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
When I was a young one in church we sang this song, “Father, I adore You and I lay my life before You. How I love you!” Do you know it? It has a calming melody, and it is beautiful with the natural harmony that comes into play when it is sung in a round. We even learned some sign language that went along with it.
I love the simplicity of this song. I can get caught up in the expectation of eloquence when it comes to talking with or about God because He is God. Who am I to even think to address Him? But, that is not my relationship with the God of the Universe. He paved my way. My simple prayers are not too simple for Him. I don’t need to earn the right to be in conversation with Him.
When I am in a stressful moment, sometimes negative thoughts come to mind. But, if I can pause those and reach out for something so simple, it can start my heart in a more positive direction.
Father, I adore you. And I lay my life before You. How I love you.
