This is the last of several prayers I received in rapid succession last Wednesday morning:
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; NIV).
Through saying Yes,
No matter what God sends,
And thanking him
With all your heart,
Until this journey ends.
So don’t resist
The Father’s will,
But make it your delight:
Find joy in your vocation,
For you’re precious
In his sight.
You are precious to me. You are honored, and I love you (Isaiah 43:4; NLT).
Walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called (Ephesians 4:1; KJV).
Precious is their blood in his sight (Psalm 72:14; NIV).
Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his faithful servants (Psalm 116:15; NIV).
