Living, He loved me

Dying, He saved me
Buried, He carried my sins far away
Rising, He justified freely forever
One day He’s coming
Oh glorious day, oh glorious day

Chorus of the fabulous song from Casting Crowns, 'Glorius Day'

Good Night Lord

I am sure you missed me talking to You today. Father I am so sorry that only now, I give You my my individed attention. I missed You. I really missed Your voice today. Have You been waiting for me? Were You looking out for me Lord?

Lord, what did You do today? What happened in heaven today. How many celebrations have You had today? I bet You had quite a few - did the angels have fun with You dancing and singing over all the newborn christians? Wow! Lord Your parties must have the biggest fireworks ever!! Filled with laughter and dancing, music and clapping and Lord, just happiness. I would love to experience it one day Lord. Will You invite me, soon? I would love to join in the fun ...

Why do I sense a bit of sadness Lord.... Abba? did someone hurt You today? Did anyone break Your heart all over again? Please tell me if someone did... I want to be there for You too... You can cry on my shoulder too Lord. I'll understand - I know the pain of an aching heart... of someones betrayal...

Lord, tomorrow morning when I wake up... please be there. Dont' leave. If You see me taking too long to open my eyes, don't leave. Please wait 4 me or even better... Will You wake me up? I want You to be the first person that I see when I open my eyes.

I love You.
Good Night Lord
