I have so much to be thankful for - but so rarely do I acknowledge Your blessings in my life. Thank you for today. Thank you for salvation. Thank you for my faithful, devoted husband – my best friend, my confidant. Thank you for my family – for a mother who always answer the phone when I really need her. For a father whose prayers I feel from miles away. Most importanly, thank-you for forgiveness.
Please forgive me for my many failures. Forgive me for doubting You. Forgive me for doubting that You will work a miracle in my life. Forgive me for questioning this path. Help me to see with Your eyes – help me to understand with Your understanding. Silence the echoes of despair and uncertainty that resonate in my core. Forgive my selfishness and impatience. Forgive my controlling spirit. Forgive me for thinking of myself before the needs of others. Forgive me for being so much like me and so little like You.
I believe in Your word. I believe that you want to bless me. I believe that you will not give me more than I can take and that You are always here with me: loving me, comforting me, surrounding me with Your grace and mercy. How I long for the faith of a mustard seed and pray for understanding during this trial.
Thank you for loving me in spite of myself.
