Dear Lord,

Some days life is exciting, wonderful and joyful. Others it’s painful, difficult and overwhelming. But mostly it’s just routine, mundane and normal.

On good days we praise You. On painful days we call out to You. But most days we only think about You occasionally.

Lord, we know You are with us every day. Reaching out to us. Entering into our lives. Filling us to overflowing with Your unconditional love. Calling us to live Your purpose for our lives. Challenging us to be the people You have created us to be. And we are so grateful.

But mostly, Lord, we thank You for simply journeying through life with us. Day by day. Week by week. Year by year. Because this means we already have everything we need.

Amen.
