Everything

All I have comes from You, Lord.

I cannot claim anything, do anything, earn anything on my own merits.

All I have comes from You, Lord.

I have no riches unless it comes from You.

I have no family,

                possessions,

                home,

                joy,

                health

Unless it comes from You, Lord.

I have no wisdom unless it comes from You.

I have no peace,

                words,

                mercy,

                compassion,

                beauty

Unless it comes from You, Lord.

I have no devotion unless it comes from You.

I have no salvation,

                grace,

                judgement,

                deliverance,

                understanding

Unless it comes from You, Lord.

I have no Heavenly Home unless it comes from You.

I have no indwelling of the Holy Spirit,

                breath,

                purpose,

                stamina,

                hope

Unless it comes from You, Lord.

I have no prosperity unless it comes from You.

I have no friendship,

                endurance,

                career,

                pleasure,

                delight

Unless it comes from You, Lord.

I have no love for others unless it comes from You.

I have no goals,

                strength,

                meaning,

                worth

Unless it comes from You, Lord.

I have no humility unless it comes from You.

I have no self-control,

                kindness,

                patience,

                gentleness,

                faith

Unless it comes from You, Lord.

If I find myself claiming these blessings based on what I have done on my own,

Remind me often that everything I am,

Everything I have,

Everything I need,

Everything that is praiseworthy…

Comes from You, Lord.
