I wake for another day, Lord, to experience your love; the glory of your goodness. I’ve become more aware of your presence, in the moments that take me through each day. You carry me above the worries and cares this world has cause to bring, to a place higher and greater than I can imagine. My perspective changes and my vision clears, above the clouds, mountains and hills. Across the oceans and lands of the past, you make my future clearer as I surrender to it, an eternity filled with hope. I lift up a praise to you as songs fill my heart. I love you and need you. Thank you for your promise to remain by my side for life. Praise you, Lord Jesus!
I count it all joy, Lord, to consider what you have done for me, and the work you are still completing in me. I find joy in this morning, even this afternoon and night; all day every day you are my Rock, my Fortress, and Shield. When I am weak, you are truly where I find my strength. When I have sorrow, you are my comfort and peace. Whether the sun shines or clouds gloom walking down this narrow road, you are with me every step. I find my joy in you, not in what goes on around me, but it’s in your presence, under the shadow of your wings. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Praise and glory to you alone, my Lord, my Jesus!
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!
