Lord, so often when I look to my life and all I see are the challenges and the struggles that I face as adversity seems to overshadow everything else. They can blind me to the beauty and the miracles that happens all around me. In my pain I lose sight of Your blessings. I lose focus with everything else that is happening in life rather than what’s happening for my life through You.
This is not Your failing Lord, but my own as I focus so much on everything else that I miss what is right in front of me.
Lift the shroud from my eyes, O Lord, and take the veil from me, that my heart may be filled with a sincere and wondrous gratitude for all that You have and continue to give to me daily in my life. Create in me a heart that can look past the darkness to see Your light as the miracles of Your blessing are revealed to me. Let me look upon Your face rightly, as my provider in the desert and my shelter in the storm, giving freely unto me in the grace, mercy and love that pours forth from Your heart. Let me see Your face and Your heart rightly as Your Spirit restores me daily, showing to me the boundless possibilities that You have opened up to me.
Lift the shroud from my eyes, O Lord, and take the veil from me that I may rightly and properly sing Your praises for the limitless love You have shown me.
In the name of Your Son, my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Amen.
