Dear Lord I love you

Updated on January 25, 2017

Dear Lord you have always been here walking right beside me


Even when I walked away from you


Or acted as if you couldn't see me


I am so sorry for all the times I turned my back on you


I even doubted your existence at one point


But you still loved me, even when I was foolish


You kept me fighting


When all I wanted to do was lay down and die


You showed me I had a purpose,


A reason to keep living



Source

You helped me to understand my failures, and accept them


You taught me how to push forward through unimaginable tragedy


Gave me strength to forgive others, and myself


Lord it's because of you I am me,


I love you


Your my everything,

      Thank you I haven't always been as close as I should have but as I've gotten older I started realizing without him I would be nothing.
