Every Time

Dear God,

Thank you for EVERYTHING! I even thank You for the pits of life because if it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t know how to get out. You lead the way EVERY TIME and there is no better place but Your presence. It’s in the light of Your love.

I can worship here.

I can be myself here.

I can laugh here.

I can cry here.

I can vent here until every negative word vanishes from my mind.

I can be real with You because You know me.

I can hold myself knowing You are teaching me and guiding me to be a better version of me.

Even when I feel like I’m running on empty You find a way to replenish my soul—every time.

I find my strength in You.

I find a way through You.

I find the thoughts through Your Word.

I find the peace in the quietness of the days that You give me to sit in silence.

It’s uncluttered and empty of the worlds busy pace.

Here I find You.

Here I see You.

Here I hear You.

And I listen… I listen intently as You keep reminding me of something so dear and that is Your nearness.

As I go closer to You—You match it!

And even if I didn’t, You find me to match it anyway. How thoughtful, how mindful and how great that You are.

You’re just trying to get me to that place where I am still in You, settled in You, safe in You, sound in You, secure in You, seasoned in You.

You know it all and got it all.

Every time…

All I need is You Lord.

All I need is allof You.

That works very well.

My soul knows that very well.

Thank you God.

Amen and Amen.

The Lord is my strength and shield.
I trust Him with all my heart.
He helps me and my heart is filled with joy.
Psalm 28:7
