Poem "Ye Must Be Born Again"

John 3

Recently, I read a talented persons poetry of angst and despair, of gloom and doom. Sad enough to raise your hair. The poem below is for all..but you dear one in particular. The Lord sees every tear, every hair of your head is numbered. Your were created in the dark places yet birthed into light.
Your destiny has been sealed and set before you. Open the door, He stands waiting and knocking.

For He Loves You Completely with His Whole Heart

Ye Must Be Born Again

Oh! I love a happy ending from death to life
But you have recorded a witness of life unto death.

It is not that it should not be told, your witness of old
Nor that you should not be bold, as your heart and thoughts unfold.

The story written as you fling the arrows of your heart
In sorrow of your perceived demise of love that is true

But there is a lover who loves you true and victoriously waits for you
Drop your battered guard and open the door and give Him your all

For out of your darkest dark
He calls you into His perfect light.

As I read your heart cry...I reply
The words of Jesus Christ, a mighty Warrior and the Savior

(Luke 8:52 And all wept, and bewailed her: but he said, Weep not; she is not dead, but sleepeth.)

She was the kind of found that had a soul craving
For a new beginning that only He could create.

The kind that had driven herself useless in the art of life
Yet wanted to be framed as He had painted her.

Soft and yielding, colors unexplored,
Redeemed, restored yet better than before.

A canvas painted and signed,
Chosen for eternity.

And so she dropped her "No trespassing" sign
And invited Him in.

To become beautifully beautiful,
without and within
She chose,
Born Again
