Grateful and Stoked


Keep me aware, Jesus, of your glory around me.  I know it's there, but knock on my head and remind me of just how good and awesome you are. 

Philippians 4:6-7 Don't be anxious, but present to God your requests with prayer and thankfulness.  Then, he will fill you with this incredible peace.

I've loved experiencing this lately.  No stress, just trusting and faith. 

I want to be aware and acknowledge how sinful and dirty I am.  But I don't want that to be something that makes me depressed and turns me from God.  I want that knowledge to make me more and more grateful and stoked on God's mercy and grace.  I am so undeserving, but he passionately loves and pursues me.
