“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” (Philippians 4:8)
Lord, even if I could go a day without physically sinning — oh how my thoughts would betray me! I can’t go even an hour without sinning against you, particularly with all of my anxious, angry thoughts. Forgive me, Father. Purify me, purify my mind. Take out the bad and refill me with your Word. Fill me with Scripture, let it stay in my mind and linger in my heart. Wash me and I will be made clean, you promise that Lord — please, cleanse my mind!
20. Thank You. Again. Always.
“Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians 5:18)
Lord, thank you. Thank you that you have never left my side today, not for a second. I know I may not feel your presence, but I know the truth: you are always here for me, you are always with me. Lord, I could not have done what I did today without you. All my successes are by your grace. All my failures teach me to cling to you. All my sorrows draw me into your arms. All my joys pour over to bless others. Help me Lord, each day, to put you above all. In Jesus’ precious name I pray, Amen.
