my God

   God is more than just my God. I mean, He obviously is my God. He is my omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient God. He is Lord of creation, Ruler of the universe. But His identity, the essence of who He is goes far beyond this.
   God is my savior. He gave everything for me. When it comes to me, He holds nothing back. To Him, I am worth it all. I owe Him my life, all that I am. He rescued me from the deep, dark depths of depression. He took away all fear of death and gave me hope. He saved me.
   God is my father. He is my Heavenly daddy,  and He is the best dad anyone could ever ask for (obviously). He is always providing for me, always watching out for me. He loves to teach me new things, and I love it when He shows me the world in ways I've never seen it.
   God is my friend. He puts up with my crap, listens to my rants, gives the best advice even when He knows I won't listen, and holds me when I cry. I can always depend on Him. He loves to spend time with me. He's got my back. He always finds a way to make me smile. We're pretty much besties.
   God is my bridegroom. He loves me for who I am, and in spite of who I am. He is the best thing that's ever happened to me. He calls me "Beloved." He delights in me. I am forever longing for the day when we'll see each other face to face, when we'll be together forever.
   God is my teacher, my comforter, the only thing that keeps me going. He is everlasting, holy, beyond description. He's everything I ever needed. He is my God.
