Poem not sure of date, maybe January 2020.
My heart be still. My heart be still. Sometimes you must stop. Sometimes you must be real. Not trying to impress anyone…Not trying to be anything I’m not… Feeling something down deep inside of me trying to come out. Longing for words, and forms, and shapes…longing to just be. No judgements…just me. It’s me and Jesus now. Journeying this life as one… When life starts to get the best of me when I’m feeling besides myself… When the condemnation starts to fall… Jesus calls out to me. He pulls me through it all. He says, “Come. Come. Come. Come to Me, Come to the Living well…I am the water that restores your soul. I speak tender love songs to you. I do not see you that way at all. You are perfect in me. I made you perfectly. You don’t have to be anything. Just be here with me. Here with me. Here with me. Here with me. I love you through it all. I love you perfectly, perfectly, perfectly. Yes, I sent Jesus. He did it all. No more running. No more hiding. No more shame. You’re tattered pieces are being put together; You’re being made whole. I love you perfectly, perfectly, perfectly. In me is everything. Everything you need. Rest in me. Lay your burdens down at me feet. Stop worrying. Be here with me. Here with me. Here with me. I’m doing it all…saving you, restoring you; you’re being made well. Just be you. You and me. You and me. You and me…easily…gently…lightly. I kiss you with butterfly kisses, tell you it will all be Ok. You are safe now…Here with Me, here with Me, here with me…I will always be here for you. I will always love you, love you, love you like no other. Love you whole. Love you well. LOVE you whole, love you well…simply for being you. Just be you. I’ll give you form. I’ll give you shape, I’ll give you everything you need. I’ll give you words. I put my Spirit in you. It’s me and you. Me and you. Me and you flying through this life. Flying through it all. Me and you. Nothing can hold you back from doing my will. I love you, love you, love you perfectly throughout this life, through all eternity…You’ll always be a darling to me. I love you through it all.
