I Am Thankful

        I Am Thankful

I am thankful

Thankful that it was I,

I, who was born unwanted and shamed by the depravity of man,

By the lusts of  their flesh,

I am Thankful

It was I who walked in the middle of the night at the age of five

Into the devils room,

I am Thankful

It was I, and not you.

I am Thankful

That in the haze of drugs, mercy was my net,

That His still small voice broke through my craziness.

I am Thankful

That even though no one else knew my brokenness,

He saw through my illusion and pain

I am Thankful

That He takes the unwanted and calls them His own.

I am Thankful

That He heals the broken hearted and sets the lonely in families.

I am Thankful

That in my grief in all that I had and all that I have lost, I am never alone, I am His and He calls me His own,

I am Thankful.

That I call Him Abba Father and He changed me from within.

I am Thankful

That He is Love and His Love heals from beginning to end.

I am Thankful
