Thank you for your goodness, Lord. I remind myself of what kind of spirit resides within me, one of power and love and a sound mind, that is discipline. So, I am not ashamed of the testimony of Christ Jesus. You have saved me with a holy calling, not according to my works, but according to your own purpose and grace. You abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, for which you teach me by even this very day. I know troubles and trials, but I also know love and joy. I know whom I have believed and I am convinced that you are able to guard what I have entrusted to you. I will keep your Words in the midst of my heart, in faith and love. I will guard, through the Holy Spirit who dwells in me, the treasure which I’ve been entrusted. Praise and glory to you, Lord Jesus!
