An example of lifting my soul to God, written a number of years ago during a difficult time.
Praise you, Lord, for your gracious work in my life: my miserable life on a human level, my wonderful life in you. Thank you that you are working on raising me to a higher level, leading me upward and onward, out of the swamp of my natural self into the light and lushness of your green pastures, into your powerful, positive presence.
I thank you for my unwanted circumstances, Lord, for the dreaded that I have to do, and the desired I’m unable to do. You know what is best, what is right and will bring it to me.
I give you praise now, O Triune God, for your wisdom, love, goodness and power. You, my Heavenly Father, watch over me and bring into my life the challenges and opportunities I need.
I praise you, Lord Jesus, that you are the great Heavenly Shepherd, leading me in the proper paths, carrying me through disagreements and difficulties, through my poor choices and out the other side into the goodness you have for us. I praise you for your good and gracious presence at all times, for your bringing me through when life is too much for me.
You, Holy Spirit, are my Heavenly Teacher, my present Transformer, seeking to bring me to an ever higher level of life with you.
Praise you, O Triune God, that you are the One I can trust in the midst of my present uncertainty and difficulties. You are my Heavenly Protector, blocking what is harmful, allowing what is edifying. So I can now give you honor and praise now before any of this is worked out, for you are gracious, great and good, full of power, positiveness and love.
Thank you now for how you will help me today to do all the things that you desire, to make decisions based on what is best, not just on what I’d like. Give me wisdom in how to proceed and what to accomplish. Help me to live the truth that Knowing Jesus Is Enough for Joy, Period
