He Spoke Life Over Me

He walked passed me

and He saw me

When no one saw me

Alone, struggling in my own blood

Fighting my own fights

He spoke life over me

I was not even aware of His love for me

I was not even aware of my need of a Saviour

Living a life of compromise

No safe place or someone I could call home

Searching for anything and anyone

To fill this big hole in my heart

I tried to fill it with alcohol, tattoos, piercings, sex, you name it…I’ve probably done it

My way of dealing with

this nagging emptiness

Which I could never give a name

Avoid facing my fears

Too much effort to deal with it

Easier to go with the flow

The list of my ‘painkillers’

grew longer and longer

Don’t most of us have our own?

Yet, it could never remove my pain

permanently

Still I would never admit to it

Pride kept me bound

Darkness my norm and the standard I lived by

I never knew that a life of freedom

was available to me

Till He passed by me

and spoke life over me

He said ‘Live’ to the desperate me

The ‘me’ living a life of lies

One encounter that would forever

transform me

One word was all I needed

To open my eyes to the rags

I was dressed in

For the first time

I knew I was worthy

‘Live’ meant that someone saw me

That I was not a mistake

That I was worthy of a love so great

He passed by me again and

it was my time for love

He washed off my blood

together with my past

Anointed me with oil

Covered my nakedness

that was visible to all

My past and my pain

He erased it all

He swore an oath and entered into

a covenant with me

A wayward child whose

Life story was now rewritten

with His precious blood

A covenant that would stand the tests of time

The processes of the journey

Different seasons and times

Through the highs and lows

The valleys and mountains

because I knew Who was with me

Transforming me daily to be more like Him

I was clothed in fine linen and covered with silk

Sandals of badger skin were put on my feet

Adorned with silver and gold

Put on display for everyone to see

That no one is beyond

His amazing grace

Different journeys

He can use us all

He perfects us daily by His grace

Our limps

Our struggles

Our shortcomings

Turned into testimonies

Changing atmospheres wherever we go

Touching hearts as we journey on

Spreading the Good News

that started it all.
