Lead me, LORD

Father, my God, I remember this morning my friend, Doug, who always said he didn’t want to do anything today to make You mad.

I want to enjoy the wonder of walking through my life as Your follower—totally forgiven and greatly loved! The best response to this wondrous gift I can make is to live in gratitude, seeking to please You alone and above all else.

Give me strength to abide in You in all things forever, for the sake of Your Kingdom now and forever. Amen

Verse for Today: “Jesus said, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me” (Matthew 16:24).
