I love you, Lord, my strength. – (Psalm 18:1, NIV)
I love you, Lord! You are my strength. – (Psalm 18:1, ERV)
I love you, God – You make me strong. – (Psalm 18:1, MSG)
My unplanned, unscheduled, meant-to-be-relaxing spring break, has become a project-completing, list-checking, errand-running, constantly on-the-go, sort of week. Even my intent to sleep in a bit, has been thwarted by opportunities to get in early morning runs. Though it is not what I envisioned, I would not have it any other way. God is good, and He knows what we need. Strength has been supplied and each day is surrendered to Him. May we ever seek the Lord in love, as He is our strength and Source of all that we need.
The strength of the Lord,
He ever provides;
He meets us each day,
With arms open wide.
His grace is enough,
For all we need do;
As His love surrounds,
Supporting us through.
I love the Lord God,
And ever give praise;
For His strength and love,
Throughout all my days.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for Your strength in all things. Thank You for Your unending love that empowers us to love as well. Forgive us for neglecting to give You thanks and praise for the seemingly small things. Show us how to recognize Your ongoing provision throughout each day. Help us to love those around us in a way that strengthens and lifts others up. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we love You and praise You for being the strength to those who surrender to You. Amen.
You are my strength, I sing praise to You; You, God, are my fortress, my God on whom I can rely. – Psalm 59:17
