25 Years of Him

Today is my spiritual birthday.  Twenty-five years ago today, at age 17, I bowed my knee AND heart for the first time to Him and began walking in His ways.  For 25 years I have found Him faithful.  He has been my Help and my Hope, my Hiding Place and my Strong Tower.  He has been my Joy and my Comfort, my Shield and my Friend.  He has taught me, corrected me, convicted me, loved me.  He has cried with me, laughed with me and listened to me.  He has wiped my tears, whispered words of hope to my heart, opened my eyes to my sin and reminded me of His grace.  He has been the Daddy I never had, my Alpha and Omega and Everything in Between.  He has been an Amazing God, to Whom I owe my allegiance, my submission, my obedience, my life.  And I can't wait for the day to bow my knee in His very presence and give Him the rightful praise that He is so worthy of.

Thank You for these 25 years, Abba.  You are truly an Awesome God and I love You.
