Lord,

It’s a new day. And while I awaken with leftover stuff and unfinished business that troubles my soul, I also know I have what matters most of all: Your love. Your love that finds me where I am, surprises me again and again, and redesigns me so that I truly can live this day with joy.

Thank You from the depths of my soul. Help me articulate how I feel. With words, to be sure. But also with every thought I have, every attitude I cultivate and every single thing I do.

As I journey through this day, help me remember that You offer me the greatest love imaginable. Love that has claimed me. Love that has unshamed me. And love that renames me.

For this – and for so much more – I give You all praise, honor and glory.

Amen.
