Lord,

You’ve given me so much. A beautiful world in which to live. People who enrich every single day. Grace that is amazing and unending. And salvation, healing and hope through Jesus.  

And I am grateful beyond words.

But sometimes I get it all wrong. I’m too timid. Try too hard to be perfect. Do everything possible to do it on my terms. And fail to trust You fully.

And that just doesn’t work.

 So today, Lord, may I embrace Your gift on Your terms. Cherish it. Celebrate it. Share it. And give You all praise, honor and glory in the strong name of Jesus!

Amen.
