We turn to you Lord for the hope of tomorrow when today seems to drown us in despair.
We turn to you Lord when yesterday is gripping our hearts, hindering us from seeing your hand today.
We turn to you Lord when everything is going wrong and nothing will dry the tears.
We turn to you Lord we’ve prayed a million prayers for our child to draw near.
We turn to you Lord when we can’t even lift our head or utter a word.
We turn to you Lord to make us aware of the daily blessings you surround us with.
We turn to you Lord to thank you for the strength you give us daily
We turn to you Lord to praise you for the glorious gift of the Cross
We turn to you Lord to sing praises when the darkness ends
We turn to you Lord to thank you for the protection that just sheltered us from harm
We turn to you Lord to give thanks for the loved one that has returned to you
We turn to you Lord to show our heart of gratitude for the good that keeps us renewed, for the bad that strengthens our faith and the millions of things in between that remind us to keep praising and adoring you.
Father, may we stay so close to your side that all we have to do is turn to you and whisper a faint cry for help or whisper praises through the tears of joy you bring. May our hearts never get so wrapped up in the hustle and bustle of life that we go a single day unaware of the gifts that you’ve poured out on us. May we praise you daily and spend time in the Word while loving and adoring you. May we always be aware of you, by our side, in Jesus precious name Amen.
We turn to you Lord when yesterday is gripping our hearts, hindering us from seeing your hand today. #nuggetsofJOY
