I found this little nugget in my drafts from April, 2014. Happy Friday.
I believe in You. Not because I was forced to or told to but because You're word holds true. And in you, I have been made completely new.
I believe in You. Not because I was taught but because in your love-net I have been caught, no matter what else I sought, me, You never forgot.
I believe in You like April believes in showers, because only then, will May bring flowers. Without the rain, the downpour of grace I would not thrive from my place. My place may be tattered, broken, and torn but the grace-rain adorns me with joy reborn.
I believe in You like the trees. Their breeze offers sweet relief. Even sitting beneath the shade for brief removes all grief, replacing it with ultimate peace. Without them, I couldn't breathe. Jesus, you offer sweet relief so release these keys and increase. I decrease my disbelief because I've experienced: with You, anything I can achieve. You are my expertise.
I believe in You like a friend, whose assurance is all I need in order to mend, tending to my heart. Backwards you've bent from the moment you were sent from Heaven to defend the broken. You extend your heart, ready to spend your life befriending those named unworthy. All else, Your grace transcends which is real, and genuine You do not pretend. And sometimes, this is difficult to apprehend: That you, King Jesus, do not ascend or condemn, You humbled Yourself before all men. Yes Jesus, this is hard to comprehend.
I believe in You like fire. Powerfully, the flames crawl higher, desiring to engulf anything it can acquire; it is the ultimate purifier. Purifying, it consumes like a womb immune to my discomfort, but out of it I will bloom. I presume that You are ready to consume me like a wild monsoon. To your heart, Jesus, I wish to tune.
I believe in You like the dawn: after a long night's yawn, You'll certainly be there drawn out on the lawn, ready for the day's marathon. Through the night, the dark, it feels like You've withdrawn but boy are those feelings wrong. Pain & darkness are foregone that doesn't mean your love isn't strong. Like the dawn, you're always here, drawing near and like the dawn, you endear.
(From Jesus's heart): Let me take your hand, even better your heart. Truth and joy, I plan to impart if you choose to join this belief-journey, it takes only one step to start. The promise I can make you is true: from you I will never depart.
If you decide to follow Me, to proclaim that you believe, child, the sea of grace will unfold crashing waves of love will engulf. Peace that knows no bounds and makes no sense, will be yours to hold, life you have no need to control. Is this not the best news you can behold? I will stroll with you on streets of gold, the blessings will be countless, manifold.
Will you believe? Follow Me. I can relieve you of burdens heavy. Deceive you, I will never. Grieve with you, I commit. Retrieve you when you stray, please let me. Peace that surpasses understanding, that I can give. Life with Me is better than you can wish.
I am Love. I know no bounds. My heart will surround you with beautiful sounds. If I am with you, your love will abound resounding, astounding others towards being found. I am patient and I am kind, believe in Me, and this you'll find. Broken hearts I will bind, aligning them with mine, no longer will you be blind as you hand yourself over to me,
I who design.
