Resting in God

Dear God,

When I rest in Your grace, just being quiet in Your presence, I am rewarded with a mellow feeling of Your Love.  I sense the “peace that passeth understanding.” 

Keep my mind and heart close to You today, as every day.  I give myself to You without reserve and without conditions.

Thank You for staying near, living through me with the assurance that all is well.

Amen.

Loving God

Dear God,

This morning before I got up I thought about You, and I understood that I really, really LOVE You!  Some of my affection is because I have proof, at least to my mind and heart, that You are helping me so often.  You never give up on any of us.

I got frustrated with You this weekend, but I know You are big enough to handle that.  I honestly confessed to You how I was feeling, and then I re-surrendered.  Peace then reigned.

I want to move ever more closely into Your circle.  You enfold us with Your grace.  You are here for us.

Thank You.

Amen.

Embed in Us the Solace of Perfect Grace

Dear God,

I have been saying a variant of this lovely sentence from Choose Only Love as a mantra this morning: “Embed in yourself the solace of perfect grace.”  The words soothe my heart, bless my person, give me the understanding that You are always near, living through me.

These difficult times are when we truly know that we need You.  Thank You for Your presence.

Amen.
