captivating


you are a woman

an image bearer of God.

the Crown of Creation

you were chosen before time and space, and you are wholly and dearly loved.

you are sought after, pursued, romanced, the passionate desire of your Fiance, Jesus.

you are dangerous in your beauty and your life-giving power.

you are needed.

.

as a woman who has been ransomed and redeemed, you can be strong and tender.

you speak to the world of God’s mercy, mystery, beauty, and his desire for intimate relationship.

you are inviting

you can risk being vulnerable, offering the weight of your life as well as your need for more because you are safe in God’s love

you labor with God to bring forth life–in creativity, in work, in others.

your aching, awakened heart leads you to the feet of Jesus, where you wait on him and wait for him.

the eyes of his heart are ever upon you

the King is captivated by your beauty

.

we need you

we need you to awaken to God more fully and to awaken to the desires of the heart that He placed within you so that you will come alive to Him and to the role that is yours to play

perhaps you are meant to be a concert musician or a teacher

perhaps you are menat to be an activist for ecology or the poor or the aged or the ill

you are certainly called to be a woman, wherever else He leads you.

that is crucial, dear heart

whatever your particular calling, you are meant to grace the world with your dance, to follow the lead of Jesus wherever he leads you

he will lead you first into himself, and then, with him, he will lead you into the world that he loves and needs you to love

this is all by His Invitation

.

I found this while finishing a book i’ve been reading today and wanted to encourage each of you.
