Lord, when I stop and reflect on the mercies You have given me…
I remember love, the kind that will never separate from me.
I remember grace, undeserved.
I remember the Holy Spirit, given to dwell inside of me, lead me, guide me.
I remember peace, supernatural.
I remember saving faith.
I remember patience, kindness, hope and comfort–imagine living life without these?
Glory and honor.
Forgiveness and reconciliation, thank You, God!
Righteousness and justification.
FREEDOM! (Can I hear an “Amen”?)
Eternal life and resurrection.
Sonship & Security.
I remember these mercies (and so many more), and I am overwhelmed. Do I even deserve one of them?
So what is my response, Lord?
Father God, thank You. Your mercies overwhelm me. I give myself to You this day–my soul, my mind, my body, my heart. I’m Yours, Lord. Take me and use me, or let me be still and hear Your voice. In You, I’ll live and move and have my being. In You, I’ll find my rest. It’s in Your merciful name I pray, Amen.
