How can I ever thank you enough for all you’ve done for me and all that you continue to do? I woke up this morning with hands and feet that could move. Your peace surrounded me as I slept last night. Because you are Lord and you neither sleep nor slumber, I can lay down in safety and peace. I got up to a day filled with newness-new mercies and brand new grace. For that I say thank you, Lord. For your provision, your protection, your providence, your salvation, your companionship, and your counsel, I say thank you Lord! You are truly amazing! To know that the God who holds the entire universe together finds delight in me is incomprehensible.
I’m so grateful for an invitation that is always open to come unto You. If I’m weary or heavy laden, You offer me rest in exchange. You exchange my sickness for your health. I can find no greater exchange rate than you. Who else would take something of little worth in exchange for the invaluable gifts you offer? Although you’re always getting the short end of the stick, you stand ready and willing for me to bring you my load. When I’m brokenhearted, you’ll bind it up and make it whole again. That’s just what I need Lord, take the broken places in my life and put them all back together and make whole again. I can’t make sense of all the fragments but you are the Master Potter and I put them in your hands. I’ve grown tired, frustrated, and disappointed in my futile attempts to pull the pieces together. That was never the assignment you gave me anyway. So I cease from fruitless labor today. If there be anything that I labor to do today, it is to trust you more. I labor to know You more.
As families gather together over this Labor Day weekend, I pray that you’ll watch over their coming and going and that you would protect them. We welcome your Spirit to sit down in the midst of every gathering. Bring reconciliation and restoration to families I pray. For those who are gathering together in grief due to loss of love ones, I ask you to comfort their hearts Lord. Be strength for them in this difficult time and may those who are left behind that don’t know you come to know you. For it’s not your will that any should perish.
Let your will be done in the earth! Let your kingdom come! To you Lord be all the glory, dominion, and power. In Jesus name. Amen.
