Dwell in my soul

Both night
And day.

May I spend today
With you?

Walking
Side by side,

Sometimes talking,
Sometimes resting,
Often silent;

Sharing food, and drink,
And love
With all we hail –

For whilst
I’m one with you,
I will not fail.

But we don’t thank you;

Yet you love us as we are –
Year after year.

Lord,
Your message is so simple –

All we need to do
Is love you,
Listen to you,
Talk to you honestly,
Follow your Son,
Forgive others,
And serve you
As best we can.

In Jesus’ precious name,
Amen.

Self or others?

Self or others? 

Depression haunts my days (Job 30:16; NLT).

“I am nothing” (Job 40:4; NLT).

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another” (John 13:34; NIV).

The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love (Galatians 5:6; NIV).


Father,
After church today,
However bad I feel about myself,
And however much I long
To escape from social contact,
Please help me
To overcome my awkwardness,
My lack of confidence,
And my miserably low self-esteem.

Help me instead
To think of others –
To notice those who look lonely,
Unwell,
Anxious,
Or depressed –
The ones who need to talk.

Then help me to approach them
With a smile,
Offering my interest,
Friendship,
Care,
And love –
As Jesus did.

In his dear name,
Amen.
