I walk in ease when I remember that
You are the Author and Finisher of my faith,
I enjoy Your loving care and watchfulness
Over all I am and do
For You are: the Living Word,
The Almighty, My caring Shepherd
And my very Truth.
You are full of mercy and compassion
And a passion for Your own as no other.
You understand me as no one could
You are the most long-suffering Person
In my entire life with all of its
Twists and turns, bumps and bruises,
Tears and trials,
Pains and burdens ~
And yet You are my very JOY ~ without which
I would not experience any fresh strength!
Most of all, You are faithful in all Your love
And peace and goodness and so much more…
For You are my Savior and You are my graces upon grace.
I love You deeply for it all
And I repent ~ again and again for
The times I looked away ~
Seeming to forget just Who You Are ~
I weep at Your feet
Because of who I am when my eyes
Are not set steadfastly on You.
Then because of Who You Are,
You come to me with Your open arms
And invite me to rest my weary soul
Upon Your divine heart and
Once again, I realize with tears of JOY ~
Just Who You Are.
