A Daughter of the King

Dear Lord,


Today I would like for a moment stop the rhythm of my life, but never the beat of my heart. Today I want to stop long enough to think about your wonderful love.


One day, many years ago You created me perfect, You formed me even before I was born. You know my name, my fears and longings and even the number of hairs on my head. How can I not be in awe of You, or be grateful for everything you’ve done for me!


You have blessed me with my family, even though with our imperfections and short-comings, we are able to forgive and love each other. You’ve given me a church where I can learn, fellowship and share with others. You’ve given me a treasure chest full of valuable friends, because of them many a burden becomes easier to carry. You continuously provide our family with sources of income. You keep on giving and giving, You keep on pouring out blessings in countless ways. Your blessings are like streams of life-giving water which enable us to continue living, its more than just to live, to continue enjoying and appreciating everything you have placed around me.


Today, I want to give You my very special thank you for calling me Your daughter. I know I am a daughter of the King of Kings, I am a princess, I am royalty. Thank you Father for your meticulous and particular care in every detail of my daily life.


I love you my Father, my God, and to You I lift my voice to worship you, o my soul rejoice in You. I want to magnify Your Holy Name and give witness to your wonderful acts of love for everything you have done and continue to do in my life. I give You my heart, the rightful place in my life, the place you deserve, I want to be your true and forever daughter.


My Father you do so much for me, I have one desire, please increase my faith, my trust and confidence in You, so I can firmly hold your hand each day. Thank you for your great heart of love, your mercy and grace.
