Oh, Beautiful One...

"By day the Lord commands his steadfast love,
and at night his song is with me,
a prayer to the God of my life."~Psalm 42:8

My Lord,

How easy it is for me to forget that you formed me. You have looked on me said, "She is mine." I am called blessed because of you. Remind me of Your song. All beauty comes from You, Jesus, including my own. May I be reminded of that as I watch the sun rise, see the beauty of candlelight, and listen to your children sing your praises.

Lord, the devil so eagerly wants to see me fall. And I see how he tries to attack me. Lord, as You say in Your beautiful word, You are in the midst of me. I will not be moved. You will help me with each new day. So, Father, allow me to understand even a fraction of this amazing grace You offer. Do not let me cheapen it with my perceptions of how things are or should be-or even how I am or should be. You look upon me and call me Yours. In Your name and by Your power, that will be enough. It is all for Your glory. I lay things at Your feet and see Your face.

Praise be to the most high God who will never fail to fulfill His promises.
