Let me open the door between her world and yours.
There are those who come along and they have a depth and radiant quality that can only be compared to Golg in The Silver Chair telling Rilian, “I have heard of those little scratches in the crust that you Top-dwellers call mines. But that’s where you get dead gold, dead silver, dead gems. Down in Bism we have them alive and growing. There I’ll pick you bunches of rubies that you can eat and squeeze you a cup full of diamond-juice. You won’t care much about fingering the cold, dead treasures of your shallow mines after you have tasted the live ones of Bism.”
Let me introduce to you Molly. She is all green with new growth yet all ripe with Jesus- and all this at the same time. Out of the heart, the mouth speaks, and the writer writes. I look forward to seeing more from Molly, for now here is one of her poems. God is very much alive in her.
Nobody said it was gonna be easy.
It ain’t gonna be a piece of cake, sorry if I’m being cheesy, but really…
I know one person who said we can do ALL things…
That person’s name is Jesus, the one who saved us, made us, and created us whole. We were once broken pieces but He held them all…
He knows we cannot do this on our own, He will catch us when we fall, He will lift us up and we will become invincible.
We are the light in this dark world, no matter if you’re a boy or girl, He will use YOU, now that is plural. It hurts my heart to see you all doubt your great gifts.
Remember, what breaks my heart also, breaks His. But get this. He still loves you.
Marinate in that. Soak your mind in that because His word is based on truth and fact,
His love will never lack,
His comfort and peace will attract His people,
His sons and daughters, please drink this holy water, ain’t you
thirsty??? Aren’t you parched?
Why are you leaving, I didn’t even start.. I want to highlight His will for your life.
You don’t have to listen to me but listen to this Guy.. Jesus who fights and dies for the affection and love. I can’t imagine any other guy who would want me just because… He wants all of you. It doesn’t matter where you’ve been or what you’ve done. He wants it all, because you ARE good enough. You are enough. In His eyes, you are His truest, truest prize. He wants to show you off and tell them, “yup, this child is mine”. What better feeling to know that your are worthy and you are loved. What better feeling to have a God who sees you as enough. I know this world ain’t going to be easy, it will be rough and I know you are extremely tough, but I just want you to remember… through His eyes, You. Are. Enough.
John 15 New International Version (NIV)
9 “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.
