You are the best Father of all

God there are so many things you have taught me
Sometimes you let me know right away
Other times I just have to find out later
But time after time you always have a lesson plan
Like the time when you asked me to give the money I had 
To that poor person who was digging the trash can for things
You were teaching me obedience to see whether I obeyed you
That was all the money I had at that time –but I obeyed
Like the time when I had to buy something for someone
And you taught me that if I want the best I also need to give the best
What about the time when I was turning up my nose at the thought of wearing somebody’s clothes?
You had me wearing only clothes from Goodwill after that 
For years 
Until I finally no longer have the disgust
You taught me through little things
Through the big things
Of how I can rely on you
God you walked me through those life’s challenges
With my house and with things in general
Looking back I don’t know how I did it 
But I did
Because of you
So now Father I give you a head down
To give you obeisance
To thank you for carrying me
For being there when I needed you
For taking the time to listen to my ranting
To my being angry at you 
And see beyond the outbursts
To the person I am supposed to be
Oh Cherished One
You are indeed a great Father
That no one can equal
Your love envelopes us all
Consuming us
Until we become like you
Oh Magnificent One
Have your way
Teach us
Carry out your lesson plans
For we need to learn from You
You are the best Lord
Oh Incredible One
Only You can do 
What You set out to do
Accomplish things in us
Help us to be the best person we can be
In you
Happy Father’s Day Lord
Love you
