Thank You so much for all you have done in my life and the lives of those around me. I see Your redemption everywhere. It is absolutely amazing to see the darkness that You save people from every day. I have experienced it personally so I know it’s true and I know it is all You.
Just today I spoke to a friend who has been saved from heroin and pill addiction and is rebuilding her life in California. I also learned about someone who was healed from HIV after having it for ten years. Then you helped her find a job and a home.
Not only do You heal people and save us from bondage and addiction, but You also give us new life and a new way to live. You not only renew our minds, purify our hearts, and refresh our spirits, You make sure we have homes and food and clothes as well. You provide all of our needs from the grand spiritual needs to the very practical physical needs. It is amazing how You care about Your children in such a specific way. When You provide, You don’t just provide for our needs, but for a lot of our wants as well, and You always go above and beyond what we ever thought possible.
I thank You so much for all the people that You save from terrible circumstances and bring into beautiful new life with You. I thank You for the peace, love, joy, and blessings You provide. I thank You for washing away the sins and the muck of the past and letting us stand before You pure, righteous, redeemed and restored.
Many people, myself included, have trouble finding worth in themselves after they have been brought low in life. You, God, give us worth and value. You show us that we are not only worth dying for, but worth living for and loving every minute. You give love to the unloved, You set the captives free, You clothe the naked and feed the hungry.
Your mercy and grace are endless, Your love unconditional. I am awed by what You have done for me and continue to do and what You do for all who call on You. Thank You God for lavishing this love on us. Thank You for setting me free, and then building me up and teaching me. Thank You for never letting go and for never giving up. Everything that I am is Yours. Please use me to continue spreading the good news of Your awesome redemptive powers and the beautiful life people can have when they surrender all to You.
Your blessed and highly favored daughter,
