Praise be to you, Lord God, for the privilege of waking up and knowing that I am at peace with you, that our relationship is good, grace-filled and gloriously positive.
Thank you for your wonderful unmerited love, ever flowing to me, over me, around me, as well as going before me. Therefore I can rest in your gentle power, your marvelous majesty, your wide and deep wisdom. I can rest in your wide plans, your deep purposes, your plenteous provision. You are the great God of goodness, the wonderful God of meaning, the strong God of hope. In you I have a future, a stability, a purpose.
These are all by-products of your much more significant gift to us: a rich, warm, enthusiastic relationship with you, filled with delight, love and joy. Peace reigns as a I rest in you. Grace flows as I embrace humility. Joy deepens as I move forward in eager submission to your wisdom, to your Word and to your ways.
Praise be to you, Lord, the great Triune God, marvelous in majesty, great in grace and caring in compassion. You have made yourself my Father, my Savior, my King and my Shepherd. In you alone is rest, for we were made to be in you.
Help me to be in submission and sync with you all through this day, Lord, living in the light of your Word, in the direction of your Spirit and in the wisdom of your understanding. I praise you now for what you will do, for how you will use me, for all that you will bring into my life today.
