I open your Word, and you transform my reality.
The blurry comes into focus- your Truth touches me, and makes me whole.
I am satisfied as with a feast.
You know what I need, and generously pour words of comfort, discipline, and direction upon me.
I feel refreshed and revived.
And all the unanswered questions seem small in the light of your glory and grace.
You came to me during one of my lowest moments, when I was certain you had abandoned me- and left me in misery- and used all of the difficulties and hardships to refine me and give me a precious treasure in new depth of trust and faith in you.
This amazing and profound mystery- you touched me– you healed me and strengthened me-and made me whole.
I will never be the same.
Your Word speaks to me with power and authority- it shines light into my heart and brings peace. It leads me in the path of life.
You walk with me and talk with me.
And I see now the greatest gift you give is simply- YOU. Your presence.
You are my God, and I will give thanks to you; you are my God, I will extol you. O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever.
More precious than any prayer that you answer LORD, is the precious truth that you have given me yourself. Your abiding presence- Your love. May nothing in this world captivate me like you do. Help raise my eyes to look upon your face- to turn from the difficulties and struggles and simply gaze upon your truth. You are here- you are faithful- you are my rock and my deliverer. You hold my family in the palm of your hand. We are safe. I know I have the strength to face this unknown future when you are holding me- when you guide our steps and help us. Thank you for your promises- thank you for speaking peace to me when my heart is troubled. I am overwhelmed by your goodness and steadfast love to me. All praise and honor to our God and King forever, Amen.
