Chapter 1

Lord, you are my provider.

What do I need when the Lord provides all my needs?

Is the Lord gracious?

Is he merciful?

He is merciful because I do not deserve my blessings.

He blessed me despite my iniquities.

He has given me abundance despite the multitude of my sins.

The Lord is gracious because he saved me.

I did nothing to deserve to be rescued.

I was lost and did not want a way out.

But the Lord, God, grabbed me.

He picked me up out of the mud.

He cleaned me and made me ready for the wedding.

The Lord showed me my heart, and it is broken.

Yet he desires a broken heart and a contrite spirit.
