But You are a God of forgiveness, Gracious and compassionate, Slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness; And You did not forsake them (Nehemiah 9:17, NASB)
Why do you hold on to me dear God? I would’ve given up on myself years ago, but you still hold me tight; still comfort me and teach me; still care for me as your child. I cannot fathom your grace — your compassion for me. I am but a sinful person, but you treat me as yours, extending your hand to me with loving kindness. Strengthen my faith in your son Jesus. Help me to follow his way. May I hold tight to the salvation He offers. Lead me with your righteousness, your light. May your desires be my desires dear God.
