We did it!

We are all moved in our new home!  Still arranging and trying to find pieces to things.  Trying to remember to breathe and not stress about the responsibility of it all.  Had many hands help us move things-so thankful!  Also had a ton of furniture given to us or on loan to us, again so blessed!

Was going through some books and found a folder, I think from PWOC, and the first thing in it was this poem worth sharing.

I Made Her Because I Love Her

I made her . . . She is different

She is unique

With love I formed her in her mother's womb.

I fashioned her with great joy.

I remember, with great pleasure,

the day I created her.

(Psalm 139:13-16)

I love her smile.

I love her ways.

I love to hear her laugh.

And the silly things she says and does.

She brings Me great pleasure.

This is how I made her.

(Psalm 139:17 Zephaniah 3:17)

I made her pretty and not beautiful,

Because I knew her heart,

And knew she would be vain . . .

I wanted her to search out her heart,

And to learn that it would be

Me in her

That would make her beautiful . . .

And it would be Me in her

That would draw friends to her.

(1 Peter 3:3-5)

I made her in such a way,

That she would need Me.

I made her a little more lonesome

than she would like to be . . .

Only because I need for her

to lean and depend on Me . . .

I know her heart,

I know if I had not made her like this,

She would go her own chosen way

And forget Me . . . her Creator.

(Psalm 62:5-8)

I have given her

many good and happy things

Because I love her.

(Psalm 84:11, Romans 8:23 & 37-39)

Because I love her,

I have seen her broken heart . . .

And the tears she cried alone.

I have cried with her,

And had a broken heart, too.

(Psalm 56:8 Psalm 34:18)

Many times she has stumbled

and fallen alone

Only because she would not hold

My Hand,

So many lessons she's learned

the hard way.

Because she would not listen

to My voice . . .

(Isaiah 53:6)

So many times I have set back

And sadly watched her go

her merry way alone.

Only to watch her return to

My Arms, sad and broken.

(Luke 15:7)

And now she is Mine again . . .

I made her, and then I bought her . . .

Because I love her.

(Romans 5:8)

I have to reshape her and remold her . . .

To renew her

to what I had planned for her to be.

It has not been easy for her

or for Me.

(Jeremiah 29:11)

I want her to be conformed

to My image . . .

This is the high goal I have set for her,

Because I love her.

(2 Corinthians 2:14)


"God hath from the beginning chosen you."

2 Thessalonians 2:13

 God thought of you even before He made the World,

even before He made you!

He loves you and longs to have the deepest

and closest relationship possible with you!
