Lord, I am grateful ~
Grateful and glad that You are
The total full-meal deal.
Your shed blood has covered my sins
Totally—Past, Present and Future.
Your love is total—not dependent on
My performance, behavior, attitude,
Mood, or vacillating level of faith;
You love me when I’m dragging—
Filled with angry hurt, frustration.
You possess total awareness of me
And every detail of my life; whatever
Assails me, or brings me joy and laughter.
You remind me that the sum of all
My unlovely acts and aspects
Is not my true identity—
For I belong to You, set apart
Saved and sealed totally.
My world often feels like chaos—
But You maintain total control;
Nothing can completely unravel
On Your watch, and You are ever
My Sentry, Guardian of every minute.
Last night I knew, palpably, that
Your Grace surrounded me totally.
I felt my soul surrender the troubling
My anger dissolved ~
Thank You for Your perfect peace,
Ushered in with the cooling pewter rain.
