a morning prayer


Rejoice always and delight in your faith; be unceasing and persistent in prayer; in every situation, no matter the circumstance, be thankful and continually give thanks to God; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.

I Thess. 5:16-18 

Lord, on this new day, I want to rejoice that I’m yours. I want to delight, my heart warmed at your unexpected love for me, full of grateful prayer as I move through every situation, no matter the circumstance. I want to be thankful, resting as a very small child before her omniscient Father, safe, armed by sure belief that each situation is your will for me in Christ Jesus.

I want to rejoice,  delight,  pray. I want to be continually thankful, all because I’m your child, and you are good.

I want to be nowhere else.



About Jill

I'm a wife, mom to three beautiful children, and work as children's ministry director at Redeemer PCA in Athens, GA, a place our family treasures as our church home. It's been thirty years since the Lord saved me, and to this day I'm astounded at His steadfast love shed upon unfaithful me. My hope would be that I might speak and write in ways God would use to soften hearts toward Him, that we would together be enamored by the glorious beauty of Jesus and awakened to His love unimagined. Thanks so much for reading!
