In Your Eyes, I'm Not Hidden

I'm amazed Lord that you know my thoughts and my heart's desires, but I'm even more amazed at how much You care for the things I care about. Many times I fail to be what You called me to be and yet You never give up on me. I get so busy with life that I forget to say, "thank you Jesus". But you never turn away from me when I call.

In my secret heart, I hide so many things mainly because I don't want to worry my spouse or my friends so I tell only you. There's nothing I can't leave at your side unspoken unsung note, you know it all. I can trust you explicitly and when no one is around, you are there with me.

The times when life's path goes crooked, you know how to keep my footsteps straight. When I think I can't go on any longer, it is you that gives me the strength to push a little farther. It feels so good to know that when I gave my life to you, that you would make the most precious promises to me. You are the very best friend I could ever have. I want to feel that kind of love David in the Bible had for you. No matter how bad things got, he praised you.

The closest people around me don't always know who I am on the inside and my dreams and wishes are not easily understood to them, but not to you. You are the stems that help me to bloom and without you to hold onto me, I can't stand on my own. It is for you that I live and my love story to you Jesus is to say, "thank you" for my life and "thank you" for being my life.
