Ran Into Love

She was waiting

for someone

to save her

Walked around

with a nagging pain

in her heart

She was never free

to love or

be loved

A life of ups

and downs

Sinking deeper daily

to a place of

no return

She never tasted

the depth of

Papa’s love

Pain and despair

followed her everywhere

She tried to fill

the void in her heart

With whatever

the enemy sent

her way

No one saw

behind her smile

Though her eyes

told a story

of a life

drenched in pain

She gave away her power

to anyone who noticed her

Allowed broken people

to define her

Allowed the enemy

to write her life’s story

While she kept quiet

She disappeared in

the background

Voiceless!

Hopeless!

Faithless!

She never knew her worth

Surrounded by hurting people

She embraced the identity

they chose for her

She took all these negative labels

She made it hers

Walked with her scars

She played the part

Of a nameless, faceless, worthless daughter

Till she ran into Love

and

Love ran into her

Alone and rejected

Your love

drew her in

To places she never visited

Places where Your daughters

discover their worth

Where You heal our hearts

and erase our pain

Where we discover the depth

and width of Your love

Forever changed when we

encounter Your heart

We are forever changed

when we know how much

we are loved

Soaking in Your presence

was a life line to her

You healed her heart

Your love dispels all her fears

You showed her the gifts and

talents You graced her with

She blossomed before Your eyes

Into the fearless, set apart bride

You have marked her for

Oh! Papa is head over heels in

love with her!

The girl with the issues

The shy girl

hiding in the background

Is no more!

She is boldly taking her place

as His end time bride

Forever changed

The day she ran into Love

and

Love ran into her.
