My Everything

   Lord, You are my everything. You are my hope and strength. You are my morning and my night. You are the Healer of my hurt. You are the Savior of my life. You have made me new. You have given me joy and purpose.
   I am constantly in awe of you, God. You're beautiful. You're more than I can even imagine. You are the Creator of the universe. You are the wellspring of life and peace. There is nothing you cannot do. Your power is made perfect in our weaknesses. I have plenty of weakness, but I am glad, because through them others will see You, Lord.
   "And He said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.' Therefore most gladly I will boast my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me." (2 Corinthians 12:9)
   I pray Your power rest upon me, God. I want others to see what You do. Come in me. I want to be known for knowing and loving You. You are my Teacher, so teach me to be more like You. Help me to love the way You love.
   I will not be silent about Your wondrous ways. There is no other way to explain how I was saved, but through You, Jesus. You took my broken life and raised me up. Thank You for rescuing me. I will praise You forevermore. I will testify to Your glories. You reign, Lord, and all will soon see.
   "Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in Heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." (Philippians 2:9-10)
   You are Father to the fatherless, Peace to the restless, and Hope to the hopeless. For You, God, are the One true living King of all kings. Let Your glory shine before all men, so that they will come to know You. You are the Great I Am. Nothing else maters, but You, Lord. I will live for You, and only You. Help me to keep my focus on You, because when my focus is on You, nothing can make me anxious. I know You are my Provider, and You won't let harm come to me. I put my faith in You, God.

   -The Introverted Evangelist
