Birthday Blessings and a Prayer

Life. It’s a gift. In this vast universe and with billions of people on this planet, I am here. A speck of dust but a miracle nonetheless. I don’t have anything but a heart of gratitude for the life given to me today.

Lord, thank you for this day
A special day to rededicate myself to you
That I may be ready to face another year
Of joy, of miracles, and of faith.
Show me Your ways
That I may live a life that pleases You
A life that blesses others
A life that continuously gives.
Make me offer compassion
In all the things I do
Help me to see Your goodness
In things that others do.
Lord, thank you for creating me
For giving me a family to love
You surround my life with blessing
With You, I lack nothing.
Teach me faithfulness
That I may walk with You always.
Teach me patience
That I may learn to wait on You always.
Teach me courage
That I may trust You always.
Teach me to love
And love, and love and love.

It’s no wonder that the God who made the heavens and the earth also created a miracle in me. He knew me even before I was formed (Jeremiah 1:5). Praise God. The works of His hands are marvelous. This life, this blessed life He gives me is something I will every day be thankful for.

Always grateful,
