A couple of years ago I was asked to think about my love for God. I wrote it out as a prayer and recently I stumbled upon that note and thought I would share it below.
I thank you Lord that I am never beyond repair. Your grace is always bigger than my mistakes.
I love you Lord because you loved me when I was nothing more than a vile sinner. Not only have you saved me but you continue to save me from myself and when I am too stubborn to listen, and fall, you are always willing to forgive. I love you Lord because you have the best planned for me. I can trust in your guiding hand to lead me down the right path and not to harm me. You shaped and fashioned me in my mother’s womb and still continue to shape me into the person you want me to be. I love you Lord because you allow me to be a part of your story here on earth. You don’t need me but you choose to use me. Thank you for letting me be used by you. Thank you for hearing when I cry out about big things in my life. Thank you for hearing me when I cry out about silly things in my life. Thank you that you not only hear me but that you answer me, in a perfect way.
Lord you never let go, when I went through times of great depression and loss, you were there. Thank you.
I thank you Lord that with you there is no need for a facade, I don’t need to try to impress you or pretend that everything is OK when it is not. Because you know the true me, you have seen me at my lowest and my best, you know the depths of my heart Lord but you love me the same. And I love you too.
