Dear Lord,

I long to find You – but You already have found me. I strive to see You – but You already are looking at me through loving eyes. I want to touch You – but You already are embracing me. I work to be good enough for You – but You already love me just as I am.

Lord, help me experience how it always starts with You. How You already have given me – are giving me – all I want, all I need and all I could ever hope for. And how all of this happens because of the reality of Your grace.

So today, Lord, let me praise You. Let me glorify You. And let me give You thanks. So that I will be filled to overflowing with the joy, passion, purpose, generosity, compassion and hope with which You have created me to live.

In Jesus’ name.
