Lord, even though you knew I would complain, curse, have a bad attitude and be tempted to grow weary with doing good today, You still woke me up. In spite of my potential to add to the negativity of world, You saw my potential to add positivity. You still chose me to be Your hands and feet on the earth. Lord, I’m amazed at Your ability to see the good in me. Every day that You give me breath, You give me a chance to be the person that You know I can be. I can’t adequately express my gratitude. Thank you, Lord, for Your mercy and love endures forever.
I woke up this morning with so much anger and frustration. I wanted to cry, scream at the top of my lungs and demand a reason for why I have to be tested this way. I suppressed my urge to have a full blown, adult temper tantrum and remembered that God is good. He has never left my side and there’s certainly no reason for me to believe He will leave me now. I serve a faithful, loving God. I may not understand His ways but I can always count on His love. He has everything under control. I just need to trust Him.
Thank You, Lord, for Your grace and mercy. Thank You for loving me even in the middle of a temper tantrum. Thank You for molding me into a better person and strengthening my faith. Thank You for Your peace and guidance during any kind of storm. I know the One who stands beside me and He is God Almighty.
“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His love endures forever.” Psalm 136:1 NIV
