My life has gained a lovely rhythm;
I have a gift that has come from Him.
The eyes of my heart has seen the Lord;
the eyes of my head has seen my Adored.
Bone of my bone, flesh of my flesh,
my love has its home, my song has its breath.
Give me my dream and set my love free;
bind with my life and marry me.
February 17th, 2012: I did a devotion for my church's Singles' ministry entitled, "Proposal", ending it with this poem. I talked about how our Lord Jesus made a proposal from the cross and boldly sought those who would seek Him to be part of His Bride, the church. I talked about men are to give their lives for their wives making a proposal that means the death of their singlehood and forsaking all others. I included how the marriage God intended was not so much about being happy and ending loneliness as it is about being made holy and further ending a life of the flesh and beginning a life of the Spirit using that marriage.
As said before I ended the devotion with the poem above, making sure I told everyone I was addressing this to the love of my life, named "Francine".
I was making my proposal to her, asking her to marry me before the whole group.
She said, "Yes!"
I have sought my happiness, wanting a life of holy marriage with the love of my dreams.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
