Poem: Thank You For My Life


By Julian Anastasia M. B., Indonesia

Heavenly Father,
Thank you for my life on this earth,
however challenging or not.
Thank you for giving me free will to love and be loved
to make my own decisions,
to learn from my mistakes,
to laugh when I’m happy,
to cry when I’m sad.
Thank you for my family, my friends, my colleagues,
and for every other person I meet along my journey,
Thank you for giving me strength to overcome adversity,
to do what’s right for the benefit of the greater good,
and to rise above negativity.
Thank you for giving me hope
where I know there’ll be an end to world’s suffering and pain,
and the promise of a world filled with light and everlasting love.
Thank you Jesus for listening to me.
And there’s one more thing I’d like to say,
I love you Jesus more and more each day!

    After all, life is about giving thanks to God. Whatever happens, it is for our own good. We may not understand it, but in the due time, God will let us understand everything. It’s God’s way.
    Thank you for the poem. It’s very nice.

    God has spoke to me and has explained free will. I am a sinner and am struggling breaking my addictions. I said to God take away my free will to release me from addictive personality. He replied to me “if I take your free will you will not like the outcome. It will be like a mental illness that poor souls have that they cannot control. It would be like a disease that eats away your body that you cannot run from. It would be slavery with no freedom or choice. Everything the devil has done in our lives is to take our free will but when you choose the father God in your life he gives you a choice to accept his will which is pure love and freedom. Bless this poem and bless the Lord.
