Day 15 – Psalm 73:25-28
25Whom have I in heaven but You? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides You.
26My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
27For behold, those who are far from You shall perish; You put an end to everyone who is unfaithful to You.
28But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may tell of all Your works.
Prayer of Reflection:
“Lord, thank you for my suffering. This life is hard, my body fails me, but I know that through it all You are the strength of my heart and my portion forever. My suffering drives me even deeper into Your love and shows me that Your grace is enough, every single day.
“Thank you for the hope of heaven. Thank you for the hope that one day I will live in a place without sin and brokenness. I will be reunited with loved ones, have my tears wiped away, and experience the life without sin I was always meant for.
“But Lord, always remind me that if I don’t have You I have nothing. Remind me that nothing else will satisfy me. What makes heaven is that You are there. I look forward to that far more than anything else. You will be my portion forever.
“Help me to always remember Your promises. That, because of Jesus, I will spend eternity with You. That You are making all things new. And that the pain and sorrow of this life will one day be a memory because of Your amazing grace. Amen.”
