Your ways

“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine” (Isaiah 55:8; NLT).

Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand (Philippians 4:7; NLT).

For you, a thousand years as a passing day, as brief as a few night hours (Psalm 90:4; NLT).

God has given us his Spirit as proof that we live in him and he in us (1 John 4:13; NLT).

My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine forever (Psalm 73:26; NLT).

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

Lord,

Your ways
Are far beyond
My understanding;

Your peace
Is far beyond
What I can share.

Your light
Is far beyond
My human vision;

Your fire
Is far beyond
What I can bear.

Your thoughts
Are far beyond
My comprehension;

Your years
Are far beyond
What I can chart.

Your love
Is far beyond
My weak discernment;

Yet your Spirit
Dwells forever
In my heart.

You’re beside us,
And within us, all the time, Lord,
And when we die
Our spirits merge with yours;

So we’re never far from you,
Or those we’ve lost, Lord,
But very near, forever,
Just like you.
