I love You, Lord
And I lift my voice
To worship You, oh my soul, Rejoice.
Take joy my King, in what You hear
May it be a sweet, sweet sound in Your ears.
I come before you tonight, not on bended knee, but as I am. You see me. You see all of me, clearly, more so than all others. You see the hurt, fear, anger, jealousy, and shame I walk around with. You see all my flaws, for I cannot hide from You. You see the truth no matter how hard I try to shield it and in spite of all of this baggage, You love me. Pure, unrefined, whole love. A love like no other; the type that I can only get from You.
Abba, help me to remember that Your love for me is unwavering. Help me to see the beauty that lies within me, the beauty You placed there, for I am wonderfully and fearfully made. Help me to embrace all that I am because I am a reflection of You. But above all else, help me to remember that in times of self-doubt, sadness, uncertainty, confusion, or anger that You are with me making a way, You are beside me whispering “you are enough” and that by Your Will I will make it through. Grant me the peace that passes understanding this day, and all the days to come.
In the name of your Son Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.
