You Alone

My soul finds rest in God alone. (Psalm 62:1, NIV)

God, You are the only certainty in my life.
You are the only leadership I can trust.
You are my only lasting comfort.
You are my only forever companion.
You alone are my confidence.
You make me adequate.
You make me complete.
You are the only good and worthy thing about me.

You alone are truth, my Lord God.
You alone are reality.
You are, so I am.
You are as I will be.
That’s a miracle worth waiting for.

I wait for You, Lord.
I worship You and
love You and
reach for You alone.

Our trials teach us
the falseness and emptiness of
all that is not God.
Nothing is real,
nothing is good outside of Him.
(paraphrased from Francois Fenelon)

Hymn: Psalm 62

In the Silence

Psalm 62

Father, I live in the endless, all-enveloping noise of
my plans and my desires,
my success and my failures,
my health and my comfort,
my time and my obligations,
my money and my possessions,
my ambitions and my problems,
my job,
my relationships, and
my satisfaction.
All these desperately, perpetually cry for attention,
shouting their
empty threats and
empty promises.
All are too small and too shallow to
harm or
my life in You.

Father, I turn from them and
turn to You,
the All-encompassing One,
the All-sufficient,
the All-in-all.
In the quietness, I find You to be
all joy,
all hope,
all truth,
all goodness, and
all peace –
all I could ever want or need.
So in this endless, all-enveloping silence
I wait and hope,
I move and rest
in You.
