***And He told me He loved me***


I ached all over
I broke down in tears
I cried till I drowned
I died inside
I eloped again
I feigned peace though I felt it not
I groaned for His mercy
I hid from His grace
I itched for love
I joked about it
I killed myself inside
I laughed on the outside
I moaned once again
I nulled myself with ice

Therefore...

I opted out of the game but
I pulled myself back inside again
I queued on a very long line
I rummaged for faces I recognized
I sat on the grass alone
I told myself it was a lie
I understood it NOT...
I verified the words...
I whirled my thoughts around and around...
I xeroxed the book pages just trying to gain my sanity...
I yearned for a re-birth
I zealously researched for LOVE in the book of all books....

Then finally, I found the words I was searching for...

After going from A to Z,
on the wake of valentines morning,
"He told me He loved me..."


John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him, shall not perish but have everlasting LIFE."
