My confession to you, dear God. -May  20th 2017


I would have never thought in a million year that my life would be how it is now, but as I sit here about to open up to you for the very first time to confess my gratitude and love for you, it is a challenge for me to get out of my comfort zone, and get to know you the way that I'm supposed to. I know I have not always been a follower or a  true believer, but you have always been with me, and loved me unconditionally. My innocence was taken away from me at such a young age, which left me confused and blinded to know and learn the truth. And As I grew up I became a lost sheep looking for its master, but you put me on your list and made me one of your children; you made me your priority without me having to fight for a spot.  Since then, you started being my strength and guidance, even though I never knew you personally, as I grew up, I started learning about you from my fellow human beings who preached about you forcefully, but did the opposite of what I was being taught, and as I became to experience cruelty from my brothers and sisters in Christ, I became to question my faith, but never fully stopped believing that you existed. In my teen and young adult years,I made mistakes and sinned and distanced myself from you, but yet you stood by me. Even though I built my walls so high because people gave me reasons to keep them high. I was in a dark place, had meltdowns and was mentally, physically and emotionally done, and never thought I'd love again, but you said in " 2 Corinthians 12:9  My power works best in your weakness" You never let me unpacked and settled in my dark universe because you loved me endlessly you believed in me because you knew my true characters and admired my secret talents because you knew everything about me since I was in my mother's womb. Therefore you gave me challenges; oh, you broke me into pieces in order to teach me about myself; opened my eyes, and drew me nearer to you. I have never fully given myself to you, but starting from Today dear God, I want to give my life to you, for you are my strength, my ever lasting savior,Lord; Oh my Lord, you are the peace I feel and need. I was once lost, but you found me, and I am so grateful for I am no longer alone and lost.Oh my Almighty Lord. How blessed I am to know your name I know there are so many gods,but none compared to you For You are the one and only, because You gave me strength when I was weak. And my request to you is to please open my heart to break down my walls to accept you 100 percent,and, give me understanding of you. I want to be your priority, like you have been with me. I want to fall for you completely so that you can be my first thought in the morning,and my last thought before I fall asleep . I am so proud to say that I love you dear God because you loved me first, and I want my relationship with you to last forever because you are my eternal rock. And as we go on from here, dear lord.  I ask for your protection upon myself, my daughter Ivy, my father Arthur, my mother Martha, and other unnamed family members. May you go before us always and direct our paths, give us the desires of our heart,and strengthen us to never doubt you no matter the circumstances.  AMEN





"Look at me now
In your presence giving you praises
Oh my father
I walk hand in hand with you now
Oh, I have someone to call my own
When I feel so alone
Lord,oh lord
Be my eyes in the dark"
