The Sun Stood Still In My Life, I'm Changed Forever

I have seen the sun stand still in the dark places of my life as I've battled a couple of hateful cancers and even before. I have felt the power of the prayers of my friends, family and even strangers. God has shown Himself strong in my life and has been that friend that sticks closer than a brother. He has held my hand through dozens of surgeries, sat with me through over fifty rounds of chemotherapy, comforted me, held me, lifted up my head to see His Glory, favored me, and showered me with His amazing Grace. He has wiped away my tears and healed my mind and heart. He has kept my spirit from being crushed and my soul sustained. He is the One Who has carried me when I could not stand and I have felt the warmth of His eyes as He has watched over me. 

He is the Love of my life. He is the One Who's breath causes me to be victorious. He has never asked me to be perfect and never expects me to give anything that He, Himself, does not supply. He loved me and protected me even through times when He was the last thing on my mind. He has never lied to me and never turned His back on me. He has only given to me good things. 

What kind of love is this, I ask? 
This love is unconditional, unmerited, not earned and not jealous. This love is a greater love than we would ever be capable of comprehending. This love is unimaginable and unbelievable. This love is greater than the love for a child or spouse. This love is complete and without boundaries. And no matter what we do, this love is offered freely with no prejudice and no judgement. 
This love is our very life.
