To imagine myself resting in the lap of a tender, loving God–what could bring more peace and joy?
My prayer response:
Creator, as You bring me into the fullness of life, there is nothing for me to do. What a strange thought. What a beautiful truth! Here I am.
- God is love. 1 John 4:7
- So God created humankind in his image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. … God saw everything that he had made, and indeed, it was very good. Genesis 1:27, 31
- Grace, mercy, and peace will be with us from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Father’s Son, in truth and love. 2 John 3
