to a younger me

Dearest Karin:
the whole world was waiting for you
those were popular words spoken
and the idea swirled wild
that you could do and be
whoever and whatever you wanted
because, after all
life was all about you
your needs
your desires
your happiness

yet you never seemed to reach
that happy place
because no one ever really told you
where to look
the sweet you craved
turned bitter on your tongue
fullness felt hollow
echoing with dissatisfaction

yes, there is more
and He was there beside you
even when you didn't know
and the whole world is His
and you will learn
that true satisfaction comes
in not being who you want
but in surrender 
to who He needs you to be
moment by moment
day by day

an adventure awaits
beyond your wildest imagining
step in
love, as always,

Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, 
and I will listen to you. 
You will seek me and find me 
when you seek me with all your heart.

I can recall so many times before I said 'yes' to Jesus' call on my life that He was wooing me just the same.
What love!
