Here I Am

Here I am
    needing Your love
    hoping for joy
    waiting in anticipation
    when You make Your presence known.

Here I am
    thinking of Your mercy
    remembering how every instance
    showered me like a morning rain
    with Your infinite grace

Here I am
    smiling at You
    You give me joy
    I cannot contain it
    so I will praise You!

Here I am
    silent before You
    on my knees
    I am in awe
    that You give audience to me

Here I am
    wanting to be more like You
    I hear You say,
    "The harvest is ripe..."
    use me Lord

Via con Dios...

Almighty God and Father,

The aren't enough words to express my gratitude and appreciation for Your love and grace.  How often You extend Yourself and because of You, I am better than I could have ever imagined.  Thank You for Your goodness.  Your love is beyond my understanding!  Hear my prayer today, not because I demand it, but because You tell me to, "Ask..., and to "come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need."  Search me Lord.  You know my heart, my secret thoughts, my deepest concerns.  You give peace when I am troubled, water when I thirst, light when I am blinded, and love when it was undeserved.  I will praise You Lord!  Yes, I will praise You.  I won't wait for the rocks to cry out on my behalf.  Your holiness is revealed and one day I will see Your face.  Thank You for who You are and what You do on my behalf.  With unending joy, I say, "Amen!
