I am a woman. An image bearer of God. The Crown of Creation. I was chosen before time and space, and I am wholly and dearly loved. I am sought after, pursued and romanced by the passionate desire of my fiance, Jesus. I am dangerous in my beauty and my life-giving power. I am needed. I am ransomed and redeemed, strong and tender, and I speak to the world of God's mercy, mystery, beauty and His desire for intimate relationship. I am inviting, vulnerable, safe and confident in God's love.
You need me to awaken you to God's role that is yours to play. I long to say to a Godly man, "I need you. I need your strength. I believe in you. You absolutely have what it takes. "Come away, my lover, and be like a gazelle or like a young stag on the spice laden mountains -- Song of Songs 8:14.
