When we are
Tempted

To be selfish
Or unkind,

Please help us
To remember

You are love.

Hide and seek

“Can anyone hide from me in a secret place? Am I not everywhere in all the heavens and the earth?” says the Lord (Jeremiah 23:24; NLT).

When you seek me in prayer and worship, you will find me available to you (Jeremiah 29:13; NET).

His mercy is everlasting (Psalm 100:5; NLT).

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

 

Lord,
I want to hide from you
In shame,
Remembering my sins
Throughout my life.

But instead,
I’m going to seek you out
In faith,
Remembering your mercy
And your love.
