Unless It’s With You

(Read with the music playing 🙂 )

little girl
she hopped through the field
she stooped down to look

“oh, look!”
a lily here, a daisy there
her little hands plucked away
gathering flower after flower

to her dismay, the beauty fell apart
right in her hands
the flowers withered, color faded
fragrance lingered to nonexistence

little girl, she cried
tears, they furnished a bed of grass
tired&weary, she laid on the field
her eyes opened up to the sky
she was surrounded by beauty
and in peace she fell asleep

when she awoke, the Sun was shining down
on her
she squinted her eyes toward the Sun
squinting harder, she could see there was Someone before her

“Where have you been? I have been calling your name.”
The Man’s voice was firm and concerned
“But at last we are together!”
And she saw His eyes, they glistened in compassion

Her heart leapt, and she rose to hug her Father
she gathered the flowers of the field
and with greatest care and love
–truly from the bottom of her heart
she raised her hands up to her Father
confidently holding the flowers to Him

“These are for You!”
And she fixed her gaze, awaiting His response
He was so delighted, He lifted her and spun her
Then He softly let her stand again
And He carried the flowers in His hand
With His other hand He held His daughter’s hand

{She was never so happy
as when He delighted in her}

Time passed and the flowers grew
The flowers were beautifully vibrant
Smelling of goodness and love

The girl grew as well
And she grew in her Father’s care
Their Home was on that field
The field that He had bought for her

she began to see Truth
then she thought
“I am not able to enjoy this field, this beauty, this life, unless it is enjoyed with my Father.”

–Now forever giving flowers to Him

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5&6

confidently[radically], trust Him
