Dear God,

THANK YOU!

Thank You for loving me, despite all the ways I have not and will not measure up to Your perfection. Your unconditional love means more than words could ever express. When I feel ugly, broken and awful, You remind me that I am beautiful, strong and beloved.

Thank You for sending Your one and only Son to die on the cross for the forgiveness of my sins. I am so undeserving of Your boundless, daily grace. I know that I will mess up many more times before You call me home, but I will continue to have faith in You, the way You have faith in me.

Thank You for challenging me. Through the ups and downs, you find a way to show Your presence. You continue to shine Your light on me, so that I may live a life in Your likeness. The trials I have experienced have shaped me into the woman I am today.

Thank You for the blessings You bestow on me, for the strength you give me and for all the amazing people you surround me with that make life more meaningful. I am beyond blessed to live every day in this beautiful world You have created.

Thank You for accepting me as Your daughter, child and sinful, beautiful creation. The remarkable thing about You, my God, my Father, my Savior, is that even in every bit of darkness—even the darkness within my own heart—You bring light. You continue to be here for me on the days when I am so far from Your presence.

God, without you, I would be nothing. So often I get soaked up in the worldliness, tempted to detach myself from You and embark into the wilderness. For that, I am sorry. I know that I will not ever be the perfect daughter You want me to be, but I am trying.

I hope to live a life you are proud of. I strive for a life that when people look at me, they catch a little glimpse of Your beautiful Son; a lifestyle that invites people into a life changing relationship with You. Help me to live a life that praises You. Use me for Your glory! Encourage me when I am down. Give me hope when I feel weak. Right my path when I start to wander. Always bring me back to You.

Thank You God for never giving up on me.

Love,
Your Artwork
