When you look into the mirror, think not upon how others perceive you; instead, think about how God sees you. To Him, you are the most beautiful thing on earth. And that's all that matters.
Please feel free to comment. I'd love to hear what you think of my feeble attempts to convey my thoughts, feelings, and imaginings.

My Soulmate

I know not who you are,
Yet my heart is rapturous at the thought of you.
I know not what you look like,
But my mind sees you vividly.
I know not your characteristics or traits,
Still my heart thrills at the very idea of spending a lifetime loving you.

The Experience

Silence fills my ears
Nothing is all I hear
Daylight fades to black
There's no turning back
Then I feel myself falling
And I hear myself calling
Suddenly, nothing.

Slowly I blink my eyes
I look around with surprise
I'm blinded by the purest light
I behold a wonderful sight
I can hear the angels singing
And a hallelujah chorus ringing
Then, He's before me
And everything else fades away...

I am alone. Very alone.
I stare up at the vast, empty sky,
And think aloud; "Is this all there is to life?"
I walk through the silent woods. I am alone.
Utterly and completely alone.
Not a bird is chirping, not a squirrel is scampering.
My heart longs to be filled.
It is crowded. I am standing amidst a thousand people.
Still, I am alone; dreadfully alone.
My soul is screaming, but no words reach my lips.
At last, I manage a feeble utterance, "God, help me!"
Suddenly, I'm not alone.

My Beloved

My Beloved

I know that you have become weary and feel the weight of the world on your shoulders. Come to Me and I will give you rest. Bring all your anxiety and fear to Me and leave them with Me. I will keep you in perfect peace when you keep your mind on Me and trust Me. I care about you.

Know that I have given you My peace. I do not give to you as the world gives... and takes away. So do not let your heart be troubled and do not be afraid. I will fill you with joy and peace if you will trust in Me.

Instead of dwelling on confusion and anxiety, present your concerns to Me in prayer. And be thankful. Then let your mind dwell on things that are true and noble, things that are right and pure, things that are lovely and admirable ~ all that is excellent and praiseworthy. And the peace you will have ~ My peace ~ you will not be able to explain to others. No one can understand it, but you can have it.

Live your life according to My instructions, and I will be with you; because I am the God of peace, My peace will stand guard over your heart and mind in Christ Jesus.
