“Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with Him,”
Heavenly Father, thank You for dying for me so that I might be identified - not only with Your death but also with Your resurrection and the eternal life that it guarantees. May I live my life to Your honour and glory. Thank You that the power of sin has been broken in me - through Christ. May this become an increasing reality to me as I keep my old man nailed to the cross - so that my new life in Christ may grow in grace and in a knowledge of Him.. until it is not I that live but Christ that lives in me - to His praise and glory, AMEN.
Source: Verse of the
day for Romans 6:8
Loving Lord I am filled with grief and sadness at the loss of my precious loved one – and yet that pain is tinged with gold, knowing that they trusted you as their Saviour and that they are now in Your presence.
I know that I am going to miss this precious one, who has been my strength and my joy for so long, and thank You for the precious times we had together.
Often Lord I expect my dear one to just be there, or walk through the door - and then remember that they have gone home to be with You. At times this is quite hard and yet I know that I must not grieve as those that have not hope in Jesus – but rejoice knowing that the day is coming when we will be together with You and You will wipe away all tears from our eyes - but at the moment my loss is like an open wound – and I pray that You will heal my brokenness and the loneliness I feel… and draw me every closer into Your arms of love my Lord and my God.
Thank You for all You are to me and may I rest in You in Jesus name,
