I come before you with a thankful heart,
Your gracious hand upon my life is a beautiful work of art.
From the beginning you loved me so much to take me out of a potentially harmful situation,
You chose me because of your immense love, not out of obligation as if I was a burden.
You relentlessly pursued me even at the depth of my despair,
Every tear I cried you have collected because you care.
I give you all my fears,
I have allowed them to dictate my life for the past twenty years.
I long to be free in every aspect of my life.
I desire to be a healthy, loving, gentle, kind, and tender-hearted wife.
Thank you for reminding me of the promise you made,
Your promises do not waver nor fade.
I give you all of my broken pieces.
I am grateful the areas I am weak, your strength increases.
I see a little girl holding a few puzzle pieces to a massive incomplete puzzle.
She’s sitting there upset, frustrated, and tearful.
You walk up and say “let go,
You can trust me, I will show you where these go.”
As she relinquishes the pieces she was holding on to so tightly
She feels a sense of peace; a relief of anxiety.
He places the pieces in their intended place,
As He looks at her with a smile full of grace.
He wasn’t mad at her for trying to figure it out on her own,
He relentlessly pursued her until she realized she wasn’t alone.
This the God I serve.
The highest praise and honor does He deserve.
Placed on the highest throne.
Yet He seeks after His lost children to bring them home.
