You Are

You, O Lord, are my lamp;

turning darkness into light.

You grant me steady ground;

so I may stand on new heights.

Your word, Lord, is flawless;

and perfect are all Your ways.

In You, I take refuge;

my Shield for all of my days.

For You alone are God,

the Rock on which I will stand.

The One who clears my path,

grants strength to trust all Your plans.

May my feet stay steady,

and my heart be ever true;

for only by Your grace,

will I learn to lean on You.

(Responding to David’s Song of Praise in 2 Samuel, verses 29-34)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You are.  Thank You that for me, the depth and breadth of Your love and grace has become even more clear as I have navigated these past eleven years through motherhood.  Though I understood my need for You prior, it has become magnified, as we raise our two treasures.  Thank You that You are the One who lights our path, grants us steady ground, and provides place of refuge when the storms rage.  Thank You for my mother and grandmother, who both model dependence on You.  Thank You for the godly women in my world whose voices encourage and guide me to grow closer to You.  Forgive us for not always giving credit where it is due, and may we cherish and honor these blessings from You.  May mothers everywhere know the gift that You have created them to be, and may hearts hear all that You have for them.  Amen.

Happy Mother’s Day, treasured friends! Emoji
