I lift up my eyes to you, to you who sit enthroned in heaven.
Heavenly Father, you are enthroned upon my heart. I’m consumed with desire—a longing to touch what is unseen, yet real. So incredibly real. You are the profound truth that guides me and purifies my motives. You absorb my failings and grant me unending mercy. You are love. When you speak, my heart comes alive. When you whisper, my soul finds peace. You are the breath that pushes me forward and the grace I discover each day.
There’s a fire burning deep within, ignited by your touch. I want to know you. To honor you. To please you with a life of unrelenting devotion. I want to discover the secrets that you’ve hidden for me to find. I want to be pure in heart. I want to see you. This beating in my chest tells me it’s not too late. You are imminent. You are near. I love you Lord! Teach me to live one day at a time,
enjoying one moment at a time,
accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it, trusting that You will make all things right, if I surrender to Your will, so that I may be happy in this life, and supremely happy with You forever in the next.
In Jesus Name, Amen.”
