Thank You Lord, for keeping Your word! You died for me, then rose again…like You said you would! You are LOVE!
I’m so alive because You chose to take my place. I believe I deserved what you endured. I am merely human with a list of issues and sins. If played out on a screen for the world to see, I would be shamed and disgraced. Thank You for Your mercy.
I’m so alive because You have shown me what real love is. I did not find it through relationship with a man, not even with my child……because men, most certainly come and go, and children, though deeply loved, push buttons and can make your cry. But you have been steady, persistent, the same…..yesterday, today and forever. Even though I have pushed You away, You stayed.
I remember the first drink that I had…..You did not judge me. You loved me, and reminded me that I can bury my pain in You.
I remember the day when church became my enemy…..the hurt and pain endured because of that whorish Jezebel spirit, You were right there……..You embraced me and reminded me that I had safety in You.
Your resurrection is more than You rising up that great day, but You rose up in my life, more times than I can remember, and more times than I have deserved. You have been there. You have loved me when I have been hard to love.
I will continue to be a piece of work……please keep loving me through Your labor.
I will continue to be a blank canvas…..please keep painting Your picture.
I will continue to progress……please keep walking with me, even when I need to rest.
No matter how far I have gone and strayed away, I know my way home, but just in case I forget, since You are the bread of life, please leave a trail of crumbs.
I LOVE YOU!
