The way of love

How can we learn
To tell your voice 
From ours, Lord?

Yours always guides us 
In the way of love.

How can we learn
To tell your will
From ours, Lord?

Yours always guides us
In the path of peace.

Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children, and walk in the way of love (Ephesians 5:2; NIV).

My soul

You’re my way,

My example,
And my soul.

Silent worship

I was caught up to paradise and heard things so astounding that they cannot be expressed in words (2 Corinthians 12:4; NLT).

Be silent before the Sovereign Lord (Zephaniah 1:7; NIV).

Worship the Lord in all his holy splendour (1 Chronicles 16:29; NLT).

When our words
Are inadequate
To praise you, Lord,
Silent worship
Is the only way ahead.

The way, the truth, and the life

Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6; NLT).

Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me (Psalm 23:4; NLT).

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).

 

Lord,
You are the way,
The truth,
And the life.

Please help me
To walk beside you
Every day,
Until I reunite with you
In death.

Lost

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).

 

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