When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God's love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might as or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.
I saw this passage referenced on our pastor's facebook status this morning, and I just had to go read it. Of course, it touched me as it probably touches everybody who reads it or prays it. I'm just thanking God for his infinite love that provides me with inner strength today. Without that strength, I'm afraid this house would be in more of an uproar than it already is.
So God, I'm trusting you to remake this day. Or change my attitude so that this day and everybody else in it doesn't affect what you have planned for me. Thank you for my beautiful, healthy children, our home, and all the love you have for us. In Jesus name, Amen.
