Your Kindness

Your Kindness

Abba, are You really that kind and that good
Is what You say what You do

How much do You desire that I love You freely,
Without fear
and without shame
How much do You want me to run into You,
into Your arms when I am afraid
when darkness is too close to discern
How much comfort is available in Your heart for me

Abba, G-d of wonder, beautiful Servant
You have awed me with Your love
You have made Yourself known to this heart
that barely believed love was real

Your love, without conditions,
has shaped my heart
Your love has awakened real love
through which life and light can shine

How could I ever express my thankfulness to You
How could I ever give enough
My whole life is at Your dispense
and I make that choice again

For You are my life
You are my source
You are my strength
and You have become my salvation

No one compares
No darkness comprehends
Nothing can come close
to all that You have done for me

You truly are all I have
All my fountains are in You
There is none like You
Not one besides You
You heal and transform
the hearts of men
There is none who removes the blindness of eyes
and the hardness of heart
except You
You alone can soften this heart
You alone can help me see
You alone can heal this life

G-d who is worthy of all praise and thankfulness
G-d who created all things,
by Your will I exist,
for Your pleasure I was created
Therefore, I give it all back to You
I give all I am and all I have back to You

You are my Love,
You are my Life,
You are my Source,
and my Strength
You have become My salvation

I need You again

I am joining with Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. The goal is to write for five minutes about a word. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

Today’s prompt is:



Abba, I want to be one who can give and give and give
and not count it as anything compared to
Your great worth
and all You’ve given to me

I want to give beyond what I could naturally give
of my heart, my love, my emotions, my time, my money
I want to live for something bigger, something greater
I want to live for You, Your ways, Your truth, Your reality
I want to live and give of the things of which there is no law
I want to live in peace, joy, patience, kindness

I want to give beyond what seems possible
but I can’t do this without You,
Without Your help, Your Holy Spirit, Your life, You

So I ask today for Your help
Please help me to continue to give of myself
and not hold back, and not withhold
No matter what comes
I want to be like You
Help me to be more like You

I want to know in the core of my being that You will answer
And that You are more real than anything else I’ve ever experienced or known
Please do this, please help me Father

Today’s prompt is:


I am grateful for You,
My G-d, My King
My Abba, My Husband,
My Saviour, My Friend

You are My Beloved and I am Yours

If I wrote every minute of every hour of every day
for the rest of my life
I could not say enough
of how beautiful You are
and how grateful I am
that You came for me
I could not express
how deeply thankful I am that
You, the Perfect One
reached down to
me, the Broken one
and whispered life into
the deepest caverns of my soul

All of the expressions and songs of love
could never adequately tell of
who You’ve become to me

You are the One I’ve always wanted

You are the One who kept me
when all seemed lost
You are the One who rescued me
when darkness was closing in
You are the One who swept me up
in the depths of love, real love
for the first time in my life
You are the One who knew me
in my mother’s womb
You are the One who set me apart
for Yourself
You are the One who gave my life meaning
when I did not know You
You had my life written on the palms of Your hands
And You made sure
I would be here today, saying,
“I love You, My Beloved, My Friend”
Because how else could I respond to such a gift of love

In You I move and breathe and have my being
Thank You,
G-d of life who gave me life
Thank You
