He smiled the day she was born and they called her Joy
He rejoiced as she played with innocence and laughter
He delighted in her heart, in her purity and in her love
He wept as her heart tore for her broken family and loss of security
He called out to her but she did not hear Him
He chased after her but she regarded His people as hypocritical
He pursued her attention and she sought those around her
He searched for her and found her giving in to sexual pressure at an early age
He beckoned for her but she was too entrenched in life to care
He longed for her heart as she turned her attention to the world, again and again
He tormented over every decision He knew was killing her emotionally
He wept longingly as she became financially spent and completely broken
She aimlessly ached for more and He agonized in her despair
Does she not hear Me calling her?
Does she not know the life I have for her?
Does she not know she can be restored?
Of course He knew the answer
Slowly and gently…
He restored my innocence, my purity, and my hope
He redeemed my fears, my insecurities, and my restlessness
He refused to stop loving me
