My Lord and Savior, how gracious are Your hands that catch me when I have the courage to step into the void where Your arms are waiting despite my fears. I trust You with the entirety of my being, Jesus. Take me, this messy lump of clay, and mold me into a vessel fit for Kingdom use. I whole-heartedly believe that You are able. I delightfully acknowledge that You are willing to deliver me from the cares that assail the peace Your presence imparts. Lead me away from the unrest, Holy Spirit. Shatter the chains that have bound me in fear. Lord, You are stronger than my enemy. You are mightier than my foes. Even in the extremity of my weakness, Your grace keeps me. Even amidst my failures to control my life, You wait for my fullness of trust without condemnation. I give unto You my frail and foolish heart, never ceasing to marvel how beautifully Your scarred hands hold the shattered pieces. Lord, work Your good pleasure in and through me. Under the mighty Word given in Philippians 2:12-13 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed,
so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence,
work out your own salvation with fear and trembling,
for it is God who works in you,
both to will and to work for his good pleasure.
Philippians 2:12-13, ESV
