In the shadow of the cross, I kneel in thanks. There is nothing in life that should ever cloud this view of grace. These light and momentary afflictions should even be a cause of thanks, for they are storing up for me an eternal weight of glory.

Though my knees may be worn and achy from constant prayerful kneeling, is this not the position that God desires? Are not the cares of the world the very things He uses to show me my great need for Him and allows Him to show me His great love?

Forgive me Lord for whining and complaining. Forgive me for not counting it all joy when I encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of my faith produces endurance. Endurance produces Hope and God, You are my only Hope!

I remain on my knees in the shadow of your gracious cross, eternally thankful. I love you, Lord!
