Before You Were Born

Before you were born,

God was there bringing you to life

and saying “YES”

to who you were and all you could be.

He put his arms around you even

before you knew your mother’s touch.

He has cared for you as no one ever could.

He has been your CLOSEST FRIEND and constant companion–

listening to your cry, enjoying hour laughter,

and encouraging you to follow Him.

He has never shut you out or made you feel ashamed.

He has comforted you and carried your burdens.

He has GIVEN YOU GRACE that has been new every morning.

He has been your GOD and FRIEND,

And as your Father, He has promised to be with you

all your life with all His love.
