I picked up a magazine yesterday, crafting images filled the cover to the brim, imagine how disappointed I was to find nothing I wanted when I looked within.
It made me think of how I used to be, hiding behind covers so often in my life, trying to hide with pretty pictures and words, that inside I was full of sorrow and strife.
The covers worked well, most people never knew the hole there was inside of me, and instead of being that carefree person they saw, there was a beaten spirit longing to be free.
Then one day I met Some one who just knew, He saw deep inside my heart and soul, and offered to me in the gentlest of voices, to save me and make me whole.
I accepted that offer, even though I had resisted before, hoping that this was really true, and the moment I did, peace flowed over and inside me, Jesus transformed me and made me brand new.
He wiped away the hurt and the pain, and replaced them with His gifts from above, and at last I felt the hole inside me being filled, it had been waiting just for His love.
That was just the beginning of the adventure He planned, the journey was not ending, it had just begun, for He was preparing my heart yet again, to meet the man with whom I could be one.
When I was ready, my heart beginning to learn trust, ready to accept love if it ever came, Into my life God sent you to me, and I knew my life would never again be the same.
How could my heart hold this much joy, when we met, it overflowed and I just knew, that you were the one my heart had been waiting for, the wonder of love was mine, all wrapped up in you!
Now there are no covers at all, what we are inside is plain to see, that the love God has for each of us, is reflected in the love transforming you and me!
I thank God every day for loving me enough, to make me over, create me anew, and then to give me the desire of my heart, this life of joy I have loving you!
