Good Morning Lord. I come to You today with a heart filled with gratitude. Some days I get overwhelmed that You call me your child. I know I am so unworthy, so your grace and love completely astound me. I so appreciate the fact that You would even bother to hear my prayers. Yet, You go far beyond listening to answering in miraculous ways. Situations that seem impossible are never impossible with You. Usually You are just waiting for me to surrender my desires to You so that You can take over and do the “impossible.” I have seen it over and over again. Thank You for the most recent miracle—for working in a heart of a loved one that seemed beyond help. You are surely a very present help in trouble, and I love to watch You transform troubled lives. You did it for me, and I’ve watched You do it over and over through the years. At this point, I know nobody is hopeless as long as they have breath. It always helps that they have people praying for them and surrendering them to You. I have had to let my loved ones go many times, but every time I’ve released them to You, the outcome has been good in the long run. You manage to use their own rebellion and obstinacy to bring them around. Thank You! Life has been hard for me, but in the midst of suffering You have been so faithful and so real. The answered prayers have been incredible. What a legacy of faith You have given me. Without the struggles, I never would have learned how wonderful You are. Therefore, I am grateful for the trials. Thank You for never letting me go! Amen

 

Child you have my promise of blessing, because you trust in Me. This is your legacy.

Psalm 112

Praise the Lord! Happy are those who fear the Lord, who greatly delight in his commandments.Their descendants will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed.  Wealth and riches are in their houses, and their righteousness endures forever. They rise in the darkness as a light for the upright; they are gracious, merciful, and righteous. It is well with those who deal generously and lend, who conduct their affairs with justice. For the righteous will never be movedthey will be remembered forever. They are not afraid of evil tidings; their hearts are firm, secure in the Lord. Their hearts are steady, they will not be afraidin the end they will look in triumph on their foes. They have distributed freely, they have given to the poor; their righteousness endures forever; their horn is exalted in honor. The wicked see it and are angry; they gnash their teeth and melt away; the desire of the wicked comes to nothing.
