Wandering thoughts

I will give you treasures hidden in darkness (Isaiah 45:3; NLT).

I am the Lord who heals you (Exodus 15:26; NLT).

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

 

Friends,

Don’t reject
Your wandering thoughts
In silent prayer,

Pushing them back
Into your shadow self,

Or substituting them
With views you find
More “positive”.

Instead,
Please hear them out
With due respect,

So you can learn from them,
And change, and grow –

For their purpose
Is to tell you
Who you are.

Your kingdom

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else (Matthew 6:33; NLT).

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

The kingdom of God is already among you (Luke 17:21; NLT).

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

 

Lord,
Help me to build
Your kingdom
Deep within me,
Through all my thoughts,
My words,
And my behaviour;

And help me to build
Your kingdom
All around me –
Through all my thoughts,
My words,
And my behaviour.

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.
