Father, you are sovereign. Though my moments are sometimes marked with sin and brokenness, you don’t make mistakes. If I am here, you have a plan for your glory, a purpose full of life to speak over me. Speak it and it will be. I’m prone to look inward, to exhaust myself by focusing on me. I too quickly forget to communicate with you when disappointments come, when pain seeps in. May I lean on you for guidance and life. Help me to meditate on your Word, your Word that gives life. Make this the ground on which I wrestle, walk, and live life.
I invite you here, to the place you created. You saw today when you called life out of nothing. You know my yesterdays and my tomorrows. The world moves because you breathe life into it. Thank you for the beauty, the color, the excitement, the movement. I exist here in this moment because you spoke it. Thank you for the grace that meets me around every turn.
I invite you to walk alongside me, walk close to me. Help my decision making treasure you above all. Help me to trust your heart, your promises. Saturate my life with your presence.
Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. James 1:12
