27th February We know, Lord, that you are with us in all situations and we are safe in your loving care, even when we pass beyond the veil. We thank you for your love and care that passes our understanding but is so comforting at this time.
Promises from God.
You will find freedom wherever My Spirit dwells. 2 Corinthians 3:17
You can know and depend on the love that I have for you. 1 John 4:16
You can trust in Me for I will never forsake you. Psalm 9:10
Almighty and everlasting God,
Creator of all things.
As we venture out into your universe
Guide us not to destroy the beauty of your silence,
But to respect what we find,
And pay reverence to what we fail to understand.
May our seeking lead us to accept,
That which we cannot know,
Is also a part of your great design,
To attract us,
To draw us
Ever closer to you.
