Because I can still remember all the prayers I thought you forgot.
The nights I spent crying.
Asking you what I did to deserve any of this.
Because I was miserable. I was lonely. And because I felt forgotten.
But then here I am.
And I am only here because of You.
Because you pursued me.
And you brought me even closer to you.
This entire time. There you were. Right beside me.
Even when I messed up.
When I gave up trusting you.
When I was convinced my way was better.
When I thought you had better things to do.
When I was too ashamed to talk to you.
There you were.
Because you knew better.
You knew this place.
You knew him.
And you knew that he was exactly what I needed.
Because you heard every prayer.
Because you caught every tear.
And because you knew exactly what I deserved- even better than I did.
Because you always keep your promises.
Because you’re still not done.
And because you’re still at it.
Lord, thank you. Thank you for all of this. For this life you have created for me. For him. Lord, you are so good. Help me to trust more. To be reminded of how good You are everyday. Even in this world of brokenness and hurt. You are still good. And we can put our hope in you. Lord, thank you for loving me and pursuing me even when I begged you to just leave me alone. You are so good, Lord. Lord, thank you for being such a good father to me. Help me to grow into Your ways, Lord. Give me a new heart.Help me to trust you, Lord. Without ceasing. But mostly, Lord, thank you. Just thank you. In Your Name I pray. Amen.
