Lord,

I know it’s almost always too little too late, but that doesn’t make it any less true. I am grateful beyond my ability to express it for Your love in Jesus that embraces me before I know it, is always at work and remains faithful regardless of what I do.  

This amazing grace touches me in a myriad of ways. Through family members who embrace me when I am at my worst. Special people who enrich my life in just the ways I need. Times when I am privileged to serve others. Forgiveness when I have messed up. Healing that surprises me when I am broken. And even painful moments that lead to growth.  

May my thanks and praise for You flow from the core of my being with every breath I take – and keep growing for all eternity.

I pray this in the strong name of Jesus.

Amen.
