Unchanging Love

Lord,

thank you for your eternal, unfailing love.

When I succeed in some endeavors,

and stumble and fail in more,

thank you for your love for me.

When I’m happy, secure, and confident,

when I’m discouraged, sad, and timid,

thank you for your love for me.

When I’m praying, reading your Word, and soaring in spirit,

when I’m exhausted, dull in my flesh, and rebellious,

thank you for your love for me.

When I’m believing, full of faith, and victorious,

when I’m fearful, anxious, and distrusting,

thank you for your love for me.

When some accept me,

and others reject me,

thank you for your love for me.

Whether the sun is shining and the sky is bright,

or darkness comes with storms and clouds,

thank you that your love for me never changes.

Lord, I am up one moment,

down the next,

limited, temperamental, capricious, and fickle.

You are my rock,

your love my anchor,

your grace and mercy

a refuge and respite

from the world and from me.

Thank you that your love never depended on me,

you love because you are love,

please give me the grace,

to delve into the heights, lengths,

widths, and depths of your love,

to never be familiar and always in awe of you,

seeking, open, wondering,

asking, knocking, trusting

expectant in faith and hope

of knowing you more.

I need you and I love you Lord.

Amen.
