from his trash, to His treasure
from his trash,
to His treasure

That moment you realize
that you’ve been discarded.
your heart and mind have parted.
Grasping her chest from the ache –
as if its repented…
tears flowing down her face,
knowing he meant it,
mind full of doubt,
“what did I do wrong?!”,
she screams out!
She saw a king
from the outside looking in…
Not knowing that the light that shined within
that made her a Queen, he would eventually dim.
He consumed her in such a tranquil way
she easily retreated to submission
without even thinking.
This obedience blinded her
from her purpose, her mission.
He fulfilled an emptiness she
didn’t even realize she was missing.
She slowly began to lather him with her love
with a scent so sweet
he devoured it,
her love was his personal treat.
And it was something for years
he decided he would keep.
Not because he loved her in return,
simply because… it was so sweet, it was his –
the nectar of gods, daily he would drink
Gaining super powers
While replenishing her with kryptonite
And when she was at her weakest
he decided he would take flight.
Her love no longer needed,
her love no longer valued…
he quickly disappeared amongst past shadows.
A past that’s reflection mirrored –
abuse, abandonment and rejection.
His presence that once consumed
and caressed her soul
was loves hallucination,
drenched in mind control.
What she and
so many other women fail to know
Our value isn’t his to hold.
That smile of his that turned self-satisfied
with no regret
It is not your shame to own,
Jesus paid that debt!
And because it is He to whom you belong –
Your light remains lit!
It is through the darkness
Of pain and struggle
that we are humbled.
Humbled before the Lord…
It is you He adorns.
Basking in the Light that is His Love,
inhaling His presence,
attaining His strength to keep shining…
While emulating His essence.
You are carved,
With Godly purpose
and perfectly molded,
fearfully and wonderfully made…
grace and mercy aligned in you
which Jesus gave.
Crowned a Queen –
It is He to whom
Your value is measured.
Ephesians 2:19 – 22
“Whenever you feel unloved, unimportant or insecure, remember to whom you belong.”
