Lord, may nothing separate me from You today. Teach me how to choose only Your way today so each step will lead me closer to You. Help me walk by the truth and not my feelings.
I awake early in the morning. Many people are rolling over and going back to sleep my soul is longing to get up and spend time with my Lord
Though I can't physically see Him, I know He is present.
His perspective on things that are troubling me overshadow my anxiety. I feel relief in His presence.
I know my emptiness without you, I will go unfed longing being unsatisfied. My pain I can not carry, I give it to You Lord.
Help me to embrace what comes my way as an opportunity...rather than a personal battle within me, my Lord.
You already see all the many ways I will surely fall short and mess up.
But right now, I consciously tuck Your whisper of absolute love for me into the deepest part of my heart. I recognize Your love for me is not based on my performance. You love me and carry me in times of adversities. Your mercy, how amazing I‘m humbled. But what's most amazing is that the God of the Universe, the Savior of the world, would desire a few minutes with me this morning.
Lord, help me to forever remember what a gift it is to sit with You like this. You are my comforter, my shield, my salvation.
Dear Lord, I love You. You are the desire of my hearts every beat. I know and confess that sometimes my actions and reactions betray my love for You. Please forgive me. Thank You for Your grace that is able to recognize this new day as a new chance to walk closer with You. My Alfa and Omega, Amen
"Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name." Psalm 86:11 (NIV)
