Oh Lord, thank You for this great life that You have prepared for me, even from the foundation of the world. You knew I would be living in darkness while seeking all the wrong things until I found You, but You never gave up hope in me. So many times did You come and convict me of my sins, in order to draw me unto You in repentance. I just didn’t listen and obey. In my early years, I was very defiant and reckless in my bad choices, because of the lusts of the flesh, but You continued to come after me anyways. Not once did You stop believing in the person I could become. I just needed to stop and believe in You. And so I finally listened and poured out my heart to You in prayer. In my confessions, the guilt was no longer hanging over me, but only Your love was there. I may have distanced myself from You, but in this moment You were drawn near to me, and my life has never been the same again. That one prayer has changed everything about how I live my life. Because You were there for me then, I knew that You would be with me now and forever. I don’t have to worry about having the guidance, and counsel that I need, for You deliver it to me daily. In prayer, You have spoken to me and breathed into me new life. If I am different, it is because the Holy Spirit is in me now, which is the comforter. Thank You, Lord. I give You glory and praise. I sing out to You and give You thanks because of Your mercy and grace. You are so good to me, God. I love You with all my heart, mind, and strength. I am strengthened, because of Your love in my life. It is a pleasure to offer You my life. What I do with my time now is to serve You and to proclaim the Name of Jesus to the world. Amen.
