More important than air
Although His absence is not so immediately felt
More valuable than treasure
Although treasure hunters ignore Him
More a friend than my best friend since 4th grade
Better than my favourite ice cream
And sweeter still
More necessary than medication
My cure for stress and care
More beautiful than dance
And my dearest passion over music
To others I might have it all
But without Him I never would have gone.
Without Him, I would have never left my home
To go to strange lands and explore.
For He led me on a Mission Trip around the world
My plan was to study Science and law
His plan to release the gift of creativity
He had placed inside my soul.
Without Him, you would never have wanted to meet me,
A girl so proud and insecure that she only spoke
To spew the correct view of a subject
And you, she ignored with all of her strength.
Without him, my natural compassion would have stayed buried
Underneath the fear of rejection.
My tears would always freeze, my laughter go silent.
That was before I let Him in
Allowed Him to transform me and take control!
Now I have peace, joy and life
And Fear, my old slave driver, is gone!
He is the reason my dreams have soared.
Now I step forward into a future uncharted.
But full of confidence for I am with Him,
My God, Saviour and Friend,
Jesus Christ, the Lord God Almighty
The one person I cannot live without.
