    It simply takes my breath away
    And I began to cry tears of praise
    When I think of My Father
    And His most excellent ways

    From the time I lost my earthling father
    And even before then
    He was already taking care of me
    Even before the world began

    He’s the Father of all
    Some call
    Him El Shadai
    The Lord God Almighty
    The giver of all life

    Because He is my Shepard
    I shall not want nor lack
    My Father is a gentleman and generous
    No good thing from me will He hold back
    Because in keeping his promises, He is not slack

    He is a Father that loves so much
    Everyday, He tells mercy and grace
    “Follow my child,
    as she runs this race”

    The safest place
    I can be is in His most perfect will
    He fights my battles
    All I have to do is be still

    When the world is so cold towards me
    He warms me with His love and He gives me rest
    He whispers gently to me, “I am your ‘comforter’
    And for you, I’ll always know what’s best”

    He has a love so faithful
    And truly unconditional
    It never runs out, it’s plentiful
    It’s not like man’s love, it’s exceptional
    It lasts forever, it’s eternal
    It feels so good, it’s wonderful
    There is no greater love, it’s powerful
    It can even turn the ugly beautiful

    That’s how My Father loves
    That’s just how My Father loves

    Who can compare?
    Who would even dare?

    My Father cares for me
    Though my mama and daddy forsake me
    He said He’d take care of me
    He promised He’d never leave me
    See, My Father is all together lovely
    Wonderful and Holy, Holy, Holy
    Who can compare?
    Who would even dare?

    He tells his angels to protect me
    Even as I sleep throughout the night
    Then He graces me with His presence
    In the morning when I rise

    Oh how I love Him
    Because he first loved me
    Because He gave his only son to save me
    Because He said with him I could spend eternity
    Because from the ways of the world, he’s delivered me
    Because He’s the Lord God Almighty
    Because many times I don’t deserve ‘em,
    But he keeps on blessing me!
    He’s ever FAITHFUL to me
    He keeps on loving me
    When I’m unlovable
    He keeps on loving me
    He says “My darling daughter
    Nothing can separate thee
    from my love”

    He’s my friend, my king
    He’s my savior, my everything

    I’m talking ‘bout My Father

    Hey family,
    I know I've been missing in action and probably seem more like a visitor than an actual member of the family. But the military has me all over the place! So y'all just gotta think of me as that family member that drops in every once in a while to see how everyone is. I see great things are happening since the last time I was home. I'm proud of you all!!! Keep writing and be blessed.

    Always,
    Kimdricka

    I'm glad to know the comfort that you are speaking of
    My days changed after i gave my life to God
    Sometimes i think it's him that flows these words i write more than i
    i'll be prayin for you
    be safe in the military :spinstar:
