Dear God

Postby rlamp404040 » Thu Sep 02, 2010 11:45 pm

Dear God

Dear God, I want thank you
For the life I live today
For allowing me to feel sane again
And for never turning me away

I thank you for the chance to live again
That you have given to me
I was so overcome with guilt and shame
I was strangled by fear and could not see

I thank you God for the freedom
I was a prisoner in my own head
It was me against a thousand voices from hell
I became a slave to the words they said

I thank you God for allowing me
To be the father I am today
To be there for the needs of my son and daughter
And to watch them grow up and play

I thank you God for teaching me
How to be a husband to my wife
To make her feel like a queen in a castle
And for enhancing our quality of life

I thank you God for loving me
I'd always felt different and all alone
You help me conquer the bondage of self
And I have stepped out of my comfort zone.

Thank you God for showing me
I have a choice against all the pain
If I live in the spirit of the light each day
I never have to drink again
