You are my everything

(a prayer of gratitude to God)

O Lord,

Were I to count the ways your love has worked in me,
There’d be no time to list them all, for each day you have been –

A gentle breeze that’s shaped my life.
A fragrance to enjoy.
A seed that’s born spring leaves and shoots
That makes my journey full.

Your words have helped me climb the peaks
And lit the valleys dark,
And always I have found the light
Of truth to guide my path.

You’ve given me the very gift
My heart was yearning for,
And blessed the work my hands have done
To make my offering more.

But more than this, as only you see
You’ve known my tears and smiles.
To walk so close to a loving friend
Is how I was designed.

And so I am so privileged
And inherit such a prize.
My heart is full of gratitude
And always open wide.

To drink in the beauty of each day
To run and dance and sing,
Because I live within your grace
You are my everything.

Amen.
