The Roars

Soulmate

Posted on July 1, 2014 at 5:15 PM

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


Hallelujah


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


But God


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

Every corner

Every secret

Every insecurity

His light shone through


He said to me,

Daughter

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.


He said,

Daughter,

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.


My Mind

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.


My heart

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

Does 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


God,

Your love is unbelievable

It blows me away

You gave your life for my soul


You are my Soulmate
