I Cant Thank God Enough For You

Taylor Hernandez

Sometimes I look at you and pinch myself. The smile that flits across your face, the laugh that’s so damn genuine spilling from your mouth, the way your hand fits so effortlessly with mine, the way we’ve simply become one another’s–without trying, without question–it’s so beautiful.

I spent so many months searching, so many years, even, thinking that I was somehow behind the rest of the world. That there was something wrong with me because I hadn’t detected the one. That I was somehow lacking, somehow inefficient, incapable of find love.

And then, there you were. An answer to a prayer I had spoken mutely so long ago. A man who was nothing like I’d imagined, and yet everything I could ever want. A human whose love and kindness and strength and joy filled me every time his words and kisses left his lips.

A man I could finally devote my heart to, without fear.

I had been looking for you. Looking, and yet not looking at all. I was hopeful. I trusted. But I busied myself with other things, filled my schedule, run around trying to confuse myself. I knew God would bring me the right person when the timing was perfect. Even if that timing was longer than I wanted.

I knew God would wait until I was less focused on myself and my desires, and more on its main purpose. I knew I had to be patient, had to trust He would bring you to me, me to you, us together.

God answered my prayers with you. He brought me someone far greater than I could ever imagine, someone who challenges me, grows alongside me, and chooses me, every single day .

And I frankly can’t thank Him enough for you. For the way He brought me you when I least expected. For the route He taught me to trust, to listen, to love openly and not worry so much about where I measured up, or the label of my relationship status. For the way I have learned that everything fall according to His plan, and when I let go and let Him, I really do find peace.

I can’t thank God enough for the way He’s blessed me. With the way He’s brought me you–with your gentleness and toughness, with your passion and care, with your maturity and allegiance and the route I’ve never had to doubt whether this, whether us was right.

I don’t know where our story will take us. I don’t know if we will fall closer, or apart. I don’t know if we’ll always feel this wonderful, or if our life together will be easy. And frankly, when I think about it, I know it won’t.

Because I know God has brought me you for a reason. And I know our love, and my religion in Him will pull us through.

Every morning when I wake, every night when I fall asleep I can’t help but pray–for us, for you, for all that we will grow into as the working day pass.

God has given me the biggest blessing, in a way I never find coming. We bumped into each other in what felt like road traffic accidents, but I know He had a plan all along. And I can’t thank Him enough for your tender hands, trustworthy eyes, limbs and body and soul that lifts me and builds “i m feeling” alive.

I can’t thank God enough for all the ways He has healed my broken heart and made me into a woman deserving of you, and you, a man equally deserving of my love.

I can’t thank Him enough for who we are, and will become. And I can’t just waiting honor Him in loving you as fiercely as I can.
