Hey everyone !
So, in our culture, there is a lot of emphasis on finding your "soulmate". But, I've come to realise that the creator of my soul is my soulmate. Think about it, Ephesians 1:4-5 says:
Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. 5 God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.
He loved us before Genesis; He chose our souls even before we were even a thought.
It blows me away everytime I meditate on that truth and led me to write this poem. Hope you all like it
My soul is overwhelmed by Your love for me
It sings with words that cannot be understood
It praises in a way that cannot be contained
It cries one word
Again and again and again
It was drowning in darkness
No shadows existed for
There was no light to create them
The term black hole derived from the
State that was my soul
See, my soul was without form and void,
Darkness covered the surface
And went deeper and deeper
than anyone could've imagined
But He spoke
His breath carried Light
And it permeated the darkness
His light shone through
He said to me,
Thou art beautiful.
You only believed you were ugly because you couldn't see clearly
But look at your reflection in my eyes when I look at you.
And in Him, I was beautiful.
Your worth and value were buried under the darkness that you had accepted from life
I banished that darkness
I've carried the burden that you are carrying unnecessarily
I've set you free
And I saw that I was valuable to Him and made worthy because of Him.
My life changed.
Where darkness roamed free
Where my thoughts were in slavery
My dreams submitted to him underneath me
It was free
Oh, the thoughts of worship that were finally released
Oh, the peace
For darkness was chaos and chaos used to reign
But there was no match for the might in His Light.
Oh, that battlefield
Where the amount of wars in my world is much larger than three
Where every day is a battle between the Holy Spirit and my humanity
Where guarding may falter
Where tears find their source
Where the validity of my smile is determined
This is where the battle is
My heart wrestles with God,
It fights and struggles and doesn't give up
Because sin nature pumps it's blood
And sin is a lover that refuses to cease and desist
Which is why it's imperative that we resist,
that we stay focused lest we be deceived
So I wrestle
For from the struggle comes surrender
And from surrender comes submission.
And it gets to that point where my heart can say,
Lord take this cup
But Even If
Even if I don't get my way
Even if it's harder
Even if I must fight myself
Even if I must painfully rip away the clinging hands of sin
Your will be done
And then my soul,
The beginning of the transformation
Where darkness was exiled
Where Light now calls home
My soul belongs to The Lord, my God
It is marked with Christ's signature:
It is finished written in His blood
Darkness said grave
God said grace
Darkness says hate
My soul says mate
Your love is unbelievable
It blows me away
You gave your life for my soul
You are my Soulmate
