A Letter To God

A Letter to God
 
Dear God,
I heard so much about you
Until it is burning me in my heart
I want to tell you how I feel, but
I don’t know where to start.
They say that you are the answer
To the way I feel inside
And once I am in you, I will
Have something to be my guide
 
I picked up the bible that
Had collected dust on the shelf
I decided to read it and find out for myself.
I read about how they nailed your
Precious body to the cross,
And the reason for this; was to
Save that which was lost.
Tears poured from my eyes as
Joy overtook my soul
I found a lot out about you that
I was never told.
 
 I read about Job and
 All that he went through
And the three Hebrew boys
 That had all faith in you
I just had to write you Jesus
 And let you know how I feel
No matter what I am told;
 In my heart I believe you are real.
As long as I have your spirit,
 I will never be alone
You told me if I hold on,
You would give me a new home.
I am taking you at your word
 Because it means a lot to me
The day you died on Calvary,
 It was to set me free.
 
Thank you for bringing me out of the world
And giving me a brand new life
I promise to keep your commandments
And do that which is right
 
I promise to teach my children
 To obey every law
And not let a day go by
Without you being in their thoughts
I have to go now Jesus
 And share you with someone else
As much as I want to,
 I can’t keep you to myself.
I want to thank you for saving me,
 And being my friend
I thank you for your love,
 And your grace unto the end.
 
                              Love Your
                          Precious, Precious Child
