Darkness

The Lord, my God, lights up my darkness (Psalm 18:28; NLT).

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

When completeness comes, what is in part disappears (1 Corinthians 13:10; NLT).

Lord,
I’ve always kept my shadow self
In darkness,

Shunning the thoughts
I’d rather not accept;

But now, I’m sharing
My whole self with you,

So these thoughts become the cure
That makes me whole.

Close

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

The Lord is close to all who call on him (Psalm 145:18; NLT).

He is close to those who trust in him (Nahum 1:7; NLT).

The kingdom of God is within you (Luke 17:21; NKJV).

You are the temple of the living God (Luke 17:21; NKJV).

Lord God,
You are as close to me
As breathing,

As close as the thoughts
In my mind,

And the feelings
In my heart –

For you dwell
In my soul.

Thoughts

How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver! (Proverbs 16:16; NLT).

To acquire wisdom is to love oneself (Proverbs 19:8; NLT).

If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you (James 1:5; NLT).

 

Lord,
Some of my thoughts
Make me feel anxious,

Whilst others
Make me feel depressed.

Please help me
To choose my thoughts wisely!
