Your love overwhelms me,
I’m amazed that you see me,
your child, your own,
a speck of dust,
standing as a separate entity,
before your glorious presence.
You knew the choices of my father, my father’s father,
and my own, made in sin, would lead me
down paths of heartache and bondage.
Yet that you would appoint me to believe,
grant repentance to me that leads to life,
and open my heart to your Son —
I’m in awe of your mercy.
In the midst of my struggles and brokenness,
you cherish, treasure, and dignify me,
and honor my free will and choice.
Lord, you have loved me with an everlasting love,
I bless you for your salvation,
I praise you for your joyous shouts over my life,
your delight in leaning in and hearing my voice,
and answering the movements of my heart.
I am nothing without you,
you make me everything I was meant to be,
you give me life.
God you are so good,
thank you for knowing you, knowing life!
