The Sacrifice

The Sacrifice

You loved me before you even knew who I would become,

You sacrificed everything to forgive my sins,

And now I am here praying to be everything I can be through your love,

Praying that this year I can love, that I can forgive.

I have had the longest relationship with you, than with anyone else.

You were there from the beginning, 

Entering my heart with a fire full of grace,

You loved me before I was anything. 

When I grew up and became reckless,

You swept me into your arms and provided a safe haven,

Forgiving me immediately,

Showing me everything beautiful that would become my heaven.

You taught me that I could love the broken,

Bringing people into my life who taught me such valuable lessons,

Who loved me when I was the most unlovable, 

Who forgave me no matter what was revealed from my confessions.

And when he left me on the lawn of the house I grew up in,

You showed me that your love is the only one I ever needed,

And healed my heart in ways I thought it could never heal,

Showing me with you, I could never be defeated.

You gave up your life for me before even knowing who I would become,

Dying on a cross because someone betrayed you,

Still showing grace and sacrifice despite treason,

You exuded love and forgiveness as nails tore through your tissue.

Thank you for everything you sacrificed so that I may live today,

And please show me how to become you in this life,

How to forgive and love others through destruction and lies,

How to show them my own power and might.

After all, you loved me before you even knew who I would become,

You sacrificed everything to forgive my sins,

And now I am here praying to be everything I can be through your love,

Praying that this year I can love, that I can forgive.

<3 M.
