A prayer of belonging

  Praying Psalm 73:21-15 -- Oh Lord, I realize that my heart is bitter. I am all torn up inside. I have been misguided and mislead in my thoughts and conclusions. Do I seem like a dumb animal to you? Regardless of my limitations , you still want me. I belong to you, and you hold my hand tightly in yours. Your words guide me, your touch comforts me. You guide me toward the glorious destiny of your design. If I listen, you show me who I am and what I can become in you. Who else cares so much about me? May I never forget that my words and actions are for you alone. And you alone are my judge and my Redeemer. I love you more than anyone or anything. In Jesus' name, Amen. “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;      I have summoned you by name; you are mine. 2  When you pass through the waters,      I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers,      they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire,      you will not be burned;      the flames will not set you
