I was created to know ‘I am loved’,
Created by God in heaven above,
To live as a child who never need fear,
That Fathers love would, one day disappear…
Created by God to live life ‘care- free’,
Knowing my father delighted in me.
Discovering my ‘self’ through loves eyes alone,
With trust undisturbed in this safe place called ‘home’.
But then in a moment a rift was formed,
And the heart of God’s child forever torn,
Frightened and fearful with no place to turn,
They’re backs faced the one whose love they now spurned.
Angry and frightened, lashing out in deep pain,
Looking for someone to accused and to blame,
For the stabbing pain piercing their heart,
Loves light now extinguished, as they peered into the dark.
Then into their darkness loves light entered in
Piercing the darkness, exposing the sin,
Breaking the shackles of shame and fear
Bidding all ‘come, walk free of despair’…
‘Walk into the arms of my great love,
In rest, find your answer and life from above,
Cease from your struggling, there’s nothing to prove,
Lean into my love and you’ll then learn to choose…
Life in my presence, as love shapes your soul,
In your quiet surrender, my love heals and makes whole.
I knew you and chose you, long before man’s fall
As a seed in my heart, that was yet to take form.
Now restored to loves light, your soul is reborn,
By my breath of life, your soul’s shape is formed…
For you are becoming the ‘you’ I had planned …
Before earth’s first day or the fall of man.
