Father, I Thank You


My Father always desires my company. There is such joy in His heart every time I sit with Him.

He is always accessible to me, His Beloved daughter. My Father is never too preoccupied to listen when I need to talk. Even when I seem to ramble on and on making no sense, He always understands the desires of my heart.

My Father loves to out give my expectations. I wish I should share all the blessings in my life because of Him, but there are just too many. He gives me so much, even when I deserve nothing.

My Father always knows what is best for me. ALWAYS. He is filled with love, grace, mercy, forgiveness and long suffering toward me.

I want to be like my Father someday. I want to love like He loves. Forgives as He forgives. I fall short daily in being like Him, but am thankful that He has place in my heart the desire to imitate Him.

I love spending time with Him. Sometimes we sit quietly and other times we talk all day taking turns listening to each other’s hearts.

I don’t think I can adequately explain His deep love for me. It’s greater than my love for Him. I wish it wasn’t so, but I so often find it hard to love like He does. But He is patient and continues to teach me, shape me, and pours His love and grace out on me.

Oh God how can I possibly ever thank for for being my Father. The perfect Father….I love you so.
