#UTCOP – Praying Through Poetry #2

Thanks to LadyHeart at Morgue File for the image.

Lord,

You are our Rock, our Strength in times of trouble
through all the length of days, in every struggle

Whenever hardship comes our way You’re there
responding swiftly to our every prayer

Your presence brings a lasting peace
with comfort, reassurance, ease

Even though we often feel alone
You never leave us on our own

Holy Spirit continually reveals
You as the One who saves and heals

The Word made flesh who imparts
truth and hope to weary hearts

So no matter what calamities we will face
may we always rely on Your continual grace

Trust in the message seen and heard
Love poured out in Your written word

Watchful Wednesdays – How to Meet Jesus

Watchful Wednesdays – How to Meet Jesus

Jesus-Calling-August-16

 

Meet Me in early morning splendor. I eagerly await you there (Jesus Calling, August 16).

Yes, as I look through my windows the sun is draped in fog. I can see it trying to burn through. But it takes time.

Meeting Jesus is like that – it takes time for the Son to shine through. I read my Bible – I study His Word. I ask Him questions. I pray for others. But then just as the sun starts to shine through the fog, I sense His Presence in the room. A peace comes. In the stillness He is there.

When you see My Face in response to My love call, both of us are blessed (Jesus Calling, August 16). (tweet this)

Do you know Jesus? Have you asked Him to be Lord of your life? He will reveal Himself to you if you ask Him. That is all He is waiting for. He is waiting for you to ask Him. Do it now.
