It’s so nice Lord to get up early to find you.
Away from the noise of yesterday and the juxtapositioning of items seeking to crowd my mind before I even lift the duvet.
Thank you for the peace and balmy rest that I can feel in my soul.
Thank you for removing the nay sayers, the controllers and the accusers from my life.
You have been a faithful Faithful Father, Faithful Friend, Faithful Steed.
You have been there in the highs and the lows
Never judging or condemning, just accepting me with love.
Because of your staying power and your hope and plans for me,
I became as one with you through belief in your word , that says:
What you say, you will do
When we call, you will answer
You are The Way , The Truth and The Life
You do what it says on the can, in the small print -that’s where your are
No pomp, no ceremony, no cheesy selfie
No hidden agenda – just for us to believe.
You never change – ever working behind the scenes
Never early, nor are you late..!!
You are never moved by my mistakes
But you hold me up with your open hands
You garrison angels to catch me if I should fall
You have saved me to the uppermost
You have healed and restored my land
You have opened up and leveled the playing field.
How can I tell of the times you have visited, spoken, led me in the wilderness, fed me through sparrows , prophets and ravens?
How can I tell of the times we have laughed together and I have seen your knowing smile?
No one would believe that you shed light in darkness and reveal deep and hidden things
You have always put me one step ahead of the enemy
You have restored my inheritance
Lord , I thank you
Thank you for the many, many, marvelous things you have done and will do
I have no fear
Whether in this life or the the next, my spirit will always worship you.
I was made to worship you
You have removed the dread from my life and given me supernatural joy
My prayer and praise will always equate to the knowledge of you working in me and through me – I thank you
I thank you , for I could never have done this on my own
I could never have removed the stain or blot of my life and those inherited from the fall
You saw my state , heard and felt my rebellion , my arrogance and pride and yet…. you still wanted me !!!- you waited …just for me !!
Father, I hear your voice and it is the sound of love, love without breaks and the stirring of deep, deep waters. If only they could hear it
I will always look for you in the eyes of a child, in the sound of the heart and the words that are spoken by others,
I will always look for you in the actions received and observed around me
I want to know, who really knows you
I know you are never far from me
I keep a candle lit and burning at my window – day and night
I will ensure there be oil in my lamp
I look forward to the promise of eternal life with you, in glory.
Your ever, loving daughter, from the beginning
