I love this garden bower where I can sit with you. It is bliss to commune together about the sweetness of the Saviour – our wonderful Lord Jesus! Thank you for all your gifts that you bestow on me so that I can co-serve with you in glorifying the One who is worthy. I'm sorry for those times of failure – I cannot cope without you – I need you more than life itself.
Precious Saviour, I love you! You are my first love, the love above all earthly loves. May my fingers drip with the blessings of your sweetness and kindness. How blessed I am to be a part of the fellowship we enjoy within our family relationship. How precious to adore your loveliness day by day. To walk and talk with you is just beyond comprehension – thank you!
My thankful heart is tinged with regret for what my fallen state cost you, and for the suffering required of you to redeem me. I will be forever grateful and will sing praise to you forever. Help me to be strong like you and be willing to lay down my life for others.
Wonderful, Wonderful Father, I adore you! The security I feel in you is like the nestling's comfort of a mother's soft feathered breast. You have upheld and borne me up so many times, like a parent eagle on the wing. Being a child in your family is to be blessed indeed: knowing that no-one can remove me from your favour or snatch me away from being part of our family.
You thrill me with your creativity: Your sense of humour in creating the ridiculous giraffe – maybe a lesson for us to stick our necks out for our brother Jesus, who did just that for us. I love to see your steadfastness in the mountain range and your vast personality in the spread of the oceans. Father, I feel so safe in your loving hands.
Wonderful Father, Precious Saviour, Divine Dove – thank you for inviting me to join with you as part of your family and to be in relationship with you. It is a great gift for a member of a fallen humanity to be lifted to a higher realm and become your child. Please accept my humble thanks, and my pledge to promote the worth of your wonderful Salvation.
O, Triune God, blessing and praise be to you forever and ever!
