God have mercy on me…a lowly sinner.

God have mercy on me…a lowly sinner. I fall short everyday of my life. And everyday of my life I need your mercy and your grace in order to live. When I consider it all, I am completely awestruck that You would choose to cover my transgressions. I am filled with gratitude that Your choice to send Christ Jesus to be the sacrificial payment for all my sin—-Your choice—has given me life with You eternally. I am completely amaaaaaaaaaaazed in the truth of Your compassion. I am so thankful that You don’t give up on me. And I am even more thankful that You don’t.

I will never in my life forget the moment when it truly occurred to me how long You had waited for my talk and my walk to line up. Oh how LONG You waited for my head knowledge and my heart knowledge to be bound together. You poured Yourself out upon me that day in a way that I will never forget. It sustains me through trials. Keep me, Father, in remembrance of Your power and Your love for me (and all of us whom You created). May my heart be so one with You that people  have to seek You in order to find who I really am. And may everyone You send my way–encounter Your love through me. Let there be something truly different about me. And may that “different something” intrigue people…and cause them to hunger and thirst for You. What an honor it is to serve You!

Wash me Lord. Cleanse me. When I become engulfed in ponderings of past transgressions, remind me that those memories, though painful, help me to be a better person now and going forward. Help me, too, in reminding me that You have chosen to remember my sins no more. Your mercies are new every morning. Thanks be to YOUUUUUU, Lord. All my thanks to You!

All the power and all the glory and all honor is owed to You. Help me, Lord, to magnify Your greatness with a life well lived in Christ.

Thank you Lord, in Christ Jesus’ name I pray!
Amen.
