You

Through the mire of my soul I search for You
My heart longs for intimacy with You
My eyes look towards heaven for You
My spirit soars after You

You meet me where I am
You change me gently
You love me through my difficulties
You see the goodness in me

What can I do for You?
What can I say to bless You?
Where can I go on Your behalf?
How can I serve You better?

You desire relationship with me
You yearn for time alone
You pursue me with Your love
You pull me deeper into You

Thank You for never giving up
Thank You for holding me close
Thank You for drying my tears
Thank You for placing hope in my heart

To write that... you understand the relationship you have to have with the Lord. It made me shed a few tears. I long for the Lord, He is truly my Father and I need Him too.
