I just want to thank you for everything. By everything, by the way, I mean everything. You’ve done so much for me in the past few months. My life will not be this way if it weren’t for you. Honestly, I think it could have been worse. But you were for me to shine the light; you were more than my guide in this world, Jesus. You are so much more; you are my hope.
So I want to thank You– not for the things you’ve given me, or the specific events that have happened, though. I am thankful for all of them, but right now, I am writing this because I want to thank you for YOU. I could have gotten everything I needed, and the things that have happened could have happened, but they will not be the same without you.
So thank you because first, you came in my life. You really came and pursued me, even though it was clear that I did not want you; that I thought I did not need you. Still, you did not give up on me. You were forever good, and you were always there for me, insisting that you loved me so much. Thank you, because if you gave up, I would not have known about your love. I would not have known that it was what I needed all along.
Second, thank you because you are my king, not anyone else. I am so grateful now to know that I am not the captain of my life. You are. It’s not up to me; it’s up to you. You are the one leading during the battles, and you are the one carrying me during the hard times. You are the one holding me—and tightly—not the other way around. Jesus, my life would have been really pathetic if it you did not secure it. But in your grace, even if I did not deserve it, even if it was too good to be true, you are the one taking care and reigning over my life. And sometimes, even when I don’t acknowledge you in my life, even when I follow other things instead of you, you were still faithful.
Thank you, thank you so much.
Thank you because you are grace. Thank you for all you have done. Thank you Jesus, because you are you. I could never have asked for more than you. You are my comfort whenever I am down. You are my faith whenever I lacked. You are my strength. You are my foundation and anchor when everything else fails. You are always there for me. You are the best thing that has happened to me. I sometimes—no always—mess up and disappoint you, but you keep on picking up, and embracing me with your grace.
I love you, Jesus. Thank you so much.
