Grateful to be His

Some days I am just grateful to be His.
There are ins and outs and ups and downs
and a person could just about go crazy
trying to figure it all out.
But because I am His, 
I am able to go up and see differently.
I turn my heart toward His face
and separate my thoughts 
into distinct categories: 
"just like His" and "not even."
I don't have to get swept up into the swirl.
I have His word, His promises and His truth.
He comes along side me 
and tells me to breathe in 
the air of His peace.
He is ever present, always with me.
He knows everything about me
 and places His hand 
of blessing on me anyway.

Lord, you have examined my heart
and know everything about me.
You know everything I do.
You go before me and follow me.
You place Your hand of blessing 
on my head.
Psalm 139

Lord, thank You for Your great love.
Thank You that You are not a distant god, 
but You are Immanuel, God who is near.

The LORD your God is with you,
He creates calm with his love;
He rejoices over you with singing.
Zephaniah 3:17
I love that You "create calm" with love.
I love that You sing to me.
And rejoice over me.
How awesome is it to think about that?
"Such knowledge is too wonderful for words."
You are always drawing me into Your atmosphere-- 
where there is no anxiety, doubt, swirl or frustration.
You give me Your abundant life.
You give me Your peace.
I want to give back to You
an offering for all You give to me.
It is nothing less than my whole life.
