Today’s Prayer (12/31/2019)

Oh Lord, there is no one like you in the heavens and earth below. While others may lift up their favorite sports athletes, music artists, movie or TV stars, I am happy to lift You up instead in praise. There is nobody I’d rather follow then in Your footsteps. Other people have let me down over time, but You have never forsaken me. I thought that the riches of this world could make me happy, but really it was only in the moments that I had the good in things in life that I found joy, but it all passed as the newness of the items wore off, and other better things came out that I wanted instead. So I was always left feeling ripped off and never fully satisfied with what I had in life. This is not the goodness that You give, oh Lord. For what You do for us is never-ending peace, strength, hope, love, joy, happiness, mercy, forgiveness, compassion, and kindness. I never have to worry about going to anyone else for things, for You are the giver of all good things. What the world wants to do for me and give me doesn’t even hold a candle of the types of things You have already done and will do for me, as I continue to trust in You. Therefore, I am so happy to say that my life is better than ever before. Because You are my shepherd, I am fed and nourished each day of my life. You have lifted me upon Your shoulders and given me strength like eagles. Therefore, my burdens are not only on my shoulders but Yours as well. Wow, You are so good, Lord. Thank You for all that You have done for me. I love You, God. I trust in You. All the praise and glory to Your mighty Name, who saves. Amen.
