Dear God

Dear GOD,

Thank you for giving me the power to regenerate my soul.
Thank you for saving me from the clutches of despair.
Thank you for looking after me.
Thank you for pushing him away.
Thank you for healing my heart every time it's been hurt.
Thank you for saving me from one doomed relationship after another.
Thank you for washing away my unforgivable sins against myself.
Thank you for giving me faith and firm beliefs.
Thank you for giving me the strength to fight darkness and hypocrisy.
Thank you for giving me a voice.
Thank you for giving me the senses to feel your embrace.
Thank you for the gift of life,
and for giving me the senses to indulge in its beauty.

    awesome piece. so many times we just go about our daily lives not givng a second thought to what God has done for us. its nice to see someone take a step back and thank God for all He has done. great job. keep up the good work and keep praising God. (Report) Reply

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
