I was sitting here in the quiet this morning and looking out the window at the snow and ice, and checking out our son’s online prayer journal. Here is the last entry he made before he died in 2006. It’s my worship today since church was cancelled.
“Father, thank You for a brand new day. I come to You through Jesus today to say thank You for who You are. I pray that You will put a new song in my heart today and allow me to sing it all day long. I praise You today for I am fearfully and wonderfully made in Your image. You are a great God, great in mercy and mighty to save. Thank You for rescuing me from myself and from the weight of my sin. Help me to keep in step with Your Spirit today. Help me to walk in obedience today, Jesus. Give me strength to throw off the things that hinder me. Continue to grant me insight into Your scripture and open my eyes to the wonder of You. Father, help me to know You more today.”
We miss you, Colby.
