Oh, how I praise you, God of magnificent glory who does everything just right. You made angels to be in your presence as your servants. You made us to be farther away, but as your children. How you do love us. I guess sometimes I envy the angels because they are always in your presence. But they envy humans. I am your child. I belong to your royal family. What honor. What privilege. What dignity you bestow upon me. And some day, I will behold you as you are and worship you on bended knees.
Forgive me when I become afraid of people because I fear they will turn on me. If I was dead and only Jesus lived in me, they would not be able to hurt me. Help me not be selfish.
Thank you, God, for all you have done for us through history. We are the center of your world as children are to a loving parent. How you grieve when we fall, and rejoice when we return. Thank you for materializing your words in the form of Jesus. Oh, to have been able to see and touch him. I am convinced that will happen someday and I will be one with you as the golden rays of sunshine are one with the steadfast sun.
