I see Him standing there waiting for me
Flowers in His hand

He reaches His hand out to me
And I forget my blame

He says He wants me,
Despite my shame

He says He loves me and
He's calling me by name

He's bigger and better than anything else
I'm comforting by His shining love so clear

In His arms at last
He's holding me through my fears

He guides me and holds me in love
And wipes away my tears

I'm worth the world to Him
And He'll dance with me all day long

Tango, Waltz, and Modern Ballet
While humming the melody to a wonderful song

He runs His fingers through my hair
And brings me roses every day

Red and pink and maybe blue
He takes my hand and we dance the night away

We twirl under the stars in the sky He created
And bask under the moonlight

He smiles at me-
His eyes so bright

He leads me up onto His feet
His Converse resting under mine

He points to the sky above
To show me His design

He holds me closer
And wraps His arms around my back

We are glowing white
Against the black

I rest my head against His chest
And feel His heartbeat

His hands are intertwined with mine
And His words are so sweet

He kisses my forehead
And moves a strand of hair out of my face

I curl up into His arms
And He holds me tightly in place

He stares into my eyes
And a warm smile overtakes His face

He hand touches my cheek
As He whispers,

"You're beautiful to Me.."

The author's comments:
I was thinking about how all too often people are in relationships to find their beauty and worth. I was wondering one day if I would be happier and worth more if I had a boy telling me that who was my boyfriend. Then, I realized that all me, or anyone else, might want from a guy (or girl), is really found in Jesus. My friend told me I should get a boyfriend because "they're great." to which I responded, "I'm going out with God right now." I meant that for the above reasons I mentioned. My beauty and my worth is found in the best Boy ever, Jesus.

Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers, but to be fearless in facing them. Let me not pray for the stilling of my pain, but for the heart to conquer it.
