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.
