Killing Me Softly With His Word

Written for and dedicated to…      I love you

I lay back with the book resting on my chest feeling the tender touch of it upon my heart once more. I kept thinking about His precious words of promise and hope. The Lord your God in your midst. The Mighty One will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. I could hear the hum of music in my mind from an old tune, “killing me softly with his song, telling my whole life with his words…he sang as if he knew me in all my dark despair”. I couldn’t stop the tears even if I wanted to so I lay still letting them run freely.

I picked the book up off my chest, letting myself die with each word taken in. He knew me, He knew everything; even that I had grown weary of running from His piercing love. I breathed in deep, understanding that although I was dying to this life I was being reborn into His life. I longed to hear His song of rejoicing over me…someday…someday.
