Thank You Lord


Genesis 26:6-29:30

“We see plainly that the LORD has been with you.” Genesis 26:28

Lord,

I want to be like that. I want to be someone that people can just look at me and know that You are with me. I want to be different in such a way that people will spend time with me and just know that that I have spent time with You. I want to be someone that isn’t so caught up in my religion that I see everyone’s faults instead of their beauty. I want to be someone who receives Your love for me in such a way that Your love becomes the only thing I seek after, and yet never have to seek it because it’s always there. Lord, You are so good and so amazing to me, I want people to see that in me and want it for themselves. Because they too can have what I have if they would only seek You first. Lord, the things of this world have an amazing way of drawing us in and taking our eyes of You and Your love for us. Please help me to keep You in my sights and to allow the things of this world to grow strangely dim in the light of Your wonderful face.

Father thank You for showing me your face and Your light! Thank You for supporting me and always being my tower of strength and refuge. Thank You for providing for all our needs according to Your glorious riches through Christ Jesus my King. Thank You for justifying me with Your Grace as a gift, and OH what a gift it is! Thank You for showing me the best features of Your gift of Grace and allowing me to be the bearer of Your good news in this world! Please help me to spread Your gospel to all the world and make disciples; not just followers, not just students, or servants, but friends!

Jesus thank You for being my friend!!! You truly are the greatest gift in all the world and I can’t imagine my life without You in it! You are my everything. The thought of living just one moment without Your presence is devastating to me and I honestly can’t imagine how in the world anyone could live without You. The peace that You bring into my heart when all the world is trembling with fear around me, it thrills my soul to know You are near.

There is nothing like knowing that I am never, no not ever, alone because You are with me. I am so sorry for ever having doubted that Lord. There have been times when I doubted Your love and Your presence in my life and I apologize, please help me with my unbelief.

You are so good! Thank You for being You! Thank You for loving me when no one else did, thank You for trusting me even when You really shouldn’t. Thank You for being with me when no one else was. Thank You for being YOU!

Amen!
