This haiku is made by my friend.
I want to know what picture/object comes to your mind with this one 🙂
Daughter, you hear Me say it true: I begin a new thing in you.
The past is behind you. I was there with you. I can show you where I was.
Looking back is not bad, but staying there is not my plan. Let Me place my hand on the places of pain, where you feel alone, where you cry out for rescue.
I have rescued you, daughter. I created your frame, the contours of your skin, the timing of the way your eyes close, just so. I know your makeup, all the details of you, your entire story.
I author you, daughter.
The drafting of your story, your hand in mine . . . there is paper not more beautiful–curls of letters that make Me smile.
Daughter, the story of your name is written in my book, your beginning, the moment where you felt you ended and I begin. That is your beginning, child.
You begin where you end and I begin.
And the story keeps writing, child. After beginning there is adventure. After beginning there is trust and falling and catching and believing and choosing and waiting. There is much waiting and beginning again.
Your story running right off the page with Me.

I am the beginning, my love. I am your beginning. There is no where else you need to look. There is nothing else you need to chase down. I speak to your heart—in whispers, in moments.
This moment now, my dear. This moment now. And the next one . . . and when you turn away from these printed words, too. I do not exist on the page, but in your heart—in the moments I give you. Each breath a testament to my life in you. Each sigh and tear and reaching for Me. I am in the middle. I am right here, in the middle, child. You are held, and I can’t ever let you go.
It is not about what you do. You do from life in Me and you strive in life without Me. Reaching for Me is not the same as striving to attain something on your own. Reach for Me, and you have Me. Reach for other things—without Me—and these are things you should not attain.
Let Me show you what is for us to do together.

Who would want this??
Something that is far from what this world offers
Can anybody have it? Or give it?
A love to be given to an enemy
A life laid down for a sinner like me
Wake me up! Open my eyes!
Coz’ it doesn’t make sense
Love that forgives over and over
One thing that keeps no record of wrong
Love that ruins fears
Always hopes and always perseveres
Something that is here all along
To break and torn every chain
To bring freedom and victory
that could neither be explained by mere words
Nor could ever be comprehended by just a creation’s mind
“This love is an everyday kind of love”
A Love that makes no sense
Inspired by This Love by Housfires II
Love is a choice.
Loving God is choosing Him.
It is an everyday decision.
Don’t let the enemy take hold of you.
Let your mind be renewed each day
The throne of grace and mercy
It’s always open, it will never shut
Let your past be past
Look ahead and rise up!
Rise up for Love! Rise up for Christ.
You are never worthless!
Let the darkness cripple with
The glorious light of truth!
Let all the lies be lies and let them burn and die!
For you and I are meant to live!
To be free of bondage and to be set apart.
Love is a choice!
Let’s celebrate in it and with it!
Let us live a life of love!
Let all of our being proclaim,
“FOR ME TO LIVE IS CHRIST”
At dawn You appeared and people gathered
To hear Your word, they might have been worthy
But then with pharisees, I came near You
Not to hear your teachings but
It’s because I was caught sinning
I am an adulterous woman
I knew what would happen soon
My blood might shed anytime soon
You bent down and wrote something on the ground
They’re now so mad with hands full of stones
I was so afraid and embarrassed
You stood up and said
“If any one is without sin then be the first to throw a stone”
Suddenly I heard the rocks hit the ground
One by one they turned and left
Til’ there’s no one but You and I
I felt more ashamed than ever before
Saw how dirty I am to be infront of You
Yet nobody condemned me
And neither do You
This day changed my life ever
Your words changed my heart forever
“Go now and leave a life of sin.”
