The Void

Without You Heavenly Father
life has a void.
Thank You Father,
that
as You have filled
the void
in our lives,
today
we ask that
as we serve,
through us,
we will help You fill the void
in those
You are calling,
those You are restoring,
and those
who You love,
In Jesus’ name,
Amen

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as
you trust in Him. – Romans 15:13 (NIV)

another day
to appreciate

as we share its value
with expectant lives
around us
floods our hearts
with gratitude
and grace
thank You
Heavenly Father
Amen!

I will sing aloud of Your mercy in the morning … I will tell
of all the marvelous things You have done. Psalm 59:16/Psalm 9:1
