Spread the love


Our first meeting?…Hmmm
Can’t really remember
But I am sure of one thing and it’s that you have always been there
You have been watching me closely
From when I was born till I was old enough to know between right and wrong
You were there during the abuse, maltreatment and the traumas
You were there when I hit puberty and my hormones went berserk
You were still so close while I was searching for answers
And needed someone to love me
You spoke through the songs I listened to every Thursday night on the radio
You spoke through the romance novels and every other book I read
But I couldn’t hear you
I just couldn’t see you but… You were there
You waited patiently until it was time
You gradually pulled me to yourself until I could no longer deny your existence
Finally I could see you but not so clearly, like i was looking through shades
My vision of you was blurry
I was yet to comprehend your love for me… still can’t anyway
How deep and how wide it runs
Endless ocean bottomless sea
I thought I’d figured you out but the journey was just beginning
I was full but not satisfied
I had the wrong perspective of you, I wanted more and more and more
I met with different people in search of answers, some understood some didn’t, some couldn’t grasp what i was searching for, but you knew
I fasted, I prayed, I fellowshipped, I communed, I followed the principles laid out by others, I even did what the good book said
But it was all wrong cos I was still seeing through shades
Finally you came crashing over me with waves after waves of love
I was completely drowned in your love but I could breathe and I could see
No longer blurry, shades all gone
I could see you clearly, like I never did
Then I knew I was your beloved bride in whom you see no stain
I could see you clothed in purity, majesty and glory
Holy, righteous, blameless, faultless, just perfect
But I wasn’t just seeing you I could see me!
I could see me in you
You were me and I was you, we were one and the same
We are one and the same
I finally found my identity
I finally know who I am
You are my identity, just as you are so I AM
You are I AM
I AM that I AM
Rom 8:38-39: For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
