Dear Lord,

Today I will experience joy, wonderful moments and signs of hope. They may be brief and fleeting: perhaps even bookmarked by pain and uncertainty. But they will be there, because You are always there.

Help me realize that each of these special moments is a gift of Your love, the power of Your presence is in my life and evidence of Your heart’s wish for me.

Use these moments to fill me completely, touch me deeply and allow me to linger in Your embrace all day long. But just as importantly, plant them in my soul as a foretaste of life with You forever more.
