Creator God Saving Jesus Loving Spirit
You made me in your image and saw that it was very good. I know that I’m fearfully and wonderfully made, and that you love me forever. You’ve given me gifts and passions that bring me alive as I serve you and others.
Continue to reveal to me how I can collaborate with you to usher in your kingdom of love, grace, truth and peace. Help me to say no to what may be a good thing that I might have the time and energy to say yes to the right thing.
And when I get it wrong, thinking I can pack more things in a day than I reasonably can, please help me to show grace to myself and to others, and to learn from my mistakes. I want to understand my limitations, acknowledging that you are God and I am not.
I wonder at your gifts! Thank you for sharing them with me, creating me a unique individual.
Spur me on to love and good deeds today, Lord, that I might serve you joyfully, knowing that you work in and through me, to your glory and my good.
