{Ephesians 1:3-4; NLT}

All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes.

Heavenly Father I want to pause today and thank You.  You have blessed my life in so many different ways.  I have more than enough food to eat, a roof over my head, and a closet full of clothes.  There have been the unexpected blessings of jobs, relationships, and vacations.  You have provided me with hope and salvation through Jesus Christ.  It would be selfish of me not to take time to thank You for all the ways You have blessed my life.

Today I want to especially thank You for the fact that You chosen me to be part of Your Kingdom.  I can look back on my life and recognize how You pursued me, and at times kept me from making huge mistakes.  I know that You have always had my best interest at heart.

This week I ask that You will constantly remind me of Your love, that I have a place in Your Kingdom, and that You desire me to Your child.  Help me to meditate on these truths and so I can make them a reality in my heart.  Thank You for choosing me before I could even choose You.  I love You!

It is in the name of Christ Jesus I pray, amen.
