The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need. He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams. He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name. (Psalm 23:1-3)
Thank you for your gracious, generous love. You provide for me continually in ways I can recognize and in some ways that I will never know what you’ve done. Any peace or rest I have is because of your mercy and grace. I could never repay you for all that you’ve done. Thank you for loving me more than I deserve.
Father, please teach me to trust in you as my shepherd. Please help me to follow wherever you lead me. There are times when I have been stubborn and not followed you. Forgive me for the times I have strayed from your path. Please give me a heart that longs for your leadership. Please give me the discernment to know your will and the perseverance to hold tight to you no matter what I face. Please teach me to delight in your presence.
May my choices honor you and draw others to you.
In Jesus’ name,
