The Softest Touch
Author requests article critique
And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; That ye may approve things that are excellent;
that ye may be sincere
and without offence till the day of Christ; Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ,
unto the glory and praise of God.
The Softest Touch
I cannot forget the past,
though I’ve left it far behind.
It’s been a long, hard battle
to the clearing of my mind.
Even still, though I’ve come far,
it disturbs me that I find
the softest touch unnerving,
though often seems to be kind.
You may think me an angel
for my solid servant’s heart.
I’ve never seen one broken,
nor do angels fall apart.
I don’t mind that you know me.
I just don’t know where to start.
I still fear the softest touch
and your kindnesses still smart.
Through submission to my Lord,
I somehow learned to let go.
Now, what God has planned for me
I won’t even claim to know.
I take this day by itself,
try hard to roll with the flow.
Don’t mind sharing it with you.
All I ask is please go slow.
The softest touch unnerves me.
It just takes me by surprise.
The little girl inside me
has seen too much with these eyes.
Though my heart believes there’s love,
to know it, it even cries,
the softest touch unnerves me.
It’s too often a disguise.
Stop to question your motives.
Then tell me, what do you see?
What is it you hope to gain
by being so kind to me?
The end of selfish motives
will, for eternity be
eventually brought to light,
to the bowing down of knees.
The softest touch unnerves me
if I don’t know why you do
the things you do unto me
or what things you hope to prove.
There are those who are sincere.
I know for I’ve met a few.
Their touches don’t unnerve me
for their hearts are pure and true.

2 Corinthians 11:12-16
But what I do, that I will do,
that I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion; that wherein THEY glory
, they may be found even as we. For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. I say again, Let no man think me a fool; if otherwise, yet as a fool receive me, that I may boast myself a little.

Wow! I can relate to this in ways that are different from yours, because of different but personal experiences. I find it hard to trust some people myself because of the extremes they have gone to hurt me. It is so wonderful how God lets us know who we can really trust. Sister, I appreciate your honesty in writing this. You are a blessing to me.

This is wonderful. I love the softest touch refrain. I hope whoever is unnerving you is pure and worthy. I love this honest, searing expression of the fear and hope...as you learn to trust. Hugs! :)

Treava, You write so honestly about what you are feeling as you learn to trust the people in your life. You have already begun to trust by being so vulnerable and sharing your emotions with us. You take us to a very special place in your heart where we can watch this transformation take place. It takes great courage to put past hurts aside and move forward. Not only are you making great strides, but you are opening your heart and soul to show others it can be done. It is an honor to witness this phase of your life. You are amazing and full of God's Grace! With love, Peggy

Dear Joyce - I can so much relate to this honest expression of your heart. I too am very cautious about trusting people. God is helping me, the more I trust in Him, the more he brings Godly, loving people into my life. I pray He blesses you with perfect love, trust and joy in your walk with Him. In Christ's Love,

His healing is such a gentle process. Thank You, Lord for healing and learning to trust again. This is beautiful and honest.

May His touch always be the softest and the sweetest and most gentlest touch of all. You are a beautiful person with a beautiful and pure heart, and we all love you so very much. Hugs, Sharon

Oh how my heart reacts to your precious words. My Trish was so apprehensive the first time I expressed my love for her. She was so warn and tattered by life’s falsities that it took time for her to trust anyone, as it should have. I truly believe God showed her my heart so she could let go and give her heart to mine. We both yearn to hear of your much awaited desire to become a reality. Till then, be like the waterfall you have envisioned; flowing with the refreshing cool waters of faith, hope, and great expectations. You are so loved!
