You Are God....I am Your's

"See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are." (1 John 3:1) "We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love.  God is love..." (1 John 4:16)

I'm writing my own version of poetry this month.  This one is examines how God touches our life.

My thoughts escape me
   when I consider Your love
My sight fails me
   when I behold Your holiness
My lips humble me
   when I proclaim Your name
My ears silence me
   when I hear Your voice

You love..I am in awe
You shine brightly...I am overshadowed
You speak...I am listening
You are God...I am Your's

When I ask
    You hear my words
When I call
    You answer my prayers
When I cry
    You wipe away my tears
When I  hurt
    You heal my wounds

You love..I am in awe
You shine brightly...I am overshadowed
You speak...I am listening
You are God...I am Your's

In the shadows
    You illuminate my path
In the silence
    You comfort my lonliness
In the confusion
    You direct my thoughts
In the shame
    You forgive my sin

You love..I am in awe
You shine brightly...I am overshadowed
You speak...I am listening
You are God...I am Your's


Father God,

Thank You for loving me when others couldn't.  Thank You for teaching me how to love, how to forgive, and how to live.  Your grace covers my life in so many ways, that I am continually amazed.  You fill me with joy that I cannot describe.


I pray for those who need You in this moment.  Shower them with Your grace.  Speak Your words of healing and comfort.  Some are grieving, some are sick, some are hungry; may we in faith serve those in need through love.  Thank You Lord for all that You are, and all that You do on our behalf.  Amen.
