IMG_0526 (2)

I’m so thankful that God is the God of my past, my present, and my future. He is my God for all times. Won’t you thank and praise him with me today as you join me in the following prayer?

Thank you, Father, for being the God of my past. Thank you for the family and the heritage you gave me and for drawing me to yourself and accepting me into your family. Thank you for teaching me and guiding me and for never letting go of me, even when I made mistakes. Thank you for loving me then.

Thank you, O Lord, for being the God of my present. Thank you for being my rock and my refuge, my Savior and friend. Thank you for walking with me day by day and being my peace, my joy, my comfort, my song. Thank you for helping me make wise choices, and thank you for the doors you open and also the ones you close. Thank you for loving me today.

And thank you, Father, for being the God of my future. Thank you for the assurance I have of your faithfulness, of knowing you’ll never leave me or forsake me, of knowing your provision and your strength will be enough for whatever the future holds. And thank you, Lord, for the home you’ve prepared for me in heaven and the welcome I’ll find in your arms. Thank you for an eternity with you and for the great reunion I’ll have with loved ones who have gone before me. Thank you for loving me forever.

Yes, thank you, Father, for being the God of my past, my present, and my future. Thank you for your great love!

“The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8

    I love the thankfulness in this post. Sets my heart right for the day.

  2. Wise choices, opened and close doors, and the ability to recognize his leading – how do people function without Him?? I bumble and fumble enough as it is WITH Him!

  3. Hi Cheryl – what a beautiful post, full of thankful thoughts. I try to express my gratitude to God each and every day, but I think your line thanking God for being the God of your past, present and future is just perfect.
    Best wishes,
