How we praise God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every blessing in heaven because we belong to Christ.
Long ago, even before he made the world, God chose us to be his very own through what Christ would do for us; he decided then to make us holy in his eyes, without a single fault — we who stand before him covered with his love. His unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into his own family by sending Jesus Christ to die for us. And he did this because he wanted to!
Lord, thank You for Your great love for us. Open my heart and mind to fully accepting all Your blessings, to allowing You to wash me clean of anything that is not love, to living in every way as Your beloved daughter.
