Named

I kneel before You,
Defeated, and trembling,
With empty hands –

And You –
You call me beautiful.

You call me beautiful,
And my anger,
Fear, hurt,
Self-loathing,
fade away.

I kneel before You,
Broken, and crying.

And You –
You call me beautiful.

You call me beautiful,
And Your eyes meet mine,
Wash away tears,
And whisper peace.

I kneel before You,
Embraced in Your Arms;
And You,
You call me beautiful.

You call me beautiful,
And I know that I am beloved.
You see me whole and healed,
And Yours.

In this moment,
There is more than knowing;
There is believing, trusting,
Sensing, that I belong with you.

You look on me,
And call me beautiful.
