Would you give me your eyes
to see the heart rather than the outward appearance,
turning the mirror first upon myself,
before I should judge.
Please show me your beauty,
bring revelation of your essence,
give shape, impressions, expressions, and feels
so my heart can touch and taste the beauty of your Spirit.
Wean me off of shiny, sparkly baubles,
distractions that confuse my senses
and dull my spirit
anchoring me to a temporal world
that’s dying and returning to dust.
Let me seek to radiate your beauty Lord
from the inside out,
rather than chase worldly standards
that mock and destroy your image in me.
Help me to delight in you alone,
inviting your presence
deep within me,
desiring to dwell with you in the Holy of holies,
above all else,
and cultivating a gentle, quiet spirit
beautiful to you,
that you would delight, treasure, and take pleasure in,
because you alone are my eternal, forever Bridegroom God.
I love you Lord.
