Darkness

God is light, and there is no darkness in him at all (1 John 1:5; NLT).

Clouds and thick darkness surround him (Psalm 97:2; NIV).

Moses approached the thick darkness where God was (Exodus 20:21; NLY).

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

Lord,
You are light,

And in you there is no darkness
At all.

Yet you surround yourself 
With deepest darkness,

Where we can meet you safely
Every day.

Light and darkness

God is light (1 John 1:5; NIV).

Clouds and thick darkness surround him (Psalm 97:2; NIV).

Come close to God, and God will come close to you (James 4:8; NLT).

 

Lord,
When I close my eyes,

I enter either the light
Of your presence,

Or the darkness
That surrounds you.

But, whether I find myself
In light or darkness,

I thank you for letting me
Draw so close to you.

Prayer

Lord

“For you created all things” (Revelation 4:11; NLT).

He himself gives life and breath to everything (Acts 17:25; NLT).

Am I not everywhere in all the heavens and earth?” says the LORD (Jeremiah 23:4; NLT).

…the kingdom of God is within you (Luke 17:21; KJV).

O LORD my God, how great you are! (Psalm 104:1; NLT).


Lord,
You make all things,
And give them life.

You’re in all things.
You surround them,
And sustain them.

You’re in the air we breathe,
The water we depend on,
And the food we eat.

You’re in us all, Lord,
Even me –
How great you are!
