“How kind the Lord is! How good He is, so merciful, this God of ours.”
“I love you Lord, for your mercy never fails me
All my days, I’ve been held in Your hands
From the moment that I wake up
Until I lay my head
Oh, I will sing of the goodness of God”
As you take a breath this morning you breathe in life from the creator, the very breath he gave you to breathe , to move and have your being.
It begins here. His goodness in us.
Let gratefulness well up inside you for all of the goodness of God in your life.
For He has made His dwelling place in you.
Pause to pray and give thanks;
“Lord we give back to you all that you had given to us.
Our very life and mission on earth.
You alone are good and we find all that we need in you.
We receive your Holy Spirit of might to live the way you have called us to.
For you have promised to give us the spirit to empower us to live a larger life.
Help us to step into this expansive space that feels a bit scary at times.
To trust you in the unknown and believe that your word is true,
and will come to pass. You will be with us to the ends of the earth.
Let us live and love largely in the impossible situations we face today.
May we trust you always and love you deeply with a grateful heart.
Give us eyes to see your beauty and goodness in the world, the wonderful, amazing work of your hands,so that we may co-create with you beauty and goodness too.
We pray for the weak to receive your power and strength to believe that you will pull them up and give them the ability to hope, pray and live larger than their circumstances. Let them know that you are their defense, their strength and salvation.Ex.15:2
May we be your hands and feet today to show your goodness to all.
In the beautiful name of Jesus we pray.
