“Blessed are you who give yourselves over to God, turn your backs on the world’s ‘sure thing,’ ignore what the world worships; O Lord my God, You have performed many wonders for us. Your plans for us are too numerous to list. You have no equal.
“You’ve opened my ears so I can listen. So I answered, ‘I’m coming. I read in Your letter what You wrote about me, and I’m coming to the party You’re throwing for me.’ That’s when God’s Word entered my life, became part of my very being.
“Lord, I know you will never stop being merciful to me. Your love and loyalty will always keep me safe. For troubles surround me; too many to count! My sins pile up so high I can’t see my way out. They outnumber the hairs on my head. I have lost all courage.
“May all who come to You, be glad and joyful; may all who are thankful for Your salvation always say, ‘How great is the Lord!’ And me? I’m a mess. I’m nothing and have nothing: make something of me, Lord…"
