23.9.23: Not much left

Today’s prayer came to me yesterday morning. It reflects my thinking and state of mind at the time.

I am yours.
(Psalm 119:94; NLT).

1. There’s not much of “me” left, Lord,
But all I am is yours,
For you are my Creator:
The One my heart adores.

2. There’s not much of “me” left, Lord,
But I’ll serve as best I can,
For you have been my end-point
Since before my life began.

3. There’s not much of “me” left, Lord,
But every day I live
I’ll offer thanks for all you send,
And what you take, I’ll give.

Take whatever He gives and give whatever He takes with a big smile.
(St. Mother Theresa).


Verse 1

We are the earth, and you are our maker; and we are all the work of your hand (Isaiah 64:8; BBE).

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, O LORD, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as the one who is over all things (1 Chronicles 29:11; NLT). 

Verse 2

I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb (Jeremiah 1:5; NLT). 

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV). 

Verse 3

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus (1 Thessalonians 5:18; NIV). 

I create the light and make the darkness. I send good times and bad times. I, the LORD, am the one who does these things (Isaiah 45:7; NLT).

The LORD gives, and the LORD takes away. Blessed be the name of the LORD (Job 1:20-22; CSB).
