What Love Is This?

Once upon a time....
in a dark and gloomy era
My life had been a constant struggle to feel loved and accepted by people around me.
with a constant longing...
for someone to reach out their hand and tell me that i am good enough.
for someone to love me for the girl that i am.
for someone to validate that i am worth of something good.
The more i searched...
The more it hurts,
The more i got rejected
The more my worth was reduced to a few opinions of people i thought mattered...
The more emptier i felt..
The more lonely it got in that lil space i had opened to receive the love of people
The more it felt like the only person that cared about me was me.

Then one full moon,
a knight...
all dressed in white came my was
He was so beautiful, words cant do Him justice
Strong and majestic...
yet gentle and warm
His eyes burned like fire...yet there was so much love in them.
My eyes had not seen Him before, yet my soul knew HIM very well.

He reached for my hand...looked into my eyes
He did not utter a word...
But to my soul He said everything that i had longed to hear since i was little
...He said that i was His and He was mine
And that He had loved from the very begginning of time
Before i was concived in my mothers womb, He had Known me and He had loved me
I have never felt anything so great
I have never experienced love so perfect
In receiving His love, I am also learning to love others around me with that same kind of love
im learning to see others through His fire burning eyes filled with love and compassion
I have found true acceptance in His love

And i pray that you would shower everyone across the world with your life transforming love
