CONVERSATIONS/MEDITATIONS I

by

Donna Cook






#1

“...I am the way and the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father but through me.” John 4:6

You are the piece of the puzzle,
the part that makes this life
fit together.
It makes no sense
without You -
there is nothing else
that I can do
but to reach out for
Your hand.


#2

“For Thou, O Lord, hast made me glad by what thou hast done, I will sing for joy at the works of Your hand.” Psalms 92:4

When my heart is heavy
And I’m lost within myself
I have only to look outside
and see the works of Your hand,
the wonder of creation,
and it lifts my heart to You.


#3

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.” Matt. 6:19

Stuff, stuff, stuff,
We’re so wrapped up in
STUFF!
Stuff to ride in,
stuff to eat,
stuff to wear
on our feet.
Trying to fill
the empty spaces,
cover up the lonely places
but it is never
enough,
so still we reach for
more
and
more
and
more
STUFF.



#4

“Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you.” Matt. 7:7

Why is it that
I always try to fix things by myself?
You would think that I would have learned by now
that the harder I try
sometimes the worse it gets,
especially when I turn to
everything
and everyone
but You.




#5

“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love.” 1 John 4:18

Fear always keeps me back
from being who I need to be.
I think that it is FEAR
that keeps so many of us
in chains.
And the God who made us
is the only one who holds the key
to release us
from our own
personal
prison
