Today’s prompt is:

Real

FMF-Real-600x600

This is Real Life

You are more real than anything
I’ve ever tasted
You are more real than anything
I could ever have wanted
You are more real than anything
I desired
and all You desire is that I choose You, Your life, Your love
You are more real than all the things I hoped for, wanted, or sought out
Thank You for the essence of who You are, Your authentic love for me

You are more real than any love I’ve ever known
You love is great
Your kindness is unsearchable

G-d of glory
Abba of my heart
Creator of thunder and lightning
G-d of gods
King of the whole earth
Holy One of Israel
There is none like You

Chief among ten thousand
G-d of Abraham,
G-d of Isaac,
G-d of Jacob
You are the one G-d
The real G-d
The living One

The reality of who You are
Penetrating the essence of me
My soul laid bare before You
The reality of Your love
Breathing life into this weary soul
Life for death
Light for darkness
Love for abandonment

You are the beautiful God
Filled with life
There’s nothing more real than You
There’s nothing more authentic than living before You

There is none before You
There is none after You
You love me
I love You
This is real life

Today’s prompt is:

Plan

You Know Better

You have a beautiful, wonderful awesome plan
Even when I’m concerned You’ve forgotten
You are working
You are moving
You are shifting and changing whatever needs
to be shifted and changed
that You can have Your way
that You can be glorified

Abba, You are so good
Your ways are true and righteous altogether
Your plan is perfect

Show me Your ways
again, more
Show me Your heart, your desires
again, more

O how I love You
O how I desire to walk in Your truth,
Your reality
all the days of my life

Thank You for loving me so
Thank You for knowing best
You are a good, good Abba

Abba אבא

Abba-Father

Abba, You are here with me
You are always here with me

I love Your ways
Help me to love Your ways more
I love the way of Your heart and the way that You are
I want to be more like You

I want to love You more
Help me to love You more
Help me to be wholeheartedly Yours
In my coming and in my going,
In my freedom and my captivity,
In my joy and in my sorrow,
I want to be wholeheartedly Yours

I want my heart
to connect with Yours
in love and life,
in hope and purity

Visit me Abba
Make me more like You
Spirit of the living God
fall afresh on me today

Let me honor You with all my breath
Let me honor You with all my thoughts
Let me honor You with all my strength
and all my might
and all I am

I love You G-d
There is no one like You

Kind G-d

Today’s prompt is:

Gather

FMF-Gather-600x600

Kind G-d

You gather me in
You gather Your people home
You gather, You scatter
Holy are You

G-d of the whole earth
Abba to Israel
There is none like You
You scatter, You gather
Holy are You

You’ve called me near
You’ve drawn me in
Your kindness is inexplicable
Your love unrestrained
towards me when I have nothing to bring

This is how You are
This is who You are
You, who formed all things
You, who breathed breath and life came forth
You, who created the heavens and the earth
You, who made me
Who wanted me near

Who is like You?
Great G-d
Beautiful Abba
Lover of my soul
Keeper of my heart

Thank You for gathering me near
