Your Beauty is Reconciled With Me

Your Beauty is Reconciled With Me

You’re beautiful in the way they know you

            But you’re full of beauty because I created you

I blessed with joy to change the world

            But you built up walls with fear

I blessed you with a calm and composed disposition

            But that doesn’t mean you’ll never be broken

                                                       I blessed you with immense kindness                                                           

            But it’s okay if you struggle to forgive

I blessed you with the heart of a saint

            But that doesn’t mean you’re being held to perfection

 

You’re beautiful in the way you present yourself

            But you’re full of beauty simply because I love you

I blessed you with a deep concern for others

            But you need to accept their concern for you

I blessed you with strength to be a beacon of stability

            But you need to be honest when you need support

I blessed you with a bright smile to express my Love through

            But you’re still allowed to cry

I blessed you with an eye for beauty

            But you need to see the beauty of your broken heart

 

You’re beautiful in the way you’ve been hurt

            But you’re full of beauty because I still love you despite it

I blessed you with meekness

            But you’re allowed to feel anger

I blessed you with courage to leave him

            But you need to believe that you’re free

I blessed you with the desire to heal others

            But you need to stand up for yourself

I blessed you with my gift of a pure, selfless, and sacrificial Love

            But you chose to settle for less

I blessed you with the knowledge of your dignity

            But the world won’t always respect it

I blessed you with class and elegance

So you need to believe that it was never your fault

I blessed you with a longing for safety that you’ll find in the strength of their faith

But instead you allow yourself to feel weak in the strength of their arms

I blessed you with a desire to protect others

            But I’ve created you to be protected and cherished

 

You’re beautiful in the way you serve others with love

            But you’re full of beauty because your heart longs to receive love in return

I blessed you with hands that give all you have

            But you need to take with them too

I blessed you with a childlike trust

            But you need to trust without limitations

I blessed you with humility

            But you need to let go of your pride

I blessed you with a yearning to imitate Simon of Cyrene

            But you need to begin imitating my own lowliness

 

 

You’re beautiful in the way you seek to know me

            But you’re full of beauty because I’ve always known you

I blessed you with a radiance of my Love

            But you don’t even realize it

I blessed you with a desire to meet me

            But you need to keep seeking me

I blessed you with my own exuberant light

            But you need to persevere in carrying this dark cross

I blessed you with a continuous longing for Love

            But you need to open your heart to my mercy

I blessed you with gentleness

            Yet you’re a model of genuine strength

 

I’ve always known you and I’ve always loved you and I always will.

You’re the same girl with the same simply complex and beautiful heart. I made you with care and with a purpose in mind.

Your beauty is reconciled with me. It always has been. I know your heart- I created it. Now share it with the world. I’ve called you as my messenger for a reason. Proclaim my message of Love through your witness.
