Engraved

Father, your ways are higher than my ways and your thoughts are higher than my thoughts. I have nothing to offer you.

.

.

Yet you choose me. You have not forgotten and and you will not. I have been engraved on your hand.

.

.

I am yours.

.

.

Thank you. Compel me to love the people around me when I want to drive them away because I don't feel I am enough.

.

.

I am not enough. But you are enough. And am all I need to be in you.

.

.

Child. Protected. Loved. Engraved. I belong.

In you. 

Isaiah 49

Stayed

Father, thank you that you are a strong city, a strong tower to me. Thank you that you surround me with your protection. You battle for me. 

.

.

Thank you that perfect peace is there for me when I purposefully place my mind on you. Help me to remember that in my mind is a battle for your truth and the enemies lies. Strengthen me for that battle. 

.

.

Help me to stay my mind on you. Give me a steadfast mind and heart.

.

.

Because of who you are and all the ways you have been faithful in my life, I *know* that I can trust you completely.

.

.

You are my trustworthy Father and I can steady my mind on that promise.

Isaiah 26

Your voice

Father, you are filled with glory and strength.

.

.

How mighty is the voice of the LORD. All creation was spoken into being.

.

.

With. Your. Voice.

.

.

Creation cannot help but to obey your every word.

.

.

I want my response to be obedience. Just at the sound of your voice. I long to hear your voice. .

.

You sit as King enthroned above all.

.

.

Over all the raging of the sea and the flooding waters, you speak peace.

Psalm 29

Love

Father, that I may know and believe the love you have for me.

.

.

I catch myself time and time again striving and working for that love. I long to know you as a Father who loves without condition and without any requirements. That you care for me without limit. I have missed it for so long.

.

.

Teach me to abide in your love and have no fear. I know when I am perfected in love, my understanding will be deepened and fear will have no place.

.

.

Perfect your love in me. Thank you that I can love you because you loved me first. Thank you that my love will overflow into the world around me. Give me the depths of this understanding.

1 John 4

His pleasure

Father, thank you that it is you who works in me, that my will and my work will be for your pleasure.

.

.

Thank you that I can put no confidence in my flesh and what I am able to do, but that all my confidence is on your Holy Spirit to lead me and in Christ Jesus, who redeemed me.

.

.

Help me to take this truth and make it my own. To press on toward the goal, for the prize of the upward call.

.

.

Thank you that because I know who you are and who I am in you, I can rejoice in you.

Philippians 2 & 3
