Touched by you.


My Lord for the many ways you have touched me. You know that this is one of my primary love languages.  You blessed me with the indwelling of your Holy Spirit. I was reassured by your presence and comforted in times of doubt.

“Jesus replied, if anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.” (John 14:23 NIV).

You overwhelmed me with your love as you poured into my heart your loving touch. When those times of trials came you prepared me with outpourings of your love.

Knowing my past hurts and my prejudiced heart you began healing me using those of your children who would be obedient and reach out in faith. You tenderly touched me reassuring me that you will never harm me and breaking down the wrong beliefs that i had carried around with me for so long.

“… but they did not realise it was i who healed them. I led them with cords of human kindness, with ties of love; I lifted the yoke from their neck and bent down to feed them.” (Hosea 11:3b-4 NIV).

Knowing the very thoughts of my mind and the desires of my heart you reached out to me and laid your hand upon my shoulder, comforting my aching heart.

“Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.” (Psalm 37:4 NIV).

You teach me your ways and make my path clear that i may follow you obediently;

“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.” (Psalm 119:105 NIV).

 and even when i don’t obey and i am stricken with grief and remorse, you fill me to overflowing with your amazing grace. You are merciful and forgiving and you hold nothing against me for you have separated my sins from me through the sacrifice and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. For your love is so great that …. no words can describe …

“A new command i give you: Love one another. As i have loved you, so you must love one another.” (John 13:34 NIV).

So i thank you my Lord and my God for the many ways that you have touched me and continue to do so. I praise you for who you are and for the demonstration of your love through Jesus Christ and i pray that you will use your children to reach out to the lost and touch them with your love.

“Love your neighbour as yourself. Love does no harm to its neighbour. Therefore love is the fulfilment of the law.” (Romans 13:9b-10 NIV).
