My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. - Psalm 73:26
Dear heavenly Father,
Although I do many things to love and care for the body you have given me, it’s going to fail me. Up until now, it has only partially failed me but I know the hour is coming when no matter how badly I want to stay here, my body will check out on my soul. But you will never check out on my soul. You have redeemed me and you promise to raise me up with a restored and renewed body on the last day. You are my portion and my strength forever, oh God. You will hold me close to you even when my body will make it hard for others to look at me. This makes me love you more than life itself.
Our souls never age, never die, have no gender or race and are dearly loved by the one who created them.
