“For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known.” —1 Corinthians 13:12 (NRSVA)
Years of stretching and pulling
Endless tossing and turning
All the questions, doubts and complete denial
Seeking and searching for your approval
Feeling alone, rejected, an outcast
Looking for understanding and acceptance
Your face was blank, nothing, a void
Running and hiding…I thought from you?
I did not fit! Out of Style! Out of date?
The years have made you soften
The roughness of your edges are slowly disappearing
Truth, it finally came to me…
The most unexpected of places
Not my reflection in a mirror
Not an action or expression
My heart, my very soul-
I had not accepted me
My obstacle in life has begun to fade.

“For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope. Then when you call upon me and come and pray to me, I will hear you. When you search for me, you will find me; if you seek me with all your heart.” — Jeremiah 29:11-13
