Glad is my heart and content is my soul because Jesus is my Savior. Lord, may I never take for granted the enormity of Your grace within the beauty of atonement. The indwelling presence of Your Spirit lifts me above the common trials and seasonal tribulations. Only a heavenly perspective can comfort me through every storm. When darkness encroaches, tempting me to revert to former ways, the bright light of Your forgiveness pierces through the ominous clouds. Whatever comes my way, I need not fear because Your staff and Your rod guide me to the still waters of salvation. When I peer into the crystalline waters, Lord, let me see Your reflection and not my own. For each hailstorm of difficulty in life offers an opportunity to be continually shaped by Your loving hand. Father, increase my trust, enhance my faith, receive my devotion and grow me in love. Even as I fix my eyes on You, take me to the places in this world where I can become Your hands and feet. Where I can be Your messenger of truth. As I abide in You, Lord Jesus, my soul is sweetly contented. Under the mighty Word of truth in Psalm 23:1-3 and the authority of Christ, I humbly pray.
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside quiet waters,
He refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for His Name’s sake.
Psalm 23:1-3, NIV
