When Darkness Comes

A prayer response to Revelation 13:1-10,
the beast from the sea

When good comes to me,
I accept it as from Your gracious hand.
I look to You.
I thank You.
I rejoice in You.

But how do I respond when my days bring me
darkness and uncertainty,
mistreatment and injustice,
pain and sickness,
suffering and sorrow,
loss and the shadow of death?
Where do I look then?

I look to You.
You are still
Almighty God.
You are still
perfect wisdom and
unfailing love.
You are still good and right in all You do.
You are still
my Father.

I believe in You.
I believe in You
when I understand.
I believe in You
when I cannot understand.

I wait on You.
I hope in You.
I trust You.
I rejoice in You.
I follow You,
even into the darkness.

Reciting What I Know

I need reassurance today, my Lord God,
so I recite what I know.

I know You are with me, Father.
I know You love me.
I know You are working all things for my good.

More importantly, I know You are working Your will through my life and
through all that is happening to me.
I know You love my loved ones and
are working for the best of each and every one of them.
Thank You, Father!

I know You are never surprised,
never caught off guard,
never threatened,
never defeated.

I know that very soon I will see You face-to-face.
I will see You as You are, and
I will be like You.
I will be with You forever.

In You, Lord God, the truth, the reality of my life is wonderful.
I choose to live in that reality today.
