Cares

Give all you worries and cares to God, for he cares about you (1 Peter 5:7; NLT).

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

My future is in your hands (Psalm 31:14-15; NLT).

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

 

Lord,
During meditation
I put all my cares
Into your hands –

Though, in fact,
They are already
Safely there!

You hide me

Hide me in the shadow of your wings (Psalm 17:8; NLT).

All humanity finds shelter in the shadow of your wings (Psalm 36:7; NLT).

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

The Lord is full of tenderness (James 5:11; NLT).

The Lord your God will be your everlasting light (Isaiah 60:19; NLT).

………………………………………………..

 

You hide me
In your holy shadow, Lord;

You keep me safe
However dark the night.

You hold me
With your deepest tenderness;

And fill me
With your everlasting light.

Paradoxes

I know the Lord is always with me (Psalm 16:8; NLT).

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it (John 1:5; NLT).

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

The eternal God is your refuge, and his everlasting arms are under you (Deuteronomy 33:27; NLT).

Lord,
You are present –
Even when you seem absent.

Your light shines –
Even in the dark.

You love us –
Even when we feel friendless,

And you hold us safely –
Even when all seems lost.

Faith

Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see (Hebrews 11:1; NLT).

Teach us to realise the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom (Psalm 90:12; NLT).

For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow (James 1:3; NLT).


Lord,
Having faith
Means knowing
You are with us,
And that we are always safe
In your hands,
No matter what suffering
Life brings
To test us.

Whatever we experience,
Please help us to grow
In wisdom,
And endurance.

Through Jesus’ name,
Amen.

God who sees me

God who sees me

“You are the God who sees me” (Genesis 16:13; NIV).

I love the LORD because he hears my voice (Psalm 116:1; NLT).

O LORD, you have examined my heart and know everything about me
(Psalm 139:1; NLT).

LORD, you are the God who saves me (Psalm 88:1; NIV).

“I am the LORD, who heals you” (Exodus 15:27; NIV).

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

He ransoms me and keeps me safe (Psalm 55:18; NLT).

Send out your light and your truth; let them guide me. Let them lead me to your holy mountain, to the place where you live
(Psalm 43:3; NLT).


God who sees me,
And who hears me,

God who knows me,
And who saves me,

God who heals me,
And who loves me –

Keep me safe,
And guide me home.
