Each Step I take
You make a way
And I will give you all my praise
My season’s change
You stay the same
You’re the God of all my days
I heard a song that told me that God is perfect, ALWAYS. I must have heard that song 100 times, but that particular part of it, reminding me of who God is in relation to his love for me never felt so close to my heart as it did then.
Meditating on his love for me brought forth this prayer. If you are struggling in this area (of not feeling perfectly loved by God) I humbly offer it as a template to draw you closer to the one who LOVES YOU deeply and perfectly.
Father God, you are such a good father. Thank you for loving me so well. I worship you and love you, Father God, for who you really are.
Thank you for allowing me to even know you. You are perfect in all of your ways, even the ways that I do not understand.
Forgive me for thinking you were not just to me. That I was overlooked or uncared for or just not loved as much as ____ was. For you are perfect in all of your ways and you have perfectly loved me all of my life.
Help me to stop looking around and comparing myself to others in terms of who you show love to more. For you are perfect in all of your ways and show no favoritism. You HAVE loved me just as much as you love ____.
Help me to always know the deepness, richness, and awesomeness of your love for me.
From this day forward I am choosing to let go of all the lies the enemy has told me about who you are and to cling to the truth.
That you are perfect in ALL of YOUR WAYS and that this includes perfectly loving me.
Thank you God for loving me so well. Help me to never forget the depth and perfection of your love for me.
In Jesus name, I pray.

Faith isn’t the ability to believe
long and far into the misty future.
It’s simply taking God at His Word
and taking the next step.
