Being Gods’ Child!

You say you love me, but I don’t know how to be your child.  You say you have grace untold for me, but I don’t deserve it.  You fill my life with favor, with blessings too numerous to count, but I don’t know why. You lead me down paths that lead to you, but so many times I do not follow. You speak to me with love and understanding, and so many days I do not listen. I read your words… your wisdom… your instruction… but I do not always heed them. You anoint my head with compassion, with empathy, but I don’t take the time to say “Thank You”.  I try each day to make you proud.  To be your hands… your feet… your love.  I try with unwavering devotion to put a smile on your face, but I fall so pitifully short.  My sin makes me want to hide.  Then you wrap me in your love.  You fill my soul with the warmth of your embrace.  You peer into my heart, and without hesitation, you tell me that I don’t have to know how to be your child.  All I have to do is accept and love you.  What an amazing Father.  What an amazing Savior you are!  Father guide me down the path you would have me to follow.  The path that leads straight to you. 

Ephesians 2:8 & 9 (MSG)

I love You!
