You are precious to me, Lord. Please hold me close.

“I will be your God throughout your lifetime—
    until your hair is white with age.
I made you, and I will care for you.
    I will carry you along and save you.” ~ Isaiah 46:4, NLT

“You will keep in perfect peace
    all who trust in You,
    all whose thoughts are fixed on You!
Trust in the Lord always,
    for the Lord God is the eternal Rock.” ~ Isaiah 26:3-4, NLT

The Lord is my shepherd;
    I have all that I need.
He lets me rest in green meadows;
    He leads me beside peaceful streams.
     He renews my strength.
He guides me along right paths,
    bringing honor to His name.” ~ Psalm 23:1-3, NLT

When I Think of You, Peace Descends

Lord, what would I do without You? Where would I be? You are precious to me in all Your ways. Hold me close and wrap me in Your love.

When I think of You, peace descends and washes over my broken places. When I sit still, cease striving, and remember You are God, You steady my heart and capture my restless thoughts.

If I were to praise You from the rising of the sun until its setting, it would not be enough to express my gratitude to You. You are precious to me, Lord — no one else compares.

All creation declares Your glory!

All creation declares Your glory!

When I look at Your heavens and consider the work of Your hands, I am reminded how great You are, and yet You call me daughter. You search me and know all my anxious thoughts. You know my coming-ins and my going-outs … even my tears are precious to You.

Your love is difficult to comprehend and yet I know it well. When I cry out to You in my distress, You draw near. When I grow weary, You carry me as a father carries his son in the wilderness.

You Satisfy My Longing Soul for You are Precious to Me

Hold me close, Lord. Let me feel the warmth of Your embrace, the nearness of Your heart. You are my portion — You satisfy my longing soul. I bless You for You are precious to me, Lord. Be glorified in my life and dwell richly in me.

In the Name of Jesus, I pray,

Amen — let it be so.
