Soothing

As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you (Isaiah 66:13; NIV).

With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs (Zephaniah 3:17; NLT).

 

Lord God,
Please soothe
My anxious heart

With songs
And warm embraces;

With kisses,
And sweet words
Of reassurance –

As a loving parent soothes
Their frightened child.

And soul,
To worship you
In stillness,
And in silence.

Happiness

Happiness

My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him (Psalm 28: 7; NIV).

Father,
I’m bursting with happiness
Because you love me unconditionally,
Even though I’m entirely unworthy
Of your delight.
