Lord, it is always the best to come to You to say thank You - EVEN WHEN We are beset or laid low or anxious or depressed or angry or whatever. Why? Because We can still FEEL You with Us and don't lose that priceless connection. I thank You that You are always near us and help Us get through the tough times and comfort Us and strengthen Us through anything out there. You love Us at our worst and love Us still when We do Our worst. I used to think Lord that You would only like Me if I did everything right or that You would disapprove of so many things in My life. i suspected a lot of things but what a blessed relief to know firmly now that that was My old way of thinking without You and before I got to know who You are and what you are like. In the past, i turned My back on You, used You for help and advice, did the same thing over and over and thought of You as if You were One of Us. But, Your thinking is way above Ours and You see Us as dearly loved children who need Your help.
Lord, I also used to think that i had everything sussed and planned out! But now I say for Us All - YOUR WILL BE DONE for I know after much thinking and debating and hesitating and resistance that You are always right and always know the best way to go. I used to think I could only trust You with small things but You demonstrated that I could trust You IN ALL THINGS.
I know that I came to You yesterday angry and blurted out some statements, but it is just so good to know that You SEE and HEAR what is going on and wanted to help Me. I lay in bed last night still huffy and so on and was enjoying My book - You asked Me to put it down and talk a while and we did and You took all My disturbed emotions and thoughts out of Me and gave Me back My determination and happiness and vision again. You helped Me understand why it had happened and to let it go for the greater good. I haven't always understood many things about You, but I have always adored You and You called Me in love and forgiveness. For Me, this IS My backbone of faith. It connects to everything and brings it all together. It gives mobility and meaning.
It is written 'I have loved You with an everlasting love. I have drawn you with loving kindness' and You are always, always good to Your Word. You have indeed drawn us to You by who You are and Your love will never run out. You loved Us just as much yesterday as today and tomorrow despite what we do or how We feel - this is the truth. God's honest Truth. Thank You, Father. Thank You, Christ for what you are in My life and Your hope which goes on and on, just liked Your love. Amen.
