Dearest Lord,

You have created the universe in its vastness – yet love me as Your precious child. You have called all of your creation good – yet love me when I reject who I really am. You have given the gift of freedom – yet love me even as I walk away from You.

Thank You! For love that makes me unique. Love that is never diminished by what I may do. Love that calls me to a special purpose. And love that lasts for eternity.

May I be filled with this love. Transformed by it. Fulfilled in it. Share it in ways that make real differences in the lives of real people. And love You more with each breath I take.

I pray this in the strong name of Jesus.
