Fingerprint Friday - Rainy Day, Reigning Day

Fingerprint Friday was started by Beki, at The Rusted Chain. It was inspired by the song by Steven Curtis Chapman that contains the line..."when I look at you, I can see the fingerprints of God." To participate and/or visit all of the blogs that participate, go to the Fingerprint Friday Post on Beki's blog and follow the instructions. 

My Fingerprint Friday post is so late today.
It has been a gray, rainy day in Georgia. Yes, it does feel like it's raining all over the world.
My mood has been a bit gray, like the day and I had to reach deeply within to find the Spirit today.
Fortunately, He seems to reach toward me as I reach for Him and together, things improve.

Reign in Me

Come, reign in me, sweet Spirit,
Chase away the darkness that threatens
To separate me from God's lovely light.
Let me rest in the shadow of His
Sheltering wings.
Protect me, shield me
From the weight and evil of this broken world.
I  sing a song of praise to You
For Your eternal goodness and love.
I  lift my voice in gratitude
For your mercy.
My heart sings with joy at
The beauty of Your creation.

Never take Your Spirit, from me,
Dwell within me and 
I will dwell in You.
My heart is overflowing with Your love,
Joyfully, I dance like David,
Your peace removes the clutter of my mind
I wait with patience for You to
Teach me kindness and
Refresh me with your goodness,
My faithfulness grows in Your
Enduring faithfulness to me. 
I see Your fingerprints on 
All of Your creation.
And find that all is well with me.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and will take time to be refreshed in Him!
