Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified you…
(Jeremiah 1:5 NKJV)
Dear Father God,
Today I want to thank you for my salvation.
I want to thank you that even before I was conceived in my mother’s womb, you planned to call me from out of a world of darkness into your marvellous light, into the kingdom of your own dear Son.
I want to thank you for orchestrating my steps, and designing my days so that everything fell into place and I “happened” to be in the right place at the right time.
I want to thank you for melting my heart, for overwhelming me with humility and softness when I had determined to harden my heart and walk out of that youth meeting the way I had come in. I wanted to continue living life on my terms.
I want to thank you that your calling was timely. As I’ve heard it said in Christian circles, there are no coincidences – only God-incidences!
And even though the time of your call did not suit me, did not fit into my calendar, it was surely the right time and I am so grateful you did.
Of course I could have still walked away, I could have still hardened my heart, I could have still ignored the tug within my spirit, but oh my dear Father God, how grateful, how absolutely happy I am today that I did not.
Thank you for calling me. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for beautifying me both inside and out, with your salvation.
I worship you Father God.
With deep gratitude and love,
