“God, You totally amaze me with the fact that You are Holy and yet You love me who is so imperfect. You love me so much that you sent Your Son, Jesus, to die for my imperfections…my sinfulness. I thank You that You are ALWAYS with me. Your presence surrounds me as well as Your Holy Spirit is in me. You are actually enthroned by my praises. Psalm 22:3 says, “3Yet you are holy, enthroned on the praises of Israel.” You are a God who never changes, so not only Israel’s praises enthrone You, but mine as well, Your child. I praise You that You are a personal God and are able to speak to me as an individual. Thank You that You are active in my life and are not a god of wood or stone that cannot hear me. My prayers and praises give You unhindered freedom to show me Your power in my life and specific situations that I am in.
I praise You for who You are, as well as what You do. I thank You, God, for loving a little person like me. I thank You that you actually enjoy fellow-shipping with me and want me to come to You as often as possible. You really do love being with me. God, I love being with You, too. Help me to keep that attitude and not pull away from You because I mess up sometimes. When I mess up, help me to come to You right away and confess the matter to You and seek Your forgiveness. I don’t want anything to get in the way of my closeness with You. What really amazes me is the fact that because I’ve put my trust in Jesus’ sacrifice and resurrection for me by faith, there is now NOTHING that can separate me from You and Your love for me. Yes, I must ‘fess up to You and repent, but You actually look at me through Jesus and what He did for me and see me now as holy and will for all eternity. THAT blows my mind, God. You are a Holy God, a forgiving God, a loving God and a personal God. I just wanted to say, ‘Thanks!”
