Psalm 23:6

Surely your goodness and love will follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
    forever. – Psalm 23:6

Dear Lord,

Your goodness and love follow me wherever I go, even if it through the dark valley of disappointment, grief and sorrow.  Even there I know your promises and they keep my weary soul busy with pleasant thoughts.  I have hope in my life because I know you and your blessings will be there the entire length of all my days.  And then, when I close my eyes for the last time, I won’t need them anymore as my soul explores the rooms in your house where I will live closer to you than now, … forever.  In this life have hope that you will bless every good and bad thing for my welfare.  And over all my thoughts looms the heavenly sign, “All this and heaven too.” You are the good shepherd!

Life with God is a life of increased blessings until the grand finale that never ends.
