What Defines Me

Post by Hope » Fri Aug 15, 2014 7:17 pm

What Defines Me

I looked in the mirror as the tears fell from my eyes,
This wasn’t the first, and it wouldn’t be the last time I cried.
I wasn’t even sure of who I was or what I could be,
I cried out to God asking Him, what defines me?
The room became quiet and in my heart I could hear,
God softly speaking and I felt His presence so near.
My child it’s my love and the things that you do,
The way that you live these all define you.
Not the things people say or the labels they give,
They don’t walk in your shoes, and know the life that you’ve lived.
I’m your Father who created you and the only one who sees.
All the love that you have in your heart for them and me.
Your forgiveness for the ones who have hurt you in some way,
The prayers for everyone that you always say.
The life that you live choosing to always follow me,
My child these are the things that I love to see.
Your past is now gone and your futures in my hands,
I’m the one who loves, and defines you and the only one who can.

How beautiful this is. Very uplifting and a real blessing to read. We do need to step back and try to see ourselves as the Lord sees us and we may be surprised by what He sees. He sees Jesus. We are His children and He loves us unconditionally. Love this Hope. It will bless all who read it. God bless you as you do so many.

Love, Sharlee.

No one knows us as God does, and He is all that matters dear friend. In a sense, we also define Him, when we live our life as a faithful follower of His Son Jesus, as we are also created in God's image. Very well said Eva, as only you can. GLYASDI
Live today as if it were your last, for tomorrow it will be your past, but live it with peace in mind, joy to find, and for God divine!

Steve,
Thank you, I never looked at it that we define God in a sense also while following Jesus! That really makes you think about the way you live. I am learning something new everyday :D !

God Bless You Love Eva
