You don’t know my story, but that’s why I’m here; to tell it. My story, my testimony; my Life, Favor. As I tell the story, as I share my heart. Perhaps you may be starting to understand, why this is called; my love story. For those who still don’t get it, or is still trying to understand the Why? Let me first start with the Who; God. The love that inspires my heart, the love that has asked me to bare my soul; to share the love within. I’m not ashamed… Romans 1:16-17. My story proves, how God can use me; how His love is faithful. What He has given; first Life, then Favor!
This story is told, through the heart; of an only child. No earthly father, to help show me how to be… But I had a Daddy, forever loving on my heart; showing my soul, how to be… still. This story is about Life, Favor; His Love. I was very much an introvert, a silent river; wouldn’t come close, to describing my heart. Verbal expressions, speaking more than a few words at a time; was me. But yet, my heart had so much to say. My story isn’t unique, it isn’t any different than others; but its special… to me. You don’t have to imagine, what I have been through; I will tell it, in each story. I can’t even take credit, it’s His Love, His Favor; that has taught my heart. God, He has brought me up. What’s upon me; Life, and Favor!
I’ve been in church all my life, my heart stayed grounded; because of a praying grandmother. Even when it was kicking and screaming; she held my hand. Until at the age of fifteen, my Daddy’s love; took me by the heart. I didn’t realize it before that moment, but within the quietness; He already knew my name. Throughout the years, He was faithful. The promise; “He Will Never Leave!”I had walls, but His love was the fortress. My anchor, the firm foundation. Unwavering, how my heart will forever be. I walk, but in His victory; I stand. Are you hearing me, are you feeling me? This is not about what I had to endure, but how I thrive; because of what, He has loved me through!
It’s not about feelings, but an understanding; it’s my Life, but His Favor. About how my Daddy’s love, won my heart; blows my mind. Forever, started yesterday; but that same forever, still mine today. You don’t have to imagine, how much the love? I will share the story, along with my heart. Loose lips sink ships, but a loosed heart; conquers giants. Two things I have inherited from my Daddy; Life, Favor. Why, every day I do my best to honor Him; another Daddy’s day. Grace, Mercy, Peace, Love; what surrounds, what abounds. He walks with me, He talks with me, He holds my heart; forever in His love, because He knows my heart. I trust Him, with my soul; and He tells me, I am His own!
Daddy, do they truly get it? You’ve been loving on my soul, when the heart of a child; felt so all alone. The why, I love you so. Thank You, for being only Father; my heart has ever needed, in every sense of the word. This is not about having a love, but being in love. Your love, is all I need; everything else, meaningless. My story, this love; is my testimony. We all have a story, this is just mine. My Life, but His favor!
