When trouble surrounds me I can find rest in the protection of my LORD’s arms. With my weary heart, I whisper to Him: “You are my God, my everything.” My delight is in Jesus for He is the desire of my soul. There is no other besides You, my God and my King. For I will serve only You. I will give my love to You alone. You have chosen me and I have chosen to follow You. May this holy bond make me one with You. What beauty I behold when You are with me. What blessed comfort I take in Your promises. Your precious words of wisdom guide me along the precarious path of life. When I awake in the night, my soul immediately reaches for You. Teach me, Jesus, for I have much to learn. I long to bring You glory. Strengthen me by the power of Your Spirit so that I will not be shaken. What gladness caresses my heart! What joy floods my entire being when I think of You, my LORD. My love is secure for I know that You will not abandon me. How grateful I am that I belong to the King. This place where I dwell is not my home. For You have made known to me that hope of a better place –my eternity with You. There is no greater pleasure than holding the hand of my Savior. Lead me home Jesus. Lead me home! Under the beauty of Your Word in John 17:3 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I come before my Father in prayer.
Now this is eternal life: that they know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ,
whom You have sent.
John 17:3, NIV
