:22; NET).

He left in a boat to a remote are to be alone (Matthew 14:13; NLT).

Surely the Lord is in this place, and I was not aware of it (Genesis 28:16; NIV).

Prayer

You show yourself

The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known (Psalm 19:1-2; NLT).

God speaks again and again, though people do not recognise it (Job 33:14; NLT).

Before the cock crows, you will deny me three times (Matthew 26:75; RSV).

In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God (John 1:1; NLT).

 

Lord,
You show yourself
In every flower,
And you speak to us
In every tree.

Lord, you show yourself
In every creature,
And you speak to us
In sky and sea.

Yet, no matter
What you show to us,
Or how you speak to us
In this, your world,

Even as the cock crows,
We deny you,
Rejecting your creation,
And your Word.
