Lord, You have been with me since that sunny afternoon on a campus lawn when You made yourself known to me. You were with me in the heated arguments when the anger clouded my vision. You were with me when I was a mere lump of tears. You stood by me through the rebuilding. You sanctified me through your Word. You raised me to help others with the lessons of my past. You allowed me to see your Holy Spirit at work healing others like You healed me. You gave me a holy purpose and a better perspective. You gave me hope. Be glorified in the outcome, in your name and by your power, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.
“I will extol you, O Lord, for you have drawn me up and have not let my foes rejoice over me. O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me.” (Psalm 30:1-2 ESV)
