If I Could Say

If I could say just one more thing

Before my life flits away,

I would tell you how precious you are to the King –

His life, He was willing to pay.

His pain, oh He bled

Like hell itself –

He went through the depths for you

And He waits and He aches- He watches chances slip away

As His heart is pierced right through.

He watches you striving, He watches you fall –

He longs to strengthen your heart;

He sees the destruction that leaves you broken –

He loved you from the start

He catches each tear and keeps them in a bottle

He saw you before you were born –

And you’re so busy living life on your own

His very existence you scorn.

And all He longs to tell you is, “You are worth everything” –

But for now, He cannot be heard –

Yet a glimmer of hope is found now and then,

In a heart that He has stirred.

A gentleman, He will not rain down fire

Or force you to come to His side,

But He promises to be a refuge and help –

A place where you can hide.

Just one thing – His love never fails,

And He’ll wait a lifetime for the prize –

You were worth it all

You are worth it all

Irreplacable, in His eyes.

I am a wife and a mother of two beautiful and spirited young children, living in Australia. Unashamedly, I am a follower of Christ; He is my daily hope and inspiration. I enjoy dabbling in a range of hobbies ! These include (but aren't limited to) gardening, cooking, making cards, playing piano, singing, writing letters, journalling and walking in nature/ identifying animal species. I find it hard to make time for myself but I'm learning that life is too short and sometimes things must be scheduled in or the days slip away without much change. Family and friends are very important to me and I am happiest when I live my life in community.
