Because as much as I often look down on poetry, sometimes it is easier to express such things with. ☺
So this is what it means To be loved Even seen Yet still reached for He poured out his lifeblood Just to cleanse me He reached to all ends Just to live in me Now I know what it means That He loves me. So this is what it means To taste freedom To be set loose To live without bondage He didn’t just cleanse me He filled me with life His power dwells in me He’s set me free Now I know what it means That He saved me. He’s here, not just there He within, not around He’s living, breathing Inside and out My God is alive. Now I know what it means That He’s with me. So I’m redeemed Yes, I’m cherished. I’m alive, no longer numb I may not feel, but I know. That He’s list’ning. For no matter my chaos No matter my darkness He walked through it all And stays even now, So I know what it means That He’s my friend. I breath in And I gasp For He says That He’s here. So this is what it means To conquer death To be filled with the power Of the One who won all This is what it means To be Overcomer. And so I stand In this truth discovered Knowing what it means To be what I am For this is what it means To be child, to be daughter To be loved. This is what it means That He’s here.
May God be with you this week. I pray He would speak to you and perhaps give you a glimpse of what it means that He gave himself for you. ❤
"Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God, who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, who keeps faith forever; who executes justice for the oppressed, who gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets the prisoners free;" -Psalm 146.5-7 (ESV) "Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?" -Matthew 6:26 (ESV)
Note: This post is dedicated to my dear friend Mary, who continues to remind me that I am redeemed and beloved of God despite the chaos of other voices telling me otherwise.
