Lord Jesus, you are the peace that passes all understanding. You are the rock upon which I build my foundation. You are the value and the purpose of my being. You are my all in all. I find no greater joy than spending time at your feet like Mary, learning all I can about you and your teaching. Thank you for pulling me from the fire by your name and powerful authority, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.” (Philippians 3:7-8a ESV)
