Love everyone

Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them (Romans 12:9; NLT).

Love your neighbour as yourself (James 2:8; NLT).

Love ye therefore the stranger (Deuteronomy 10:19; KJV).

Love your enemies (Matthew 5:44; NIV).

Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing (Luke 23:34; NLT).


Love everyone,
Exactly as they are –

No matter what they’ve thought,
Or said, or done.

Love everyone,
Exactly as they are –

No matter how they hurt
Or let you down.

Love everyone,
Exactly as they are –

By following the lead
Of God’s own Son.



I have wandered away like a lost sheep (Psalm 119:176; NLT).

You are close beside me (Psalm 23:4; NLT).

Be sure of this: I am with you always (Matthew 28:20; NLT).

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


It’s better
To be lost
With you,
Than to think
I know the way
All on my own!


Like you

Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ (Ephesians 5:2; NLT).

Speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ (Ephesians 4:15; NLT).

It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me (Galatians 2:20; NLT).


I long to be like you –

To pray,
And act like you
Each day –
Always with love.

For then it will be
No longer I who live,
But you, within me.

I ask this
In your holy name,


Remembering God

“Can a mother forget her nursing child? Can she feel no love for the child she has borne? But even if that were possible, I would not forget you!” (Isaiah 49:15; NLT).

Please help me to remember you
Throughout today;

Or at least
To think of you often;

Or, at worst,
Just now and then…

Yet even when I forget you altogether,
You never forget me –

For which I thank you, Lord,
With all my heart.
