I speak to you not for an audience, not for applause, but as a young man with thanksgiving. A young man speaking one-on-one with his father, which is you Jesus. I pray that if there is anyone out there in need of your hand tonight, I pray that you may reveal yourself to them like you did to me that night… that night that I gave my life to you. Father again I give my life to you to shape me into a revolutionary man, son, brother, husband and dad. I pray that you comfort my beautiful wife who is out there and let her know that a strong man of God will come and Love her like she has never felt before. We will worship you together Lord. We will have beautiful kids that will worship you Lord. Let her know that it’s okay… I am real… but you are shaping me before you allow us to meet.
Thank you Lord for giving me the Holy Spirit… and even though i type this, you know the person behind this text, you know his heart, and you know his mind.
Thank you for giving me opportunities to communicate and spend time with you
Wherever… However… and Forever
Ohh Lord… I am humbled at your feet. I am nothing. nothing without you.
Simply… Thank You Lord,
Thank you for what you have done with me. Thank you for heartbreak. Thank you for storms. Thank you for pain. Thank you for tears.
For I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for all the above…
But more importantly?
Thank you for showing me Love… Showing me love when I needed it the most
You’ve taken care of me. You have changed my life in only a short year… actually UNDER a year! In that night in June, you changed my life. Lord I remember that I was faced with heartbreak from many angles… I was faced with pain from many angles… I felt betrayed from many angles… But I found your arms right there. I found your arms on my bedroom floor. I found your arms kneeling down…arms up… and tears down.
I found your love when i was broken
Beat by the life that I thought I had under control…
Literally broken and humbled
You gave me hope, and for that… Everything will be okay! Your scriptures hold a special place in my heart because It feels like they were written for me!
“Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me and lead me in the way everlasting. ” – Psalm 139: 23
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” -Jesus Christ, Matthew 6:33-34
“In my distress I called to the LORD, and he answered me. From deep in the realm of the dead I called for help, and you listened to my cry. You hurled me into the depths, into the very heart of the seas, and the currents swirled about me; all your waves and breakers swept over me. I said, ‘I have been banished from your sight; yet I will look again toward your holy temple.The engulfing waters threatened me,the deep surrounded me; seaweed was wrapped around my head. To the roots of the mountains I sank down; the earth beneath barred me in forever. But you, LORD my God, brought my life up from the pit.When my life was ebbing away, I remembered you, LORD, and my prayer rose to you, to your holy temple.Those who cling to worthless idols turn away from God’s love for them. But I, with shouts of grateful praise, will sacrifice to you. What I have vowed I will make good. I will say, ‘Salvation comes from the LORD. And the LORD commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.” -Jonah 2:1-9
Lord thank you for letting me know…
Letting me know that It doesn’t rain everyday… It doesn’t rain forever
Thank you Lord for the pain…
The pain allowed me to see…
You took me there…
…To lead me here
You Were Leading Me Here…
In Jesus name.
