For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,
for my hope is from him.
He only is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
On God rests my salvation and my glory;
my mighty rock, my refuge is God.
Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your heart before him;
God is a refuge for us.
(Psalm 62:5-8 ESV)
What a whirlwind these last couple of months have been! Blessings after blessings after blessings!!!
God, I am in awe of you. I truly am. I am a living testimony of your lovingkindness. I am undeserving of anything good, yet you still lavishly pour out blessings on my life. Your mercy endures forever. Your grace abounds. What can I do, Lord, but to marvel at your majesty?
I remember the hard times, I remember the pain, I remember the disappointments. But I also remember your hand in all of them. You promised to never leave me nor forsake me, and you kept your promise. You promised to deliver me from anguish, and you did. You promised to comfort me through the pain, and you did. You promised to heal my broken heart and restore my soul, and you did. And just at the right time, you blessed me abundantly. Your grace is sufficient for me, Lord! You’re all I want and you’re all I need. Yet, you give me more and more and more. The things I have now are only earthly blessings. You let me pass the bar. You provide for me through the various jobs you give me. You gave me a godly man that points me deeper and closer to You. You gave me joy, oh Lord. You gave me peace through all my troubles.
I am sorry that I let other things steal my affection for you. I am sorry that I put more attention on MYSELF than on how I can honor you with my life. Lord, you did not even spare your only Son. You gave me Jesus so I can be made right with you. What a bloody and violent death he had to die just so I can be redeemed. I am sorry that I sometimes forget, I sometimes diminish the value of the cross. My thoughts should be saturated with you, my heart should long only for you, and my actions should only reflect the grace and love you gave me. So, I am sorry that I fail you. Thank you Lord for never letting go of me. Thank you for dealing with me according to your lovingkindness and not according to my sins.
All I can do now is to praise you and continue to honor you with my life. Glory be to you, Oh Father! You are worthy of all my praise!!!
