For My Husband
Updated: Apr 17, 2020
The world says you don’t exist.
That a man clothed in righteousness won’t appear.
There are only men who pretend.
It’s impossible to be faithful,
Impossible to be pure,
Impossible to be gentle, a servant, humble, and strong. ⠀
You won’t hear God's voice
If you did; you won’t obey IT.
You’ll serve Him from obligation; not overwhelming love
You won’t KNOW Him.
You won’t call attention to boys and men
You’ll still be a boy. ⠀⠀
But That’s what they say. ⠀⠀
But I say no!
No, No You’re WON'T and will NEVER be the savior -
But You will point others to Him.
You'll be righteous
Your eyes have caught His gaze. ⠀⠀
You’ll be perfect, as you’re being perfected by Him.
Not to complete me, but to shine under the radiance of the Son.
Everything darkness and those devoid of light have spoken over you,
Your presence, or lack thereof - is now broken. ⠀⠀
It’s broken! ⠀⠀
No power does the world’s voice have over you.
You’re pure! You’re a leader. You serve.
Everyone under your influence is elevated
You instill esteem and courage.
You’re a man after God’s own heart raising up both boys and men. ⠀⠀
Given a Powerful voice by the Father.
Strong because of His strength.
The world, it’s burdens, aren’t on your shoulders, it's on HIS. ⠀⠀
Shine! Shine under His presence Baby. Shine! ⠀⠀
It’s the best way you can serve me.
Run hard after Him.
It’s the best way you can love me.
You Hear His voice and obey it.
He speaks I love you and you weep. ⠀⠀
He raises you up as a mighty warrior
You fight from a place of victory
for your family, your friends, your enemies, and the lost. ⠀⠀
I marvel at the love between the Father and a son.
I see the heart of God, for me, all over again
And I, am undone.
I’m undone, by a God that would give up His SON for me.
And now, by meeting you
I’m undone by a God that provides His son to me. ⠀⠀
A God that would save such a sweet soul for me.
Your salvation causes me to look up and thank God.
It motivates me to continue to workout mines. ⠀
Indeed you do exist. ⠀⠀
