10 things I love about YouÖ.

I love the way You hold me close
In my darkest, most fearful night
I love it when I fall asleep
Knowing Iíll never leave Your sight

I love Your strength pulling me out of bed
When Iím too weak to face the day
I love the promise whispered in my ear:
By my side is where You will stay

I love to feel the sun on my face
It brings warmth to my shattered heart
I love how it drives the emptiness out,
Bringing the promise of a brand new start

I love to walk and talk with You
About the pain that life can bring
Your soft reminder of the joy it can hold
Soothes the heartbreak, fear and sting

I love how You answer my every prayer
Even if itís not going my way
I love how You always know whatís best
Your patience with my feet of clay

I love the friends and family You gave
You knew I would need them so
I love the power You gave to them
To help me with lifeís every blow

I love the promises in Your word
Of infinite love and grace
This I will never understand
All I can do is: embrace!

I love how I grow in trusting You
You bring it with the passing of time
It might not look that way now,
But I know the victory is mine!

I love to know my path is decided
Your plan for me only the best
Knowing Your mighty hand is at work
Wipes away fear, and gives me rest

I love to glimpse the greatness of You
It comforts my troubled soul
It promises that You will pick me up
And make my broken heart wholeÖ.

I love this poem. We all should be continually thankful for all God has done. This poem expresses that so well. Thanks for your critiqe on my story, "The Stadium." Your comments were very helpful. I made some changes and modification according to what you suggested. It you get a chance, take a look and see if it sounds better. I want this to be a good story, but not full of redundancies. Thanks for your imput and God bless you and your family...Randy Gene (I don't have faithwriters message service, but my email is: hymn_lover@yahoo.com)
