Yours, Abi

Dear Lord, 

Words can not express
and my smiles can never be wide enough
my praise is like a mustard seed 
to show  how thankful I am

Day in, day out
You write my story 
Reminding me that I am yours
that I belong to you

In the midst of pain,
and in the midst of trial 
you give me reason to laugh
and when my soul is weak
When I am so broken 
and can't let go, can't get up
You have been my strength

When I am alone 
When there is no one to turn to
When my heart is cold
you have been my friend
A shoulder to cry on
With you, I never feel judged
It amazes me how you pull me through 

And even in my stubbornness
When I want what I WANT 
When I go my own way
You welcome me back, 
Embrace  me with your love 
In your presence I feel at home

Lord, you are love
You define love to me everyday
Sometimes, through others 
Mostly,  directly from my relationship with you
It's the way you protect me
the way you fulfill your promises
The way you reveal yourself
God, you are real
I am thankful to be yours
I am thankful to recognize you as Lord! 

and I sometimes doubt you
This big ocean of unbelief in my heart
Lord,  sometimes I forget your plans for me
I forget that you have a purpose for me 
and years down the lane
I am more than grateful I did not have it my way

Lord, I am not the best child
But you love me anyways, I am in awe

So now, 
I will trust you more
I want to trust you some more
Even in my doubts
I want to remember your goodness
and that everything happens for a reason
that you have a beautiful plan 
There is my will
And there is yours 
Help me to want what you want
Teach me to love 
Lead me, hold me, 
help me make a difference,
Be my foundation
And like a strong tower complete me

Yours,
Abi Tobi
