And He said, “My Presence will go with you,
to the garden where You cried
the rock where You bore my stripes
up the hill You struggled to walk
show me the cross where You died.
Jesus, reveal Your resurrection power
at the place where hell was conquered
into the tomb that is empty because
You brought life through victory.
Lord, as my eyes focus on You
my heart only knows gratitude
from the chains You’ve set me free
I’m humbled, grateful for the depth
of Your love for me.

God, I am humbled. Humbled for the many years of life You have given
me. How can I truly thank You? I am grateful, so very thankful Lord,
for the numerous second chances You have held out to me. I did not
deserve any of them but in Your mercy You imparted them to me anyway.
Your love and grace feel like whispered kisses on my face and I only
desire to serve You from now until the day You decide to carry me Home.
Lord, I want to know You, learn about You, recognize You in everything,
learning Your will and Your ways in my life.
I pray for each person that is reading this that they will also fix
their eyes on You. That they will focus solely on You and Your leading
in their lives. May they seek You with their whole hearts. Lead them to
Your holy haven so they may worship You in spirit and truth for all of
You are amazing Lord! Thank You for Gethsemene,
Calvary, Your Resurrection, and Heaven’s resting place. Lord, lead us to
Your cross where we can lay our sins and burdens to rest at Your feet
and lead us beside the still waters of Your presence that will go with
us through every circumstance that we face.
In Jesus’ most precious name, Amen.
