“From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another.”
I have been filled with pride, overflowing with love, consumed by longing, brimming with gratitude. Want leaves me empty of satisfaction. Excess leaves me bloated with regret. So why does my heart ride the chaotic range of these two extremities when I have You? Surely I have learned that nothing satisfies like the fullness of Your grace.
For too long, my God, I have stepped over and on blessings as I make my way to prayers for more blessings. Please show me all of the riches in my life that come directly from Your hand. Remove from my spirit any longing, sin, preoccupation; the space they leave behind is meant for Your fulfillment, grace, and will. Empty me. Fill me.
His blessings are countless. He wants to bless us even more than we want to be blessed. We rob ourselves when we fail to spend time in His presence.
What an amazing God!
