Forgiveness Devotional

If you sin,
don’t wallow in discouragement.
Confess your failures to God,
and confidently ask for His grace.

Then put your sins behind you
and never go back to them.
Rest in His complete forgiveness,
and return to your ordinary business of loving and worshiping Him.

Hymn: Father, I’ve Failed You

Psalm 34

Every day, all day long, my Lord,
My being lifts up Your praise.
All You are, all You do, O God –
I think of You.
I speak of You.
My being lifts up Your praise.

Here in You, I need nothing more.
What light and beauty and peace!
Living Bread, Wine of Life, my Lord –
I taste and see.
O taste and see!
What light and beauty and peace!

You are love, love complete, O God!
My joy is living Your praise.
Through each loss, through each trouble, Lord,
I rest in You,
Complete in You.
My joy is living Your praise.

Daily Work

The best way to serve God and fellowship with Him
is through ordinary occupations.
Lift each daily task as an offering to Him.

Before you begin, ask for His help.
As you work, consecrate the task to Him
and speak simple words of love and praise.
When you finish, thank Him for His faithfulness.

To sanctify your days to God,
simply do for Him what you would ordinarily do for yourself.

Hymn: Holy in You

Psalm 70

This hymn is a
simple prayer that
we can carry with us every day:
“Father God, I need You!”
We can always call confidently on
Him who is with us
wherever we are.

Printed Music

Father God, I need You!
Hear my urgent prayer!
You are here each moment.
Make me more aware.
Keep me more aware.

Evil would destroy me;
Death is its delight.
You are love almighty,
Goodness, truth, and right.
Keep me true and right.

All our hopes and longings,
All our hearts pursue,
All our needs and struggles
Draw us back to You.
Lord, we cling to You!

God Alone

We grasp so much for material goods
though they give us little satisfaction.
Yet we are satisfied with so little of God.
He has endless treasures to give,
and we are content with only passing moments of inner joy.

Give yourself entirely to God.
Make pleasing Him your only concern.
Whatever you do throughout your day,
do it for Him.
Turn away from everything that doesn’t lead to Him.

You were made for God alone.
Find your happiness in loving Him.

Hymn: Draw My Desires to You, Lord

God’s Mysterious Ways

This hymn reflects on how
God works
through us and
within us.
His ways are indeed
marvelous and
mysterious!

Recording
Printed Music

Our Almighty God will do His work
Through us, through us.
Our Father delights to bless the world
Through us, through us.
Through all who hear and obey His call,
The child, the leader, the great and small,
He will help and heal,
Expressing His love through us.

For all who obey, our Father works
His will, His will.
Through joy and through pain He kindly weaves
His will, His will.
The sweet surprise and the long delay,
The weird, the wild, and the everyday,
God will use them all
To lovingly work His will.

O Father of love, we give ourselves
To You, to You.
Completely, O God, we live our lives
To You, to You.
So give the joy that You long to share,
Our deepest hunger, our highest prayer,
That forevermore
We draw every breath in You.

Father, You Are My Joy

I cannot control the
evil and
injustice
that flood my world.

I cannot erase all the problems,
big and
small,
that pressure my days.

My heart is weighed down by my
weakness and
uncertainty.

But I look to You:
almighty,
all-wise,
all-loving God,
pure,
unchanging,
high and lifted up,
always right, and
always,
always
good.

Father,
You are my joy.
You are my rock-solid stability.
I look to You, and

Smile.

Hymn: My Father, My Joy

Psalm 145

this majestic Psalm,
celebrating the
greatness and
goodness of
our magnificent God.

O Your goodness! O Your greatness,
Light of every soul and star!
Dazzled by Your endless wonders,
None can fathom all You are.
Every passing generation
Sings what all Your children know.
Hymns of all Your mighty mercies
Bubble up and overflow.

Yahweh, God of all compassion,
Always grace in all You do,
Patient and forever faithful,
Mercy ever moment new!
O Your everlasting Kingdom,
Here among us now begun!
Finish all Your love has started
With the gift of Christ Your Son.

All Your goodness, all Your greatness
Reaches down to those who fall.
Tender, constant, rich provision
Flows from You, the All-in-all.
All You do is right and loving.
When we cry, You always hear,
Ever guarding, ever giving,
Ever God and ever here!
