In contemplation

You are close beside me (Psalm 23:4; NLT).

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

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

Lord,

In contemplation,
I don’t even need

To let my thoughts
And feelings go.

I simply let them be
Just as they are,

Whilst I look on,
With you beside me,

Watching and waiting
Till they fade away,

And only you
And I remain

As one.

Wherever I am

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

In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind (Job 12:10; NIV).

“My Lord and my God!” Thomas exclaimed (John 20:28; NLT).

 

Wherever I am,
Whatever I do,
And however I feel,
I remain in your hands,
My Lord and my God.

As you remain in me –
For evermore.

I will return to you
With willing heart.

So, thank you
For being part of me,
As I am part of you.
