I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.
Dear Gracious Father,
I am so thankful that you accept me for who I am. I am thankful that you receive me despite of my sin and short comings. Father I am glad that you aren't irritated with me or angry with me or tired of me. You accept me and bring me along as a child of God. When I stumble you reach down with your Almighty hand and you shower down your blessings on me. You are a Good God. You are such a Good God. You are so kind.
I know that because of The Wonderful Cross, my eternal hope is safe within your most Holy name.
My redemption lives stronger and stronger because of the strength I receive in Jesus name from you and through you. I see it now Lord that I was made for You. To tell Your story, and to bring you glory in all that I do.
I know that I am not perfect. But your perfect love surrounds me and covers me. You chose to love me not only despite of my imperfections, but because of them. You not only love me despite of my weaknesses, but because of them. You not only love me despite of my doubt, but because of it. You accept me in my rash of selfishness and even with all of my insecurities. You accept me and Lord I thank you everyday for caring for me. Thank you Lord that you chose to disciple me.
You carry me and you lead me on through life's journey. The living Christ in me makes it possible. Christ in me. Without Christ I am nothing. Christ breaks all strongholds. Christ in me encourages others, Christ in me alone is more than enough and will ever be. Christ in me.
So come and empty me, So that it's you I breathe, I want my life to be Only Christ in me. So I will fix my eyes, cause you're my source of life, I need the world to see, That it's Christ in me, That it's Christ in me….
