I praise you, my Heavenly Father, for your steadfast, unwavering love and goodness. I am so much the opposite: my emotions are up and down; my sense of achievement and worth waver; my happiness with myself fluctuates with what I perceive to be success or failure: my feelings change with how people interact with me, with how well I sleep and even with my dreams.
But you, Lord God, have made yourself my Rock, my stability. You are my Protector, my Fortress, my Forgiver, my Father. I praise you for the whole-hearted, deep and full acceptance you have given me in Christ.
I thank you for the gracious correction, the loving help, the continual support from your glorious riches, from your constant presence, your protection and provision. You have given me my place in the universe.
In you I am forgiven; in you I am being transformed; in you I am on the upward journey to heaven; in you I have worth and meaning and unfailing love.
